4. Furthermore, slavery was bad because black lives matter.

The entirety of American History is a compromise of its fundamental principles, “We hold these truths to be self evident ... blah, blah.

The Revolution and the Civil War can be viewed as Slavery War I and Slavery War II. In both rebellions, secession was motivated by the fear of abolition in the near future. Somerset vs. Stewart, decided in 1772 London, portended the abolition of slavery in the Empire. Emancipation was considered much more oppressive and costly than taxation without representation, search and seizure or any of the other more commonly cited causes of the Revolution.

The road to American redemption has always been the struggle to create a more perfect union. This is what the protest is about - not the flag, but the republic for which it stands.
