If you are living in the western world...then I highly do not reccommend a swaztika tattoo, If you must have a Native American or buddhist tattoo...there are many others to choose from.

If you MUST have a swaztika...just know there will be consequences bc of the horrible connotations...that is all

I say we demand all buddhist temples get renovated and torn down. They have swastikas everywhere. In fact ban anything vedic.


I say we do NOT demand to get them renovated just bc there is a swaztika, chill out

What if to them its more like a regional flag than a racist symbol and not ignorant. And they are just saying we are southerners.

What about buddhist art for sale. I often see buddhist statues with swastikas on them being sold in western society. Right there on the shelves next to other various statues. Should they be told not to but their buddha statue on sale next to the jesus statue or the madonna statue cause it offends ignorant western sensibilities.

And chilling out would be nice but alas i live in los angeles where its in the upper 80s and humid and im stuck in my car. But i do advise that you should chill out. It is good advice after all.

I think you would be able to tell the difference between buddhist art and nazi hatred.

More power to the buddhist if they give a better connotation to the swastika (i study buddhism).

but I just do not reccommend getting it tattooed on you with today's connotation, same with rebel flag. Perhaps that will change in 20 yrs, that would be nice.

However, the rebel flag was created out of racism, the swaztika was just chosen to be a symbol of hatred by the nazi's.

They are a tad bit different in that sense.

Well, with this day and age, its just not smart to get a swastica or rebel flag tattoo or go waving those flags along in public.

I know they have dual meanings, but we live in the here and now and they both have very negative connotations...unfortunately.

So, I take it you like the 'here and now'?

Personally, I think it sucks. We can do better.

Wrong. The Confederate Battlejack (aka the 'Rebel Flag') was created in opposition to an oppressive government.

You sound like you were educated by Northern lies.

Having lived in both the North (almost all my life in MA) and the South (8 years in Charleston) I can tell you first hand you should not believe most of the garbage you have been taught. The war had much less to do with racism than you have been taught, and the flag that was created was the stars and bars, not the flag we talk about today.

Wow. Is this a common thing in Dixieland? I saw on the news that cities are removing statues and other Confederate symbols that are now considered offensive by some.

I don't know what is going on but things seem to be rapidly spiraling out of control.

How can a 43 year old woman become so upset by a bumper sticker? She needs to seek help!


I suppose to some it implies an agreement with and maybe love of the days when a person has held a slave, their families sold like cattle and legal to beat a slave as you please. If this was your Family history maybe you would feel differently.

Not all Southerners feel this flag represents them. But the ones who lost the war and wish for the old days do.

im not trying to rewrite yours or mine or anyone's history. The confederacy came up with the flag, what did the confederacy fight for? Wasnt it slavery?

i have always thought the flag looked cool. even when i was a kid in the early '70's i liked the look of the confederate flag.
i'm not a southerner, nor am i white. but i can appreciate the artistic value of the flag. honestly it's bad @$$.

Man, them days of beating up spitting hippies must have been sweet..


You appear to have missed the point.
The days when people were held accountable for their own stupid actions are long gone.
No longer can you just take some hippie(SJW) aside when they say they wanna tussle. They will spew all manor of hate while saying you are the violent hateful one. Shout "assault" when you try and get their air-horn out of your ear. I see no difference between the hippies of the 60's and the SJW's of today. Accept words like "baby killer" and "racist" can be attributed to the SJW's more than the people they oppose now...
Funny that.

Sheer ignorance.The original confederate flag was the stars and bars. So no, it did not come up with the flag. And no, they did not fight for slavery, technically they did not fight for anything, they did not fight, they just left the Union. The north then invaded (rightfully so), and many southerners who fought did so to protect their homes and it had literally nothing to do with slavery for them.

The North did not invade to end slavery either, the invaded to keep the Union whole.

You are fairly ignorant of most of what actually happen, much like I was after my Northern biased education.

yes, if you are in the majority...you cannot claim racism.

Racism is discrimination or hate towards a minority.

Also, for example...a white cannot be racist towards another white, etc.

Its just a simple matter of knowing exactly what it is. What the ladies did with you and the chicken was just extremely disrespectful and dumb.

when i think of reverse racism i think of snowflakes...its just not a thing, whites were never widely oppressed.

Whities...be glad you cannot be a victim of racism, be happy that you nor your white ancestors never had to experience being oppressed bc ofskin color and quit being lilly white snowflakes claiming reverse racism.


HAHA really?? Only races other than whites can experience racism?? What a moronic statement!!! I guess only black people were slave too?

Everything you just state was idiotic and misinformed...Educate yourself please. Racism is hate against any race....

are you trying to rewrite the history of the civil war? It was all about slavery. The north was against it, the south wanted to keep it.

The confederacy (southern army) came up with about 4 designs for their flag, the rebel flag was one of them, i got this from wiki.

Twist?? I just posted the definition.....I believe you are the one twisting my friend...I don't see anything in the "definition" of racism about it being discrimination against minorities....Do you just rewrite dictionaries to fit your SJW left agenda??

Typical delusional Lefty who knows absolutely nothing.......Nice try pumpkin....
