Can you think of any living people for whom the Confederate flag has positive connotation?

There are millions. All you have to do is travel south of the Mason-Dixon line.

Huh?

My whole point is that it has a racist meaning to Southern whites who "fly it proud." However, if you concede that they see racism (hatting n*ggers) as a good thing (which they do) then yes, it does have a positive meaning to them.

Well, now I have no idea what to think. Here's what just popped up in OOT:

It's not that I thought Eurotrash was posting something racist. It's that there's now a lot more swastika association than I thought there was, especially after seeing that post. I couldn't see any swastika when Dcifr first posted this, but he's far from the only person who sees it, apparently. I'm still leaning towards just leaving the avatar be, and I saw the humor in the picture, but I see that the issue isn't as cut and dry as I thought.

I'm just going to stay out of the Confederate Flag debate.

Basically, it is a hate symbol. It does not "really" stand for state's rights... people learned in Southern politics know what most (Southern) people mean when they "state's rights" anyhow, and that "heritage not hate" is a lie.

Considering it was on states flags till the politically correct crowd removed it in 2001, to a great uproar by those in Georgia, I call complete bullsh1t.

I am the same race, color, decent and nationality as the people I was talking about. Your definition proves that you're completely wrong, so thanks for looking that up.


[/ QUOTE ]

The fact that you're the same race, olor, descent, and nationality does not prevent your statement from being racist.

This conversation is retarded.
Recent mississippi flag



Recent georgia.





And when I said old I mean 2001. But political correctness caused SC, GA, and many others to take their flags down or change them in this decade. Everyone I know from the south (outside of the internet) does not equate it with slavery or hate.

As for my lack of maturity, you'd think it would have stopped stunning you a while back since I've been aggressively open about how much I dislike you for months.

I am not sure if it is a case of growing up but you really should show more respect to the other mods. We should all be trying to moderate these forums in a professional manner. I think this precludes getting into 'pissing matches' with other mods.

Thank you,
