I commented on the thread about Northam.

So no.

This narrative..i.e. that the Civil War was primarily about slavery--is simply the invention of the left in America nowadays.

The Civil War began because of a fealty to states' rights--including (but not limited to) the right to secede--and was transmuted, midway through it, by then-President Lincoln: He could not stop the "Copperhead" movement in the North (which desired to let the South go its own way) through a mere desire to keep the country together. Rather, he needed a moral cause. And an end to slavery was precisely that.

Hence, he announced--on September 22, 1862, during the Emancipation Proclamation--that the slaves would be freed, as of January 1, 1863--in all those states that were currently "in rebellion" against the United States of America.

A little history of black face.

Quote:
The origins of blackface date back to the minstrel shows of mid-19th century. White performers darkened their skin with polish and cork, put on tattered clothing and exaggerated their features to look stereotypically "black." The first minstrel shows mimicked enslaved Africans on Southern plantations, depicting black people as lazy, ignorant, cowardly or hypersexual, according to the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC).

The performances were intended to be funny to white audiences. But to the black community, they were demeaning and hurtful.

One of the most popular blackface characters was "Jim Crow," developed by performer and playwright Thomas Dartmouth Rice. As part of a traveling solo act, Rice wore a burnt-cork blackface mask and raggedy clothing, spoke in stereotypical black vernacular and performed a caricatured song and dance routine that he said he learned from a slave
Jim Crow came to be the popular name for the segregation laws passed and maintained by Southern Democrats. The Left, especially Democrats, don't want anything to remind the populace of their historical support for racism.

Megan Kelly was fired from her NBC show for suggesting that black face was simply a costume.
