    Guess what? You can pretty much put anything in the last two slots. So the question only is
    how many things do you want to ban?


    Let's start with the Confederate flag and "Gone With the Wind".

    Does anyone have any other ideas?

    And it's 72% of blacks that view it as a symbol of racism, not 75%.
    You ignore that those blacks view it as a symbol of hate because that is what it was used for since the 1950's. Those that see it otherwise are just ignoring history not embracing it or honoring it. Blame the racists that poisoned the flag not the blacks that remember.

    No one is saying that. What we are saying is that having a traitorous symbol of hate flag on government property does not send the best message.

    A long time ago, when I had more hair I had that used on me by the wife of the Prime Minister of Canada, Margaret Trudeau, in the beginning stages of a nervous breakdown was attending a Liberal fund raiser. She had just come from Washington where Nixon's court had snubbed her because her hemline was way too high - she had great legs btw. We were ordered not to speak top her and, being trained in America and believing in the right of a free press I approached her and asked "were you surprised at the issue made of your dress at the White House? Her reply, a smiling "Quite frankly my dear, I don't give a damn"

    Wrong.

    That wasn't the U.S. flag in the early part of WWII.

    Sure they are. That's why Dylann Roof's name keeps coming up repeatedly. It's why his murder of 9 innocent people keeps coming up when discussing the flag.

    No, his horrific racist crime did inspire people to look at our society, see what's wrong, and get involved to try and change it. When you have a person commit such a horrible racist crime, it's a little harder to see a racist symbol being flown on public property.

    His crime inspired people to look at a flag. In other words, the flag had something to do with what he did.Extra points for using "racist" multiple times in 2 sentences.

    It is YOUR claimed skills that are indeed the problem.
