Racist views at Homeliving

The Homeliving blog was started on December 3, 2004. But lately a post has appeared on January 3, 2003, supporting Lady Lydia’s views that black slaves lead a happy life. Suprised at the time gap….well Lady Lydia is well known for editing and re-editing controversial posts.
But be warned! The minute Lady Lydia knows that someone has criticised this post she is going to delete it.

For further research: the natural born citizenship was created in order to give these people , former slaves, full citizenship in the U.S. It was not for the purpose of giving immigrants a chance to come to the US and have children to make them citizens and collect welfare or other government benefits.

The comments which first started the controversy were:
” don’t care about what the slaves did in Egypt, and I don’t care about the women in the factories in Victorian times, or the women in the work houses in Edwardian times. What I care about is what the Bible teaches women about how to live.” It is possible that even in the slave era in America, that many women stayed in their cabins having babies and fixing meals for their husbands in the cotton fields.
But then Lady Lydia deleted the original post, the minute Christians started protesting about this. So far Lady Lydia has deleted the posts on scantily-clad victims of Katrina, rude comments from her readers, What if article on black slaves being “happy in slavery,” and the posts on “silly women.”
