    Da goal post move as usual :rofl:

    Now the pivot to it "normalize" it, but you original statement was.......

    First it was became aware, now it is normalizing it.

    We are not gonna do this anyway. You said something silly now you want and pivot to defend it. Usual Ninja, and I'm in no mood to play chase the buffoonery this holiday season.

    Be blessed Edwin.

    to become normalized, it has to be detached from its original meaning, and introduced to a whole new audience... it would behoove da process of disconnection by introducing da flag to a whole swath of unassuming people, and that's exactly what Duke's of Hazzard did.

    I can believe that there is a possibility some little kid saw that show at its height in popularity and that was the first time they saw the confederate flag.

    Im not saying they knew what it was or it influenced them to have a certain mindset but It could have been seen before it was tought in school or anywhere else.

    Now In terms of the average American being aware probably not. DEFINITELY not where I'm from. **** JUST got taken down from our state capital. Also...and im curious about this...there was a clothing brand that was really popular when I was a kid that displayed it prominently. ..thats the first time I saw it. I wonder if yall had that where you live. I can't remember the name.

    Da ninja really craves attention. Dude needs to find a hobby or a woman, pet, something that will give him attention.

    Fool did this exact same thing in the "Thoughts on the Confederate Flag" thread from 2015

    https://niketalk.com/threads/thoughts-on-the-confederate-flag.629673/page-23

    Surprised he hasn't posted images of Southern rappers wearing the flag, wrestlers (OG Big Boss Man), Ruffneck from Def Jam Vendetta or some other dumb deflection.

    Y'all just gotta ignore the ignorance. He gets off on trolling and hijacking threads. He's way too old to still be acting like this.
    :smh:

    I’m really tired of the lack of common sense we show. Statues are of people that were on the losing side of a war based (at least in perception) on the issue of slavery. I’m very anti PC but it’s bogus to have these up. Same way calling a team the Cleveland Indians is messed up. Got little faith in our society if we can’t right these sort of outright displays of ignorance without a lot of hoopla.
