Colleges are running entire courses entitled “the problem with whiteness”, some colleges are even trying to make these course mandatory. Anti-white racism is rampant, and way more socially acceptable than anti-black racism.

Exactly. University of Kansas is even offering an "Angry White Male Studies" class this fall. Didn't see any of their other classes singling out a specific demographic. Wonder why? Agenda much?

Except those that waved the Gadsden flag since 2008, have been largely racist, if not xenophobic. The use was by Zeb Culter types. There was a racist contingent of the TEA Party Movement. The TEA Party used this flag during their protests against Obama. I thought this was known.

Lefties hate our current flag but they haven’t come out of the closet entirely on that one yet. It wont stop there either.

Protesting Obama doesn’t make you racist, wanting a secure border(something that Obama campaigned on, something that the unions have been clamoring for for decades)doesn’t make you a racist. You’re going to dilute the word to the point where it’s meaningless.

Because a few idiots use symbols of this country, it should be construed that anyone using it is a racist? Is this the argument you are making? "Largely" is highly incorrect.

So you’re going to just let them have it? What if they start carrying the rainbow flag around? Will you abandon that to them?

Well, when I was in college, I worked part time at one of those "all girls" hair salon near the Marine Corps base in California. lol

I saw quite a few Marines worn that shirt and they even gave me one as a gift, along with the "Hot Girls Date A Marine" t shirt. =)

People think too much, always look for something that is not there. So pathetic.

Learn something about the history of that flag, knowledge is power. Try Yoga and try to relax.

I don't think it was a few idiots. I know that there are non-racist TEA Party members but I think a good number were. To act like there wasn't more than "a few idiots" using the symbol, is ignorant. It is like saying the Rebel flag wasn't used as antagonizing for African-Americans, especially in the last 10 years.

How can advocating for freedom, limited government make you racist? The greatest opporessor in human history, including racial oppression, has been government. Its not my fault if black people are unaware of what the flag means. Maybe we should do a better job of teaching kids history in school.
