Does The flag make the person? Or does the person make the flag? The flag itself is just a symbol nothing more and nothing less. It does not speak but yet it says a lot..
“I pledge Allegiance to the flag
of the United States of America
and to the Republic for which it stands,
one nation under God, indivisible,
with Liberty and Justice for all.”
Hate is not something that we are born with, hate is something that is taught. Do Not get fooled by the media or our politicians. Do Not let them sugarcoat this or smoke screen the real issues. If people bring the flag down does that mean that all racism, injustice, and inequality are all gone from America?
We went from 9 people getting killed in a church to “bring the down the flag” , are you kidding me. As a minority in this Country please keep the flag up, at least If I see the flag I know to go the other way, “Thanks for the warning.”
EXTRA READ ALL ABOUT IT: CIVIL WAR IS OVER !!! The confederate flag is and was the symbol for the Democratic South and just in case you didn’t know the Democratic South didn’t want to give in to abolishing slavery so think about that for a second. Remember a Republican President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation.
January 1, 1863
President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863, as the nation approached its third year of bloody civil war. The proclamation declared “that all persons held as slaves” within the rebellious states “are, and henceforward shall be free.”
I guess the memo didn’t get around the way it was suppose too. Bringing down the flag is not the solution nor does it have any significance on all the issues when it comes to race in America. For every Hate group in America there should be 100 peaceful groups on the defense. We can’t criminalize hate groups for their thoughts but we should hold them accountable for their recruiting of one person who acts out in any wrong way. That goes in all ways white, black, orange or green.
