what the heck was he doing with 316 slaves, one is bad in anyone's book 

But it was common place ....even dirt farmers often had a slave or two 

Doesn't make it right though 

Who said it was?

I know that Baz, it was normal then...but 316, he must have had some pile of land  

Yes, he did .....some of the plantations were vast

The best stories from America for me were Little House on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder..............

Some libraries over here have pulled those because of racist overtones. They say they don't stand up to time. 

Yet Margaret Mitchell's Gone With the Wind is still a classic

Give it time, they will pull that too

What does thwt mean?

Just to be clear I just saw about them pulling the Little House books on the news, I don't agree with this and I hate how divided USA is fueled by the current regime. 

What makes her 'History Books' anymore invalid than those that they want left on the bookshelves?
