    Well, I spent a number of years in the Deep South and they are some of the best people you can ask for. Open and friendly at least if your white. The only two states that I have run into open racism was TX and SC. TX from whites and SC from blacks. No one way street or this subject.
    The idea that only whites can be racist is one of those great unspoken myths.

    I lived in Asia for years growing up, and some of the most explicit yet ignorant racism I ever experienced was there.

    Racism as a topic is never simple, sadly.

      Why not just knock all the monuments down and try to erase history.
      My worst jump story:
      My 13th jump was on the 13th day of the month, aircraft number 013.
      As recorded on my DA Form 1307 Individual Jump Log.
      No lie.

        You are undoubtedly correct, which makes the vehemence and urgency even more laughable. I really don't understand how one could want to be in a state of perpetual turmoil.

          Oh come now, no need to be offended by the thought. It would certainly make the confederacy more palatable if every monument was forced to bear a flag saying 'we were scum' out front. That way everyone gets their wish. Pretty clever, right?

          Besides, it's not like anyone would be bothered by a little old flag. It's a win-win!

            This is indeed the quote of the day when it is posted on a forum full of conservatives in a permanent state of outrage over the 'issue of the day'.....whatever that issue might be today. Its like '5 minutes of hate' on a constant loop.

              Yes, those darn conservatives calling for the sale of the Battle Flag to be halted in National Park Service gift shops and speculating whether the Jefferson Memorial should be torn down. Yes, they are the ones in a state of permanent outrage....

              • Well, if the Battle Flag is so offensive.....can they fly the 1st National instead? After all, it's an American Flag......

                  I've always liked the 1st National.

                    I much prefer the 3rd national myself.

                        I am a sucker for white and red flags - I also love the design for Northern Cyprus' flag.

                        To be fair, I think the 3rd national would be better if the battle flag were replaced with something else - something a little simpler and not so busy - but the stark contrast of the colors is pleasing to the eye.

                          Go for it, you can try to erase history but some things you just can't.

                            And how is that erasing history?

                              Apparently you're not listening to the black assemblage.

                                I'm asking you how putting up a different flag is, in your words, erasing history.
