My Business Ethics professor sums it up

As an aside to discussing recent population shifts in America in general:

“It’s fascinating that after all this country has gone through regarding minority acceptance … we still have emphatic debates about the Civil War and whether Lincoln wanted to free the slaves or save the Union.  Northerners still say he wanted to free the slaves and Southerners still say he wanted to save the Union.  Perhaps they’re both right.”

Something to think about.

(There was no further discussion in the class.)
