Singer Macy Gray finds US Flag racist. The white stripes don't represent the skin colors of America. Yes. This is real.

The white stripes on our flag are generally meant to symbolize purity and innocence. I have been unable to find any source suggesting it is related to the skin color of our founding fathers or anyone else's skin color. Not sure where she's coming up with her stance.

Oh, also, there needs to be 52 stars. One for DC and one for PR. According to her, their statehoods are being repressed due to the likelihood their legislative representatives would be black and Hispanic respectively.

Yet another mouthpiece pushing for the fall of the American empire.

Why stop at 52 , is she racist against Pacific Islanders? If we are going to go the route she wants why not 54 for American Samoa and Guam?

Another mentally incompetent D-list “celebrity” that apparently has a platform to spread her insanity from.
I’ve never heard of this idiot before I saw this story the other day.
Nobody is changing the American flag because this nitwit says she doesn’t like it.

I can't wait for them to complain about white socks and underwear. Quite frankly, maybe the complainers shouldn't wear white clothing, drive white cars or wear white hats. Because they would then be....hypocrites.

Are they going to request a change to the reference 'white diamonds'?

Don’t know what's more insane, the fact that she is serious about it, or the fact that there’s people out there who take her serious.

Nothing is holy these days anymore, everything needs to change regardless what or why. Only progress matters.

Or virtue signalling a law and thus creating problems that need to be solved and addressed.

Ummm…I’m sure she’d rather it were black and blue…and red all over…

With the blood of the white oppressor…


In the immortalized paraphrased words of Forrest Gump…”stupid is as”…stupid is…

She hasn't been relevant in 20+ years, I don't know why anyone would take her seriously or care what she has to say.

That should go for any "celebrity" with a dumbass opinion.
Don't amplify their asinine ramblings.

She could always make her own flag.

It could have a big 1 on it to represent the hit she once had that I can't remember the name of.

And no stars.

This is the insanity that happens when you boil everything down to skin color.

Well, she couldn't churn out any decent music that didn't sound like she'd just rolled out of bed, so I see she's trying her hand at attempting to sound enlightened & superior.
















She failed at that, too.


I think these try-hard stances are the hallmarks of dead-end lives fully realized after those who create their own dull, lackluster pits realize they don't have # going for them. Macy may have some money, but I bet her life's pretty empty & stagnant on a day-to-day basis. Ergo, dead-end.

At the risk of a post yank and paddle, that seriously begs the question of what they plan on changing the slang name "white lines" to XD



Dammit, now I need to go dig up some Duran Duran (it's a good cover, sue me)

Meg White has more talent in her cute little drumming pinky than Macy has ever had in her career.

I didn't find the content of the article worth reading so I may be slightly off topic.

I've never even heard of this woman before. All I can say is that I like our flag a lot and will be very bitter if they make drastic changes to it.

Many African flags have white in them. Niger, Cote D'Ivoire, Nigeria, Sudan, and Sierra Leone just to name five.

And if you multiply 5 times 4 you get exactly how many years ago Macy Gray produced a semi-hit single.

The singer argued that a new flag including stars and stripes that were "OFF-white" would be "the colors of ALL of us — your skin tone and mine — like the melanin scale"

If that's what she's going by, since when are white people the literal shade of bright white found on the US flag? It doesn't match any actual skin colour already....


and then offered a sketch of a proposed flag design that included stars of varying tones.


That would look so #ing stupid.

The entire suggestion and reasoning behind it is just #ing stupid.

Her mental imbecility is even farther off the rails if she is offering a sketch on what she thinks the flag should look like.

This means it wasn’t just a stupid comment during an interview, it means she has thought of this for some time.

She should use her head as a #ing door jamb.

It's every bit as stupid and cringe-worthy as it sounds. TWO YEAR OLD KIDS do better work with finger paint and their food.

Either avert your eyes for protective purposes, or prepare to pee your pants laughing uncontrollably:

I had to link-hop through the article's hotlinks to find that eyesore. Even YAHOO wouldn't put in in theirs, which says something there.
