We have a “Gorillas in the Mist” thread but PCU level triggering when Skelly starts a thread about Cgrad’s and BDK’s homies.
Anyone notice all the black posters slowly left this site one by one...

Well, except Dal. Nothing gets rid of that guy :ohno:

You know I struggle somewhat with this one. I grew up with a Confederate flag hanging in my bedroom. Went to southern rock concerts in my late teens and early adulthood with a confederate battle flag hanging behind the stage. To me it said "I'm southern. I proud to be Southern. I like southern music, southern food, southern literature, even southern accents. ;) "

So from that level, I have no problem with the battle flag.

On the other hand, after I became an adult and had adult conversations with black friends and co-workers and understood the agony their family suffered with the KKK and other groups waving the flag in their face. I concluded that their arguments against the flag were stronger than arguments for it. I am very sad about the incident that promoted the removal of the flag from the SC State house grounds, but very glad it has been moved.

With that said, I still know people that have a flag somewhere, on their car or in their front yard and as far as I can tell based on the conversations I have with them, they fly it for the southern heritage reasons I stated above and they are not the people pictured in the first post. They aren't racists, although maybe somewhat insensitive.

Personally, I would prefer the flag to stay out of sight but like most issues, it isn't as easy as we would like for it to be.
All good points. Bad people doing bad things can certainly dictate what symbols mean. The swatzika was a good symbol before the Nazis got their hands on it.
:thumb: to both posts. I would love to see us take back certain names and symbols that have been hijacked by bigots. The Betsy Ross Flag is an example. It's a symbol of American freedom and we need to take it back from racist groups that appropriated it. Unfortunately, too much damage was done under the Confederate flag and the swastika for them to be redeemed.

What groups? Its been used at POTUS inaugurations for ages. Their wiki page makes no mention.

It was the Race
They said the Master Race
It caught on after grace
Just name the place
And in your face
It was the Master Race

I love the South and I love Alabama. I just love it enough to recognize its flaws and shortcomings. :thumb:

Disheartening is the word of 2020. People have truly lost their minds. A bunch of stupid Don Quixote motherfuckers. .
