    Thats a neat trick but I guess people with that sort of condition do it constantly and never think twice about it..... or most other things for that matter.
    What I said is that it is highly likely his depressed state of mind had a considerable part to play in why he was racist and associated himself with the flag.

    I believe it was his extremist politics which made him crazy and not the reverse. I cannot prove that - but all the evidence points to it.

    History will not be "corrected" no matter how you try. Give it up.
    Or you could go back in time and convince the Dixiecrats to use some other symbol for their segregationist banner of race hatred, that would be a start. Don't just stand there.... get moving. Find a Delorean or something.

    It appears your response is an emotional one.

    But thats okay.
    Some people would say that she is enabling bad behavior. She seems to be implying that she understands how some inanimate object can cause someone to do a violent act. No one should justify bad behavior because of an inanimate object.
    But, I guess that is the country that we live in.
