    There has been slavery in all parts of the world at some point in history.





    They were enslaved for a 1000 years in Africa before their ancestors sold them to Americans. Americans did commit the atrocity of buying them.

    That being said - how to ever make it right is a monumental task.

    Never heard of her or the term, I thought it might be some sort of feminine product.

    people called them Lady A for short already. I don't see how the word Antebellum was closely related to slavery. The article I read said it was a word from pre civil war area for a style of house

    what's worst, the people that Sold them, or the people that bought them?
    I would say both the same.

    but instead of blaming only the Americans, how about we give some blame to the portuguese and europeans that started it all.
    if it wasn't for them, they might have not even been here in the first place. Let's chop this up to all involved.

    also I believe it was the middle east that started buying them first, so now that's another slice of the pie to chop up.

    How to make it right? well it's been a long time and I think we have come a long way. Hard to change "History" you can only move forward
    but what's going on now is over the top, you're not changing what happened 100's of years ago overnight. Sorry

    Where are you hearing white men say they are oppressed? We are just sick of lies and tired of trying to appease unappeasable children.

    How have you been oppressed? What a crock of Schiff LOL

    Some people just need to focus more on their own lives and stop worrying about what others are doing. If I don't like something I just vote with my dollars. You don't like the Dixie Chicks name, then don't purchase their music or apparel and don't go to their concerts. Shaming people is childish.

    That's what I do. I haven't bought their music or seen them live since they were trash talking Bush in England. I actually turn the radio station too when they come on

    \



    come to find out, that whore above is part of sugarland, another equally homosexual name for a county music outfit, and another reason I haven't listened to county music since about 1995, other than all the good shit that is now considered classic......

    new country sucks my nuts, and not in a good way..........

    Just finding out about this.

    What was the point of this if the A still stands for Antebellum?
    Anyway, update. They are beefing with a black blues singer over "Lady A".

    Lol, it can stay...unless the British ever reconquer Virginia.

    "Delaney explains that the term lynching is actually named after Lynch's brother, Charles Lynch.

    Charles Lynch would tie British soldiers to a tree and beat them until they cried” Liberty!” which would stop the beating since that meant they agreed with the revolution.

    From there it evolved into what we know today -- the racist killings of African Americans."
