Are we going too far?
« on: June 10, 2020, 10:23:14 PM »
This one was a shocker to me.

Now there will be a movement to ban all Confederate Flags!

I am trying to find a way to disagree with you but am failing.

Small people talk about other people.
Average people talk about things
BIG PEOPLE TALK ABOUT IDEAS.

Pretty shocking. I would've thought they'd be one the last holdouts...

It is not just "they". Is NASCAR part of "they"?

Can we ban the NHL for being too white?

It has to do with cost.
Why do you think the NBA is dominated by black athletes?

I'd imagine that the Confederate flag to a black person would be like a Jew seeing a Nazi flag. I sure wouldn't feel comfortable at events with the Nazi flag flying.

Why does the Confederate flag still have a place in today's society other than on statues or in museums?

Terrible comparison. In any case Southerners are very proud of their heritage.

Enlighten me?
Heritage of slavery? Isn't that why the confederacy was born and eliminated? Plenty of great heritage in the south, but why does the Confederate flag represent it?

Many southerners say that. How did the flag come about?
