If you want to be specific, then by all means we can shift the discussion to something else entirely! But maybe its best if we stick to this topic, at least on this thread.
Is everyone that disagrees with you about the flag racist? Yes or no.

No, if I thought that I'd say that. It's a ridiculous notion.Do you believe that everyone that disagrees with you about flying the flag is a racist?
And I answered your question. I don't make ignorant stereotypes like this, "bitter angry narrow minded hate filled cause driven assholes," about people who have different opinions than I do. It's entirely possible that those who disagree merely disagree but are otherwise good people.
And yes, everyone rebelling against Britain was a traitor to the crown. Are you saying equal justification existed for the confederacy? Fighting a war to maintain slavery was equivalent to the American Revolution?
And what is the hypocrisy? We have an opinion about a flag. Others disagree. And expressing our views pro or con on this issue doesn't mean we think it's a critical issue, not even in the top 100. I can't speak for anyone else, but I don't think this forum is an actual vehicle for solving the world's problems. It's entertainment and a diversion, and for me is a good way to defend my beliefs against others who are intelligent and disagree.
To them, their cause was as noble and justified as the patriot 'traitors' that rebelled against the crown.
And California certainly has a fairly strong tradition of oppression of Asian people. Is that their lasting legacy? Shall we judge all Californians on their racism and oppression?
