If you lived in Massachusetts, odds are you were against slavery. If you lived in Georgia, the opposite was true. The point is that we people, no matter what race we are, have no business judging what was right or wrong 150 years ago. We can and should study and learn from it. Impressing “white guilt” on me, tearing down statues, and redacting the history of this country will only eventually cause us to make the same mistakes because we have forgotten how we got here as a nation.
