My ancesters were too poor to own slaves, Charlie. Had no effect on my interest in joining the Tea Party cause.

My ancestors could not own slaves. They were too busy being raped and pillaged by Cossacks.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

My ancestors weren't slave owners either; they were, on the one hand, Northerners, and on the other Missourans and Iowans who repudiated slavery and fought for the North.

Does he know whether his ancestors were, or weren't, slave owners?  There were 10s of thousands of black slave owners and the way he treats blacks being a master of slaves may be in his blood. :thud:

My family is all from the north.  In fact, I have a great, great, great uncle who is buried at Andersonville. :patriot:

Being from Kentucky - I have ancestors who fought on the side of the Confederacy AND those who fought on the Union side.  Sometimes it was brother against brother.  Regardless, all of them were too poor to own slaves.  When do we get to get past the slavery issue?  Most all of us can go back to some point in history when our ancestors were enslaved by someone, unless we're from a royal family.  Does this define who we are now?

Rangel is a complete idiot.
 
If you want to find 'slave owners', then just go to India, China, any Muslim country, or any Black ruled country in Africa. 'Slavery' is still alive and well outside America. These American Black retards are focused on something that happened in America until the 1860s when they should be focused on slavery that is ongoing even today.
 
But, then again, nobody in all of history has ever accused Black people of being overly intelligent.
 
In any other country in the world, Rangel would be told to get the hell out. Go somewhere else if you don't like America. We don't care.

Many of my ancestors came over from Ireland and Scotland in the 1800's due to the poor conditions they were living under there. My English ancestors came over earlier and always lived in the north. Mine were mostly serfs certainly not the ruling class. I am also distantly related to Abe Lincoln through his real mothers side of the family. Charles Rangel is and always has been an idiot. The slave card just doesn't make me feel guilty nor will it ever since no one I know has any. I look at what some blacks have brought on themselves in the last few decades and feel mostly contempt for the the like of them and high admiration for those blacks who go about their lives building strong families and working and not blaming anyone for the long gone past just working the American dream that has been offered to them just as  it was for us and our ancestors.

My great-great-grandfather (give or take a "great") was a rebel sniper and and I don't feel guilty about slavery. He's the one I referenced who was too poor to have owned slaves anyway.

There's no reason why you should feel guilty in the least.  I'm sure if we dig back far enough in Rangel's ancestry we'll find that he's related to one of the tribes in Africa that used to capture other Africans to sell them into slavery.

The Vikings had a thriving slave culture. It were no biggie - you'd be a slave for 20 years or so, then get your freedom. Sort of like being a villein, but with an expiration date.

A vast majority of Confederate soldiers didn't own slaves. They were not fighting to preserve or protect slavery in the first place. They took up arms to fight the oppressive actions of the federal government against the South. Plain and simple.

Like then, there is War of Northern Aggression that is being conducted against the South.

Maybe this time it will have the right outcome.

Everyone is a descendent of slave owners at some point in their lineage, even Rangel.
