Thanks freedom and Malgus for helping me understand the situation is pretty complicated and not so simple as I thought maybe it could be. As I indicated, up here in Vermont we just don’t have much of any real life exposure to the racial and ethnic diversity of the country. It is the rare day that I encounter a minority of any kind. I read in the paper that there are an estimated 1,500 illegals in VT, most of them being Mexican farm workers, but I don’t have firsthand knowledge of any of them.
I’m thinking now that who aligns with who come a civil war will depend upon the nature of that war and what triggered it.
