Can you quote me saying I equate the Confederate flag with racism?

As I stated clearly, it reminds me of high school.

The Chinese flag makes me think of many things, among them totalitarian dicatorships.

Dictatorships take hold when the rights of the People are trampled.

New York is, in my opinion, stomping on the First with their law.

There are 'fighting words' rulings the Supreme Court has upheld but most of what people say in public are just mouth noises you can ignore.


Depends on the observational distance.

Let's think about this for a moment.

A flag is a representation of something else ... like the United States or the Confederacy or Nazi Germany.

And to some extent, we can reasonably infer that those who promote those symbols or defile them are expressing their own true feelings.


What can we reasonably infer about someone who displays a confederate flag, chinese flag, american flag.. and why?

Do you think someone carrying a flag does it for exercise?

Why would you jump to my statement that carrying a Nazi flag shows true feelings ... to be feelings of racism?

There's a quote function, BTW.

Teacher teacher can I answer?

Confederate = racists
Chinese = someone who is proud of their heritage
American = racist that is too ashamed to carry the confederate one

It’s What the tv and the internet told me. Must be right.

Why would we not want to know what their intentions and beliefs are? From a practical viewpoint.

They like something about the Confederacy?

Combined with a gray uniform ... could be someone with a passion for Civil War reinactment?

Combined with a Haralson County HS jersey ... could be a loyal Rebel, yee-haw?

Combined wih the display of the Nazi flag ... could suggest a white supremacist?

Just off the top of my head ...

So you might agree that if someone is carrying a flag, they feel strongly about what it symbolizes?

Is that a stretch? Becasue thats what I said taht you seem so disturbed by.
