GeneralAlso your quote is intellectually dishonest Pin

The full quote from salon.com:

Quote:
But revisionists also claimed that the North did not go to war over slavery. If there were “interests” involved, they were the interests of Northern capitalists against Southern agrarians. The Civil War was an accident brought on by bungling politicians. The abolitionists were a tiny, beleaguered minority; most Northerners shared the general conviction of black racial inferiority. 
The South had slavery, the argument went, but the North was racist too. This argument, in turn, was really just a revival of the antebellum Democratic Party’s relentless efforts to shift the terms of debate from slavery to race.


Do you even understand why this is dishonest quoting? You can't just point to a source that says "someone else who agrees with me also said this" with no supporting information. And you're lecturing me on context? We're done here.
