    I'll fly you to Detroit, Michigan. I'll pay you $20 dollars an hour for five days in a row to proudly wave the confederate flag.

    We'll see how long you last.

    Those of us in the REAL world understand that, except for the deep South, the Confederate flag has come to symbolize racism, bigotry, hate & violence & to attempt to claim otherwise is a desperate dodge to try to defend Wilson.

    Maybe you don't understand what coincidence means. So I'll go slower.

    You're claim is that Wilson voted for the flag because he believes fully in what it used to stand for. The fact that there are groups which use it as such demonstration does not mean that Wilson himself believes that. You are using coincidence, equating two unrelated things through a coincidence of use. Thus my question remains the same. Do you have actual proof. No more coincidence and supposition, actual proof. Do you have it?

    Are you sure, it might just be a "coincidence."

    *sigh* Maybe America really is becoming stupid.

    The KKK using the confederate flag does not mean that everyone who may like the flag believes in the same thing. That is coincidence, not actual proof. Would you like to provide actual proof or are you just going to subsist off of supposition?

    That flag represents slavery, violence and oppression.

    Thats why the KKK uses it. Thats why it was voted to be taken down from many capitol hall buildings...

    ...because it was an insult to the African-American population.

    Stop playing stupid.

    So is the American flag and protesting. I guess that means the American flag and protesting are racist; according to your logic, anyway.

    Don't insult a flag that liberated an entire people from their slave masters by equating it with the Confederate trash.
    You're the one who is suggesting that anything the KKK regularly associates itself with is inherently racist; which - according to your logic - would make the American flag, protesting, and white linen racist...

    PROVE WILSON BELIEVES THIS WAY. For the love of all that is holy, all I want is actual proof. Not your opinion, not coincidence with other groups, not supposition. All I want is proof, not mindless circular rhetoric. Can you provide it?

    And I'm telling you that is bullsnot.

    I do not care what people "think" it means.

    I am interested in what it does mean, what it was a symbol of.

    Hatred, racism and slavery.

    Maybe for some but who are you to deny them their symbols?

    To me it represents a period in American history that should not be forgotten lest we repeat it. Banning it would be just as bad as burning books.
    Thank you

    Opinion, coincidence, supposition. Actual proof, present it or admit you're full of poo on this one.
