Whatever evil happened under the Confederate flag happen under the American flag for twenty times as long, and much worse. All slave were brought to the United States by Yankees who liked it as long as they were making money and not allowing free blacks to live in their states. The first American Slavery was in Massachusetts, and at the time the constitution was written all states had slavery. The only reason they can say the war was about slavery is because Yankees feel they can tell Southerner what they were thinking and continually quote a few pieces of paper signed by a handfull of people. If you read the material written prior to the war, you will find that the north was far more racist that the south.
