Don't worry lib....you'll get your wish in due time. White's will be a minority soon enough. Don't start celebrating just yet..

I didnt know that was up for debate. I mean the Constitution didnt even define black people as citizens. Do you not consider that racist ?
I don't deny the racist formation of our country. However, what I don't get is why an SJW seems to single Whit America for doing this. Practically every nation was built on racism, genocide, rape, slavery, and other atrocities. Learning from the past is one thing. Not repeating it can be quite harder.

These Loons think it's still 1865, and think that the Racist and Japanese American Imprisoning FDR was a good Progressive Liberal president.

And even more unsurprisingly, they are going after a straight white male for wearing a t-shirt of the Gadsden flag. Chris Pratt, have fun dealing with your Hollyweird pals with this one.

What will the PC thought control police look to ban next by calling racist and white supremacist?
Ignore them, they are nuts.

Don't try to figure out why a Leftist SJW thinks the way they do, they're Insane Rachel Dolenzal and Illness Omar types that think Farrakhan is a good man, think that Islamist are peaceful, and burning the flag shows how much they love living in the USA Theyre Loons that are suffering from mass psychosis.

Fly whatever flag you want. Outside of a college campus or ANTIFA rally, few will even notice.

I think the idea this flag has become to mean some kind of white supremacy isn't new this year -- it's been floating around for a while.

It seems to stem from the Tea Party association with the flag........all it takes is for one one White Supremacist group to have adopted it and BAM it becomes the symbol for all white supremacists.

Kind of silly.

Maybe as a society we should put less emotional energy towards flags...and concentrate on the well being of each other.

It is ridiculous.

The flag is generally associated with Libertarians and if anyone is open border, it's Libertarians so this attack on the flag makes no sense to me.
