I mean, at least I knew immediately that he was a racist?
Least he knew immediately you’re a prejudiced uppity bitch too
Hi, I’m also southern. So, I’m pretty familiar with the nonsense arguments about why the confederate flag isn’t actually symbol of racism. But, it is. It’s a symbol of the war for slavery. The symbol of a war to fight for the right to own humans.
I studied US history, particularly the effects of the civil war on the west. So, I’m aware that when you first start learning about the civil war, it seems like it’s just a war about slavery. But then the more you learn that it’s about state’s rights. But then, when you learn even more you realize that it really is just a war about slavery .
I am a proud southerner. I love the people, and the diversity, and the weather, and the food, and the music, and the manners, and the land. I do not now, and will never apologize to assholes who think that the stars and bars are about treason and rebellion. You know it isn’t that simple. I know it isn’t that simple. The neo-nazis who fly the confederate flag in Europe because Swastikas are illegal sure as hell know it isn’t that simple.
Fuck yes I am an uppity bitch. And I’m god damn proud of it. And I wake up every day and try to be better than the people I am descended from who told themselves that the ownership of other humans was acceptable. We live in a society that systematically oppresses black people to this day. I don’t care how much you like the idea of the rebel yell, you’re still a racist for supporting the continued use of the stars and bars.
I don’t think it needs to be illegal, I just think that people who display it need to realize that if they choose to use their freedom of speech to fly that flag, the rest of us get to use our freedom of speech to call you out.
ahhhh the classic “well YOU are the prejudiced one for judging a person solely because they use racist paraphernalia!” defense. With a bonus “uppity”!
remember guys: this is an extreme example, but women don’t owe you shit. She can decide she doesn’t like you because you’re too short or because your teeth are crooked. She never has to be nice to you or give you a chance to explain.
But when you wear a confederate flag, well that’s sending a message. And it shouldn’t be a surprise when women choose to reject it. And you.
(I just noticed he’s from St. Louis. With everything going on there right now, what a choice to go with the Confederate Flag).Source: okcreepsters
