That's my point. The word lost it's real meaning. Good for fear mongering, good for manipulation, but it doesn't have the same meaning in the 21st century, than in the past. And it's also not covering the truth. In the 21st century, it's just one commonly and wrongly used label out of the thousands, nothing more.

That's nice and all, but that's not the reality of the situation.
If a white person would go to the mall in that shirt, it wouldn't mean any of those things.
It isn't about who's wearing it - it is a known symbol of hate.
Let's not nit-pick with historical factoids - We all know what the Swastika Symbolizes. Nazism, hatred, skinheads etc...
...so to say it is OK for a hindu to wear the swastika and not a white man is blatant racist discrimination on your part.
"four Ls, Luck, Life, Liberty, and Love in Hinduism. "
: You are just arguing for the sake of it.

I'm not Hindu. Neither is the other guy who is trying to tell you what it means. But if a person of the Hindu faith wore it it would mean something different. Again, an athiest wears a cross it means... nothing. A Christian wears it and it means a lot more then nothing.
