A Memorable Statement

From a Metafilter thread:

The Civil War ended 138 years ago, and Confederate apologists are still arguing and fighting about the damage and effects on the south, but if you ask these same people about the effects of slavery 140 years ago, they'll give you a nice long explanation about how that was so long ago that it couldn't possibly have anything to do with what's happening today.
How true.
