"The Dynamic is the same. Fear."
Hate is almost always aligned with fear and Trump has propagated that theme. LMAO to see all these lemmings running off the cliff in fear of their lives. GROW some Nads for Gawd sakes.

"You needed to be wealthy to own slaves."
By 1860, there were more millionaires (slaveholders all) living in the lower Mississippi Valley than anywhere else in the United States.

"The attitude was that since the Govt was responsible for bringing slaves here, the govt should be responsible for bringing them back."
Where do you get this stuff? The first slaves were brought over by the Dutch and slavery was largely run by the wealthy businessmen and not the Govt. although certain states did support slavery.

The Dynamic is the same. Fear. Remember most people in the south didn't own slaves, nor had any say on the matter. You needed to be wealthy to own slaves. The attitude was that since the Govt was responsible for bringing slaves here, the govt should be responsible for bringing them back, not dump them on their communities. They feared what the freed slaves might feel justified to do to their communities if the US government decided to just place them in those communities in the south. This fear is a major reason why southerners took up arms on this issue. And right now, many are afraid of what Middle Eastern immigrants, many whom have been victims of US military aggression in the middle east, might feel justified to do to their communities if allowed to freely roam in the US. Its the same dynamic.
