I came across this excellent article and just had to share it. William Black is a Ph.D. candidate at Rice University. In this article he recounts his intellectual growth from a neconfederate to someone who actually knows history. His article shows that even someone with neoconfederate beliefs can change if they just have the intellectual curiosity, integrity, and ability to learn.
Predictably, many permanent neoconfederates are upset because the truth of their stupidity hurts. Some of these idiots even think the article is about modern politics. That’s because these morons have no clue. They think mention of Hillary Clinton’s repeating of a lost cause falsehood regarding Reconstruction is an example of modern politics. People with functioning brains, though, understand it’s an example of the pervasiveness of lost cause nonsense without regard to ideology.
