No. The LGBT community would rank higher. Blacks are actually the most looked down on group in the USA.

Just like back in 2002 the removal of the Confederate flags at the state historic sites. They flew there for years without any issues until One Term Bob took them down.

When will this stop? Hell here in Florida there are not many traces of the old Confederacy left. All across the south and border states they're being removed.

There has been a problem with it from some residents. However, there are many who never talked about it during the time when such monuments were erected. Namely, Blacks. Truth is, no one should honor Confederates. This is the USA, not the CSA. The CSA waged war against the USA. Confederates are traitors and bigots who wanted to continue the slavery institution. They don't deserve any honor. My belief is that every tribute to a Confederate needs to come down. Put the statues in museums and statue graveyards, but do not give them places of honor.

You may be getting at something there. They may in fact have overtaken blacks in the victimhood olympics.

They definitely have in this sense: while democrats pander to blacks for votes, they love it when LGBTQ's gentrify black urban neighborhoods.

Since you are now wrapping yourself in the flag, I trust you condemn the BLM and antifa protesters who burn American flags?

It is a shame people will come to an anonymous message board to write about Black people and how they feel or how bad they are when they don't have any connection with the Black community other then what some white supremacist tells them.

And Republicans pander to White conservatives. What is the difference?

Anyone or any institution that promotes the idea that the White race is superior to other groups.

I condemn anyone who burns a U.S. flag. I don't care who they are. Now I have a question for you. What is YOUR point? Why are you bringing antifa and BLM into this when I am only talking about Confederates?
