Emotion Versus Fact

For something that happened so long ago and outside the living memory of us today, it sure can elicit emotional responses. I received an unexpected reply to my email merely suggesting a website I fell upon for information about the event as I found it useful. Why did the writer have to denounce the www.1898wilmington.com site and promote his or her own? I will look at both and not think that each is the whole truth, but I want a diversity of opinion on the issue to formulate my own view. When someone denounces something so virulently, I suspect there is something they do not want me to see on the website they seem to hate. It appears that there was no "race riot" until some black people opened fire on white people at 4th and Harnett Streets. Who can defend those who started it?
