GUEST,truckerdave BS: Mississippi Flag Vote (107* d) RE: BS: Mississippi Flag Vote 14 Apr 01


Screw the history of the flag. It's what it's come to stand for. Our southern heritage(i live in MS), like the black man burned at the stake on the town square? I'd say that kind of "heritage" is best forgotten. Oh, the civil war and our grand ancestors who fought and died for "states rights"? The states right to do what, exactly? To treat people like cattle, nothing wrong with that i guess. Just part of our heritage. So according to this line of thinking, germans should proudly display the swastika as a symbol of thier "heritage". Some of my ancestors were non-white and non-christian and neither group were treated well by white folks so i may look at it a bit differently than some people but change it or no change it whatever the result that's it as far as i am concerned. Unfortunately if it stays and it looks from the polls it will, one group in particular will have a collective hissy fit forever more. Let's all see if we can guess which group. I'm done now.
