[quote]1) Race Relations - No entity will ever legislate better race relations. How a person views his/her fellow man is personal.

[quote]You're changing the culture. Either that's an argument that is going to intuitively resonate w/ you or it's one that I honestly don't have the time or motivation to explain.

[quote]Well, the underlying problem is hate and hatred for an entire race of people. To many, the flag is a symbol of that same hatred, and it's displayed on the grounds of State House, in the same state where the killing occurred. How can we expect to have an honest discussion about hatred, in a st...

re: Will removing all these symbols rectify what caused the SC shooting? - Alahunter
This thread wasn't made with the intention to become a flag/not flag issue. I wanted folks to think for a minute, beyond the media narrative and the grandstanding of politicians, as though that will fix the problem. It doesn't even put a band aid on it. I'm saddened as a citizen, to see so much argu...

Cynicism =/= despair. In fact, it's kinda enlightening and gives one a sense of being able to move away from the emotional attachment to fruitless solutions to hard problems and address things which can be controlled and changed. ...

[quote]The flag movement is just people reacting to people getting mowed down in a church because of hatred. Hatred is an emotion, an idea that you can't directly address.
