Obviously you're not a Metallica Fan, otherwise you wouldn't have to ask. Can't answer to the other one.

This is 100%, but your argument was about "everything", which means you are included our flawed Constitution that allowed slavery, and our founding fathers who were slave owners.

I get i shouldnt take your post literally, but you set yourself up man, LOL

Yes. What is the context that made Pratt's wearing of the shirt with the Gadsden flag on it racist? Was he seen wearing it while waving flags at a nazi rally? If so then it doesn't really matter what shirt he was wearing does it?

Bonus question: How long until Disney decides to replace him with a black transsexual person in the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise?

Why would anyone want to fly that flag to begin with? Its such an ugly flag from an aesthetic point of view and snake symbol on it looks dumb.

I like it. Especially my Naval version with the 13 red and white stripes and the stretched out snake. And I love the caption. Don't Tread On ME. Kinda says it all. Flying astern on a warship it looks massive cool. Especially if you know what it symbolizes.


You can think what you like. This is still America (for now). But for me I love the Gadsden.

It came out on the Black Album in 90, I think Damn Yankees might have been a couple years later.
