    Do you know where history is conserved? In museums and history books. All this talk about preserving it by keeping the symbols of one of the greatest proponents of American division in public places is moot.

    scrubbing history is dumb yet you do the same when topics of your lineage comes into play. especially when it concerns the african side of your roots. You pick and choose where you want to argue. so it's funny to see you take this side of the argument, however, i am in no way surprised. your track record is beyond tarnished. so i guess it's expected.

    00A4CE4A-B0B6-4B77-9DAB-5F0BBEEDF027.jpeg Should us black folks really give a damn?

    For centuries we have had non black cultures try and erase our presence history culture and artifacts.

    I mean come one you gotta be a straight hater to do stuff like this.
    We are surrounded by haters who do stuff like this!

    I always hated the "the confederate flag isn't about racism" arguments.

    We all know one of the biggest points of contention that the south had. Either you were down with it, or you are okay with something that abhorrent that you would still wave that flag. Either way, **** you basically.

    ayo my man, you doing alot of gum flappin when u need to do more listening.

    this energy u giving off for no reason based on a assessment i made from a television show viewed by 21+ million people which you can make da case, exposed da Confederate flag for da 1st time in a innocuous way SHOULD be...

    as a New Yorker, da 1st time i ever seen that Flag was on da roof of a Orange Charger, and Millions of other folks in my demographic have that same shared experience, so im factoring in that factoid.

    that's all im saying...all that other ish u can keep to urself b.

    uhh yeah...even Ebro, da outspoken radio host on black issues on hot 97 shared similar sentiments.

    what you think, large swaths of people of color in da 80's weren't watching Duke's of Hazzard by da millions and being exposed to it for da 1st time?

    :lol: surely u can't be this naive....we're talking pre internet, pre cable, entertainment landscape...
