The Stars and Bars is Racist! The End!

I am a serious Lynerd Skinnerd Fan! Love "Sweet Home Alabama, Tuesdays gone, That smell, Working for MCA, and Simple Man.  If I never heard "Free Bird" again, It would be too soon. That said, I always wanted to kick they old asses for using the Stars and Bars as their banner.

Southern Heritage, my beautiful Black booty! It's a Confederate flag! It's symbolism is rooted in the murder, rape and subjugation of an entire people. Is that a heritage that you want to honor and pass on?

I enjoy a good bowl of grits on occasion, I'm no stranger to some good BBQ. My Mama makes Black Eyed Peas for New Years day! Those are Southern Traditions. I give honor to them.

No ,My European American Brothers and Sisters from the Southern United States.  The Stars and Bars is not your heritage. It's part of our collective story but not our collective heritage.  Rape, Murder, Slavery, Torture, False imprisonment are not values. 

Why am I writing about this? Presidential Candidate John McCain got caught up on if his stance of the Stars and Bars years back in the South Carolina primary.  He cowered to those supporters and sold his integrity.  He later stated.

"The Stars and Bars is a Loser Flag. It symbolizes the division of the United States and was the banner in a war that tore apart the country." Sen. John McCain

I wasn't gonna vote for you John but I would have respected you. Instead, you said it afterwards. Blast your oily politician Hyde!

Listen here White Folks! (European Americans) Your Afrikan American Neighbor may not say it but He/She is offended by the flag.  They are your neighbors, your kids go to school together. You borrow each others tools and help one another as neighbors.  We are one people although we do not always understand or agree with one another. Understand this. The Stars and Bars, The Confederate Flag has meant the Same Evil, Satanic Thing that it's has since it's inception.

Never Buy Texas from a Cowboy and Don't try to sell that Bull ish to me!

BE Prayerful! BE Mindful! BE Careful!

A group bought an old motel not too far from where I live.
They had a huge Confederate Flag hanging on the front wall.
But the road was one on which a lot of people entered the city.
The city made them take it down.
(They illegaly changed the zoning laws to make it illegal for this group to own the property.)
I hated this.
The city violated the rights of these racists in an effort to make the city seem less racist.
But most people in this town ARE racist (both Blacks and whites).
While I don't like the flag and see no value in it - I'm not sure how to go about removing it from public view.

I am against making it illegal for any group to own property. That is a misuse of power however I am not against laws being created to make sure they do not become a public nuisance. The group should not be allowed to provoke people to action in favor of them or against them. I don't know if that makes sense but they should be watched.

Oh, they ARE watched.
Their building is not far from an all Black neighborhood in which most local politicians and professional live.
I think the people who own the building got upset when they saw the houses being built by prosperous Blacks nearby.

its not racist people in fact most southern people didnt own slave and when they were asked why they did it for slavery most answered if it was for slavery then we would have dropped our guns and went home then they were also asked why they were fighting and a famous quote from one was " because your down here." its not racist and people who think its racist needs a history lesson you may say well neo nazis fly it but they also fly the american flag so your theory there makes no sense so stop trying to make things what they arent thank you
