    Again, the symbolism can legitimately be different for different people. What it meant, historically, *hasnt changed.* If people want to fly it, good for them. As you wrote...they lost. Seems dumb to me to keep celebrating it but up to them. But it's inappropriate for a govt office or organization to do so when that state or local govt receives fed funds. A bit childish.

    And where did I ever say I hated anyone? Honey, your emotions have gotten the better of you. Now, dry those tears and off you go!
    I bet you hate me right now. I am living in your head rent free.

    Ahhhh but it only matters what YOU think and you dont even live in SC....you live in the hippy north west where you are racist if your black tires are underinflated.

    Of course you are...you are getting all hateful of people because they disagree with you. YOU support FORCING people to do things they dont want to do. Normally the tyrant does not know he is a tyrant (even though I am directly telling you).

    THEY dont think they are racist...but you know them better than they know themselves apparently. You...on your porch (I am there with you, for free)...know people 2000 miles away BETTER than they know themselves. Some ego you have there.

    How's SC being forced to do anything? They've faced protests and economic hardships over this flag for years and haven't taken it down. Now, after the Charleston shooting, the legislature of SC has decided to take it down.

    Expressing an opinion isn't "forcing" someone to do something. South Carolina exercised its "state right" to fly the flag, and has now exercised that same right to take it down.

    Maybe your tears blurred your eyes and you couldnt read what I wrote. I wrote the opposite of the bold. Never called anyone racist. Never used the word, said people could do and believe as they like.

    Hmmm....I am such a brutal tyrant!

    Just because people offended by that flag lived quietly under it for generations doesnt mean it was right for the govt to fly it...Its being recognized as a symbol of slavery and racism isnt new....otherwise that psycho Roof wouldnt have fastened onto it in the first place.

    I dont have a problem because Im tolerant and not a sensitive hipster pussy liberal douche (Ive went over this already). I would recommend that you join the club.
    Stop being proud of human trafficking and slavery. It was ugly, and if you support it............................
