Confederate Flag, Dumb, and Friends: <p><a href="http://redbloodedamerica.tumblr.com/post/122428078380/live-life-individually" class="tumblr_blog">redbloodedamerica</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://live-life-individually.tumblr.com/post/122425211511/redbloodedamerica-battle-flag-okay-i-understand" class="tumblr_blog" style="">live-life-individually</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://redbloodedamerica.tumblr.com/post/122351149930/battle-flag-okay-i-understand-where-ms-cooper-is" class="tumblr_blog" style="">redbloodedamerica</a>:</p> <blockquote><h2>Battle Flag</h2><p>Okay, I understand where Ms. Cooper is coming from on this notion that the Virginia Battle Flag represents southern pride and freedom.  She has the right to say and believe this along with carrying the flag.  I also agree with her reasoning behind it this.</p><p>However, if I had the opportunity to speak to Ms. Cooper or her friends, I’d kindly suggest that she switch her flag to the United States flag.  While she is correct in what the confederate flag really represents, the majority of today’s culture regards it as a symbol of slavery and racism.  She can’t undo this by carrying it around, regardless if she is black. Therefore, we should be less divisive in our allegiances and come together under our nation’s flag as one.  There is nothing wrong with being prideful about southern heritage, but let’s remember the outcome of the bloody civil war.  We remained united under our nation’s founding flag.  You can still share and represent your ideas under the flag that unites us under a common banner.</p><p>I’ve also been asked if the south, or a red state like Texas, were to secede would I believe the Battle Flag to be an appropriate choice to represent our new independent state.  The answer is no.  This flag is a relic, like the Gadsden flag, that should be retired to a museum to be always remembered, but at the same time retired to history. </p></blockquote> <p>This woman is the reason why white folks think it’s ok to say n*** …because they have a “black ” friend.</p></blockquote><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="250" data-orig-width="500"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/81059c138be7d39dce99ae45cf2319a6/tumblr_inline_nqic6oQCT41r1jtxd_500.gif" data-orig-height="250" data-orig-width="500"/></figure><p>No, it is not women like this.  There are hardly any people like her.  Let’s just make that perfectly clear.</p><p>If anything gives a very few dumb white people the provocation to use that word it would probably be some of the music, black celebrities, and others in pop culture media that throw it around so casually as if there is nothing wrong with the term.  Of course some unwillingly ignorant white kid will think it’s appropriate to use…unless of course their black friend kindly let’s them know it’s inappropriate.</p><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="176" data-orig-width="425"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/f235156bccb0da0094f4bcc48ace15ff/tumblr_inline_nqicw2b6WC1r1jtxd_500.gif" data-orig-height="176" data-orig-width="425"/></figure></blockquote>
