    Unless you're denying altogether that racism exists — in which case we have plenty of Kossacks of many backgrounds here who can educate you — you simply have no case at all that the Confederacy was somehow less racist than the NSDAP.

    •  I think the argument could be made (0+ / 0-)

      but I'm gonna concede it as it stands; I was thinking more of the contemporary South than of the Confederacy, and on rereading the comment I replied to, that was erroneous.

      I don't think that "they're both racist" is sufficient to justify comparison to Nazi Germany, but the institution of race-based slavery is.
