The soldiers of the Confederate army in the American civil war were far from a "tiny proportion"

What percentage of soldiers from the Confederate Army  didn’t want to go to war, but we’re not given the option as to whether they wanted to join the army?

I would've interpreted it as clumsiness on the part of Rudd but then I'm not a black woman whose had a great deal of abuse and threats.

It's interesting to know that its given plenty of ammunition to Abbott's enemies on here to have a go at her. It doesn't take much....

 

Me too, I would have expected better from someone high up in public office. 

Especially as so often they're adept at evading the question asked of them and reading from their own prepared script.

Sky news transcript of comment is:

Ms Rudd had been speaking about the online abuse of politicians on BBC Radio 2's Jeremy Vine Show when she used the term.

She said: "It definitely is worse if you're a woman, and it's worst of all if you're a coloured woman.

"I know that Diane Abbott gets a huge amount of abuse and I think that's something we need to continue to call out."

quite why anyone would be sick enough to want to rape her i dont know! but she brings a lot of the abuse upon herself not with her politics but with what she says and how she says it? she typifies whats wrong with politics and public speaking.

Hold on a minuet! In the 50s I was brought up  to say coloured by my parents and even the teachers.  If offends I certainly will not use the term again.

Have you just tried to excuse away death and rape threats as being the fault of the person who receives them?

It looks like you said

 

but she brings a lot of the abuse upon herself 

 

And given the context of discussion of rape and death threats it looks a lot like you were trying to make an excuse for them.
