Sheeeyit...You have no idea Dude. I've been feeling more and more this way around dvdtalk lately dealing with the usual group of posters in these race themed threads. But hey...Not All Posters** though.

But in general, I think you're post is right.

Sounds like a plan. Then the relatives of the people you hurt can retaliate and whoever's left on your side can come back at them. I don't see a downside at all. As a matter of fact, when I look at the Middle East, I always say, "Man, I wish we had that over here."

Hey, maybe Whites can get 40 acres and a mule when it's all done...

Well, the reenactors aren't going to be able to get their flags from Civil War park/battlefield gift shops anymore:

The decisions of Walmart, Amazon, ebay, etc. I get. I may not agree, but it's their choice, more power to them. They aren't Civil War specialty stores. But to remove merchandise from shops on the land where the battles were actually fought just seems downright silly to me.

Did you read the explanation?

“We strive to tell the complete story of America,” National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis said in a press release. “Any stand-alone depictions of Confederate flags have no place in park stores.”

The National Park Service said it would still allow selling books and educational materials that depict the flag in historical context.

You make an interesting point. When rural, conservative whites feel their rights are being violated they grab their AR-15s and start screaming for insurrection and opening on fire on law enforcement. (See the Bundy ranch, Ruby Ridge, Branch Davidians). These people are considered patriots.

Yet we are supposed to be impressed that Martin Luther King and his peeps warbled "We Shall Overcome" while people (both civilians and cops) beat the shit out of them.

Hell, take it back to the Civil War and it was about a bunch of angry white men fighting back against a government they felt was violating their rights.

Well, I seriously doubt any of us belong to any hate groups. Just because a belief in something doesn't particularly align with your view, does not mean a person is an extremist and is out to get you.

We just simply disagree.

Thanks to the way we get our news, it's no wonder you're so paranoid about anyone other than yourself.

The fact that the National Park Service oversees the battlefields is in itself what some Southerns would call "an act of Northern aggression." The Feds control the battlefields because the Feds want to control how the battles are commemorated and don't want to leave the door open for E. Lee worshiping malcontents to celebrate the glorious South a little too much. This is how it's always been. Taking away the flag is just another step.

I didn't say I feel that way, I'm just pointing out some feel that way. I nominate your post for "dumbest" because it's a hit and run post that says nothing, offers no counter argument, and gives no indication of exactly what you don't like about my post.

Who is running?

It wasn't clear you were speaking for others. So my comment becomes theirs is the dumbest post ever should they come here and post it.

Does anybody really have to explain to you, or anybody else, how there is no issue with the Feds creating National parks within the United States?

Yeah I guess you do because that sentence makes no sense.

You dont have to be in a cross burning, Negro lynching, Confederate Flag wearing group to benefit and/or push White Supremacy.

Re: SJW, MRA, Puppies and other assorted stuff

The presence of the flag on the car was due to the fact that at that time, in the south, the flag was a common sight. Then consider that at the time of the show's original airing, the flag's presences was not a problem on a nationally televised prime time network program. I can see why many would like to "forget" that this was not the way of the world in 1980, but it's the truth. "Disappearing" the show hides the true mentality in America at that time. It's cowardly.

When I first heard that some people in the 1980s-not that long ago-outright identified as communists, it shocked the hell out of my young mind. Reading about all of the student riots in 60s and 70s or the anti-Thatcher protests in the 80s fascinates me. I grew up in the most suburban surroundings imaginable, nearly everything like that reads like science-fiction to me.

Sometime I think of a generation who marched for social change and civil rights and a generation which posts stuff on Facebook and get a little depressed. But I'm kind of glad I had my political awakening later so that I couldn't espouse values too far to one side or the other when I was younger and even more foolish than I am now.

Amos 'n' Andy was such a great show. It presented blacks as fully-realized characters, not just caricatures. The show was unfairly tagged with the 'racist' label for no reason.

I don't know if the Duke boys were racist or not. Where there ever even black characters on that show? (Not counting the two-parter where they went to Harlem and solved crimes with Scatman Crothers).
