- Opposing the pedestrianisation of Norwich city centre!!!!
i may have this wrong as i don't live in the area but i think its a ridiculous thing from the outside.
Deal with the gun problem, or deal with the racist issue first....the flag just seems like some small compromise to lessen attacking the gun situation or else just a hopeful win for the PC brigade.
it won't solve much, it won't do much it'll probably make things more difficult with the white racist lot.....just is America dodging the real issues.
its also ironic they would rather the stars and stripes for their equality, a flag flown when they attacked the indian, the asian and the mexican populations in history.
Our position is thoroughly identified with the institution of slavery-- the greatest material interest of the world. Its labor supplies the product which constitutes by far the largest and most important portions of commerce of the earth. These products are peculiar to the climate verging on the tropical regions, and by an imperious law of nature, none but the black race can bear exposure to the tropical sun. These products have become necessities of the world, and a blow at slavery is a blow at commerce and civilization. That blow has been long aimed at the institution, and was at the point of reaching its consummation. There was no choice left us but submission to the mandates of abolition, or a dissolution of the Union, whose principles had been subverted to work out our ruin. That we do not overstate the dangers to our institution, a reference to a few facts will sufficiently prove.
In all the non-slave-holding States, in violation of that good faith and comity which should exist between entirely distinct nations, the people have formed themselves into a great sectional party, now strong enough in numbers to control the affairs of each of those States, based upon an unnatural feeling of hostility to these Southern States and their beneficent and patriarchal system of African slavery, proclaiming the debasing doctrine of equality of all men, irrespective of race or color-- a doctrine at war with nature, in opposition to the experience of mankind, and in violation of the plainest revelations of Divine Law. They demand the abolition of negro slavery throughout the confederacy, the recognition of political equality between the white and negro races, and avow their determination to press on their crusade against us, so long as a negro slave remains in these States.
How does the U.S. flag stand with Native American? maybe it's time to design a new flag?
Yeah I mentioned the Union Jack in my earlier post, the same post where I also made clear my opposition to it being flown on government buildings. Putting it on a par with the Swastika though is something I don't agree. Slavery was still widespread in the 1860's, even in colonies of European countries that had abolished it, the systematic extermination of millions of people is a different kettle of fish I'd say.
