Confederate Statues Unmoved in Richmond, Va.-- Part 2

And, Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney lamblasted everything about the Confederacy in a news conference last week at City hall:  "Equal parts myth and deception, they were the 'alternative facts' of their time -- a false narrative etched into stone and bronze more than 100 years ago -- not only to lionize the architects and defenders of slavery, but to perpetuate the tyranny and terror of Jim Crow and reassert a new era of white supremacy."

Here is obviously a man who does not care for the Confederacy.  That was scathing.

And, who were his "architects of slavery?"

Isn't there something about Blacks in Africa selling Blacks into slavery, or white European and Northern merchants buying the slaves in Africa and transporting them to the New World, or the fact that slavery was tried in the North, but failed (the 1800 census of New York City showed about a third of the people listed in some sections as being slaves).  Then, what did those Northerners do with their slaves?  Give them their freedom?

Nope, they sold them to the South.

Who really were the architects of slavery?

I'd have to say pretty much everybody, just the South got caught holding the bag.
