The Confederate American Is
As noted on our home page, The Confederate American (aka Confederate Blog or ConfederateBlog.com) is a blog dedicated to the preservation of our culture, the celebration of our heritage, and the exploration of any relevance such may have on America and the South today. Briefly stated we are Southern enthusiasts!
The Confederate American is not
There is no denying the existence of slavery and racist notions, which are interwoven in the fabric of both American and Confederate history. However, such is often misunderstood and proportionately misplaced, wrongly painting the South as a racist, bigoted, morally inferior, and villainous foe to the otherwise glorious emancipating North. Such is not the case!
While we intend to present a more accurate and balanced perspective in regards to slavery and racism in our joint culture and heritage, we cannot deny that racism, and more so slavery, existed in the South. However, this site is not, nor will it’s use be allowed to become, a platform for racism.
We promote heritage, not hate.
We provoke pride, not prejudice.
We honor the sanctity of human life, for God has “made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth” (Acts 17:26). Which truth attests to the essential equality of all men, irregardless of their race (and yes, we purposefully used the term irregardless over regardless). Besides, the Confederacy consisted of many loyal black men, both free and slave. It even had a diverse group of minorities, including Jews and Muslims!
What The Confederate American is not is racist.
