This only goes to show how far gone America is.

Why aren't people doing something to fight back?

Each person SHOULD be allowed to express themselves......HOWEVER the Confederate Flag has NOTHING to do with freedom of expression......but repressing the freedoms of others like Blacks, women and ANYTHING not white according to those who continue to believe that White Supremacy MUST rule!!!

I don't find that strange at all. America used to be the light of freedom for the whole world. Not only was our freedom the envy of the world, but we also used to fight to help others achieve freedom as well. The light of freedom grows dimmer, and the whole world is darker as a result.

So leave. I hear Russia, Saudi Arabia, and Iran are looking for new citizens. Don't let the door hit you on the way out.

The flag he wore was most probably NOT one of the national flags of the C.S.A., but most probably the so-called "Confederate Battle Flag", i.e. the "Stars and Bars".

Let me remind everyone that the people who fought for the C.S.A. were TRAITORS to the United States, were in open rebellion to the United States, and KILLED U.S. military personnel. All for the preservation of being allowed to "own" other human beings. These are not things one should admire.

True enough. You and your ilk are taking more freedom away in America every year. But that's not enough for you. You have to export your fascist policies to poor countries like Zimbabwe, Nigeria, and even Russia.

You are a stain on mankind generally and the American ideals particularly.

To a lot of Americans, especially blacks, the Confederate flag represents racism. So how is wearing a gay pride shirt allowing homosexuals to "walk on" people?

So is this the new right-wing normal? Defending students' right to wave the Confederate flag in school?

Tell us again about how the right wing is not racist?

The gay flag represents perversion, deviance, depravity, the blatant disregard for what is right and wrong, disrespect of time-tested traditions and family values. Shall I continue describing what the gay flag stands for?

Normal decent people are, or should be, FED UP WITH IT!!!

BINGO! And this is the exact reason those kids wore it! They were trying to show how they were offended by the gay kids wearing the gay flag so they in turn wore an offensive flag. But the gay kids were allowed to continue wearing their offensive symbol while the straight kids were punished.

Do you use a spreadsheet to keep track of all your screen names and locations? Or do you just write them on your hand in permanent ink?
