National Geographic to 'Drain the Ocean' on Confederate submarine Hunley recovery


The Confederate submarine H.L. Hunley sat buried on the sea floor for more than a century. Now a TV show is going to peel away 18 feet of ocean to show you where it was.
National Geographic Television's "Drain the Oceans" shipwreck and treasure series will feature the Charleston Civil War artifact on Monday's broadcast.
Using computer-generated imagery, the show displays "what the oceans' floors would look like if they could be seen," according to the series website.

The imagery literally drains the water away in front of viewers' eyes. In this case it means exposing the wrecked submarine on the sea bed.

<Supporters of the Confederate monument shouted "You're a traitor!" and "Traitors to Chatham County!" as the board members spoke.>

This is rich!  Am I the only one that sees the hypocrisy?

Interesting reading on treason. Opinions differ.

Don't have a problem with the name change, object to the $40-60k study for a name selection and the million for rebranding

There is a difference between fighting racist tendencies and white-shaming.  White shaming by the moral superior [sarc button on] seems to be a trendy activity at the moment. White shaming is precisely why Trump is the prez, but many are too retarded to figure this out. 

I'm all for removing the historic statue in Pittsboro, and replacing it with sculpture of a multi racial, transgender shim, being mounted by a transgender man-she.

White shaming, slut shaming, body shaming, fat shaming --- all are futile if poised, comfortable, sanguine, and self-aware.

Very true, but it's challenging to be comfortable, sanguine, and self aware in the midst of an emerging civil war.

Reading the article and seeing that we are all up in arms because the Civil War was an unjust war leads me to conclude one day soon we will bulldozer down the Vietnam Wall because according to many it was an unjust war. My little hometown in New England has a pillar of granite with my name on it along with all the other unjust warriors during that war, three of whom have an * beside their names because they came home in a bodybag - 30 years (maybe less) from now that will likely be ripped out.

We are going down the tube folks.

Nay, there is no emerging civil war and we're not going down the tubes.  We're merely suffering one more weak moment in human evolution.  We've been hating, killing, enslaving, dominating from the moment we emerged from the ooze.  Most tribalism sucks.
 
My Nostradamus vision tells me we'll destroy our home first.  Al, no worries; we'll not be around to experience our biggest FU. 

Many forms of 'shaming' will likely serve no one.  Now, human shaming may hold some worth.  Plus, early in life I shamed myself clean from the superstitious.  Now, I'm working on personal dogmatic ignorance shaming - tough road.
