All the mentioning of "White people" in your rant? Seems like you might be the racist!

So I can drive around with a mexican or syrian flag and itd be okay?


Yes, this is America. You can pretty drive around with any flag you want, except maybe an ISIS flag (cause you'd probably get killed or detained/questioned). I see Mexican flags in Mexican restaurants a lot.

Back to the OP...are you, um, serious?

I assume you live in the US, and you're angered by a flag that represents freedom, including your own?

If you're being serious, I'm seriously at a loss...


represents freedom

Did you forget about slavery? About trail of tears? It represents suppression among other things.

Did you forget about Spanish slavery?

(That would be slavery committed by the Spanish, not to the Spanish)

The spanish only enslaved those indians that didn't convert to Catholicism. They taught the indians irrigation, architecture, and many other things.

Oh, so it's ok for the Spanish to do it for their reasons, but anyone else it means everyone now is racist?

Double standards much?

Let's see a source that says Mexicans are the majority first of all, because you've provided nothing.

Second, just because when you see the American flag you think it's a racist symbol, doesn't make it so, and it doesn't mean an entire nation has to bend to your "special snowflake mentality". How about this, if you don't like that a business is flying the flag, exercise your FREEDOM to not give that business you money. Just like that business is exercising there freedom to fly the flag of the country in which they operate.

Third, if Mexico is so great and America is so evil and racist why are Mexicans coming here by the thousands every month? Maybe it's cause of those above mentioned freedoms that for some reason you no longer want people to have? I don't understand why people would flee a country, for a "better" one, and then demand that that country turn into the one they fled. And also, people fly all different flags in America because we are free to do so. I live all the way in Washington state and I see Mexican flags, Canadian flags, Russian flags, and British flags from time to time. None of them offend me because I understand nationalism, patriotism, and basic pride in your heritage. All of which you are allowed to express here in America, just like everyone else. If you don't like those freedoms, then maybe America isn't the place for you.

All that being said I am getting so tired of these snowflakes, offended by everything and can't cope with anyone having a different opinion. The irony is staggering to witness.
If the American flag is so offensive to you, then step off her soil.

They've been coming on to this land for over 13,000 years. Way before the Anglo Saxons sailed over here. Many will argue that the reason mexico is the way it is is because of the United States. Having a drug addict for a neighbor is

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

You're either being ironic or you're deluded. I'm not sure which, yet.


I'll buy the vowel "o" for 100 dollars and complete the phrase.... "Don't feed the trolls."

Where's the fun in that? It's a rainy afternoon here in Scotland. I've got to keep myself entertained somehow lol. Also, it makes good practice for real debates

Ok i'm not one that likes the symbols of nationalities but people can flag whatever they want.

But I got a question....

The Hispanic flag?? seriously?




The Hispanic flag is a white flag with three purple crosses and a rising sun. The white field/background symbolizes peace and purity. The golden Inti sun symbolizes the awakening of the new lands. The three cross pattées symbolize Christopher Columbus's three ships, the Niña, the Pinta, and the Santa María.


So offended by the Americans with their flags, lets put up some symbolism of Europeans that ruined the both of the continents in the first place...

Well that makes sense

All im saying is that the whites ( trump supporters) are using the American flag to put the "mexican" in his place. They can't wait for trump to become president so they can say hey we have these mexicans by the nuts and if they don't do what we say where going to starve them.
