The problem was never that the flag exist and is displayed.

The problem is that it is displayed on state property under color of law.

It can only be removed by color of law. And this is the direction it is going. This person, these people have played into the hands of pro-flag people.
as useful as the trans-gender heckler that crashed Obama's event.



Of course the state employee does his job. And I am sure he will feel much better when he gets to take it down for the final time.

have partly disagree w you.

To have to see everyday a symbol on a government building that did symbolize the Southern way of life - the system of slavery (among other things) that some people WANT TO restore _ See articles on the extreme extreme religious Right( cant think of the general term-- oh wait Christian Dominionism yeah that's one of them.

Irving like your Stars & Bars Rainbow flag Example as a different but same type of in your face officially approved --
a similar type of effrontery.

That awful to see that every day since institutional and personal rascim
still both exist in The South AND The North.

So how's that flag ban movement going? Because....

I'm in Illinois, and all of the sudden I see Confederate flags everywhere. What did you people do? I never saw those flags here, and now I see them everyday. IN ILLI-FUCKING-NOIS. America is a ridiculous place.

Can we stop overusing the word "ban", there's been no banning.

That's bullshit, IMO. Seriously, what good does that do? That sends a completely wrong message and adds nothing but negativity to the conversation. I'm not on board with that move.

Yep, can't agree with that call.

File alongside Geraldo's comments that hip hop has done more to harm African Americans than racism. Film and music isn't the enemy here.

TV Land network ? Who knows if they were planning on taking it down. Is it making money? what's the cost and ratings? I'd like to watch The Sarah Connors Terminator series. but can't find it anywhere.
