You know...now that you mention it.....we should all really start envisioning a world where anything created by those old farty white dudes didn't exist, right? Just to be totally fair and make sure we're not oppressing ANYONE, let's do away with EVERYTHING we didn't personally handcraft from ideas generated by our own brains without the influence of other cultures or civilizations from any point in history.
I'm really good at making charcoal and fire, and will be happy to paint the caves for your amusement here....although at this juncture I have the feeling levity might not be a concept you're familiar with so let's see if you're familiar with sarcasm.
Since even as little as two people will eventually find fault with something to do with the other at some point - no matter how much a trifle or insignificant - thereby let's make sure to do away with everyone other than ourselves. Cna't have ANYONE being offended, right?
Oh, wait - some people are offended by the concept of God, and others offended by the virtues of Science, so we'll have to do away with all that rot as well. No outside influences that might be OFFENSIVE, right? Whoops - there went the planet, the universe and all the laws of physics.
Equal opportunity, folks - here we go!
Hang tight, it'll be over in a second.
Well that was easy.
Sure is dark out here in the cold void.
Kinda lonely too.
Well, on the bright side - AT LEAST THERE'S NO ONE GETTING OFFENDED.
*PROTIP : if such causality were to actually occur, you'd end up psychotic and fighting with yourself. Been there, done that. Ain't fun. Humor doesn't need to be responded to when there are plenty of other people willing to beat this horse to death alongside you. Best of luck. May your outcome be less severe than my final solution suggestion. Have a nice day and thanks for reading.

And also in reference to people being on yout currency that arent presidents. Well surely thats a good thing. Shows that anybody, regardless of background can be recognised enough to be respected by appearing on money.
Like in britain. Old liz is on the front of every note. But we also have citezens of extreme prestige featuring on the back. Which to me acknowledges that in britain. We are all equal. Regardleas of birth

I think slavery and owning slaves is wrong and I am very upset and sad that slavery even existed. It hurts my heart...I am glad that we have come as far as electing a President who has a mixed ancestry...but we have a long way to go in society.
I was raised in a family where we were taught to accept people ...if they were good people no matter their race.
I think it is awful that previous Presidents have owned slaves; I just don't understand how to them that was normal; and why would America elect such people?
I think that the different races on planet Earth are wonderful; I really like the diversity in people and there are so many interesting and good people on this planet.
I have heard that there are places that slavery still exists on Earth; I wish I had the power to stop slavery on the entire planet; I just wonder...what are the solutions?

I agree with you completely, thank you for your thread. Although I am a liberal, I find the politically correct movement offensive. If we are going to ban the Confederate flag, why not ban the American flag and corporate insignias as well for the atrocities they have committed? Your post makes a lot of sense. I am glad that there are still some sensible people around.
It doesn't make you racist, I'm not racist and I think it is a dumb idea to ban a flag and rename roads. In fact, I think it is a fad that people fall into because they are afraid of what others will think of them if they don't.

Great thread, very thought provoking. Given the facts as outlined, now we should stop dealing with american currency that details slave owners until it is banned like your confederate flag.
Portraits of former presidential slave owners should be taken down along with the flag. Famous americans whether inventors, politicians or people of prominence who dealt with slavery should be stricken from the history books. Yeah, lets go on a witch hunt...again...
After the clean up there'll be no 'dark' history for american folks. Same here in Aussie.
Well put together iDope. I like your style and after reading there are still those that really don't get it.
