I'd be rude to someone holding a flag of hatred as well.
Think it will rub off?

What was that man doing, by saluting a flag, to deserve what he got?

It didnt. You didnt.
The flag does. Because it stands for hate and racism. Despite the recent attempt at revisionist history. It MAY not have stood for hate in the 1860's.. I dunno I wasnt there. But I know what it stood for in the 20th and now the 21st century. and thats what I care about.
I bring hate? No. I bring logic. And logic dictates I will not sit idly by when someone shoves the confederate flag of hate in my face. I dont bring violence. I bring words. Would I act like the people in the video? No. Probably not. But Id certainly attempt at digging into his brain and list of off some facts he may or may not be aware of.
The debate about Confederate statues in Dallas intensified on Monday as a group made up of predominantly African Americans called for the monuments to remain standing.
Several cities across America have now begun to remove or talk about removing Confederate markers shortly after a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville turned deadly.
Former city council member Sandra Crenshaw thinks removing the statues won’t help.
“I’m not intimidated by Robert E. Lee’s statue. I’m not intimidated by it. It doesn’t scare me,” said Crenshaw. “We don’t want America to think that all African Americans are supportive of this.”
Crenshaw, along with some Buffalo Solider historians and Sons of Confederate Veterans are coming together to help protect the Confederate markers from toppling over in Dallas.
They feel the monuments, like the Freedman’s Cemetery, tell an important story and help heal racial wounds.
