Re: “At last, a hopeful acknowledgment of the Confederate flag's bigotry?

OK. then no racism on the Dukes of Hazard, they had the Confederate flag there ignorantly, unaware of its history and everything. Ignorance can happen. Somebody can use the Soviet flag ignorantly, for example he likes the Russian language, so for that he could use the Soviet flag, unaware how offensive it is to people like me.

Re: “At last, a hopeful acknowledgment of the Confederate flag's bigotry?

The Sons of the Confederate Veterans must be a racist group since they use the Confederate battle flag. If I were a descendant of a Confederate veteran, I would never use this racist flag. I would not want this flag anywhere near my ancestor's grave. I could just imagine him in heaven spitting on that flag that he was forced to fight under. I have heard of the Dukes of Hazzard somewhere, if they use the flag, they must be racist. And as far as reenactors, well, they can use the flag for non-racist motives, as they are reenacting racist Confederate soldiers, just like WWII non-racist reenactors can use the racist Nazi swastika flag as they are reenacting German WWII soldiers, after all, it is just a reenactment. They can reenact lynchings, as long as the lynchings are not real, nobody gets hurt. Just for theater, for historical reenactment, just to remember history, to prevent anything similar from being repeated again. And as far as Guiyidao, I know the swastika is an ancient Asian religious symbol, which got misappropriated by the Nazis. The swastika red flag is a symbol of Nazi Germany only though. Like recently I saw a photo from Charlottesville where one man was carrying the Nazi swastika flag while others were carrying Confederate battle flags, obviously tragically ignorant racists.

Re: “Daniel Island Rep. Nancy Mace says Dem congresswomen wearing white "sets women back"

He said they let him grab their genitals because he is famous. So he is taking advantage of them thanks to his fame, they don't dare sue him because they might not be believed.
And as far as anti-Semitism, of course it is not right. That is just about the only prejudice that Trump is not guilty of. Like a biography of him quoted him as saying, blacks are lazy, he prefers men in yarmulkes.

Trump has not been tried for any of his various acts of sexual harassment, since either none of the attacks have been reported to police, or if any reported, did not result in charges. But he himself admitted grabbing the genitals of women.

The USA flag and the Christian cross are also used by groups that don't represent racism.
