Reconstruction 2.0

Thursday, June 25th, 2015

I would never display Robert E. Lee’s Confederate battle flag. I’m a Union guy. I’m glad the Union won. But I love the South. These days there is less racism down here than there is up North. It is less segregated and less uptight about race. There is a big migration of black folks moving back South from the North.

You want to take down the flag at the Civil War memorial on the South Carolina capitol grounds, fine. I don’t really care, one way or the other. But now all confederate flag stuff has been removed from Walmart, Amazon, eBay, and everywhere else. Apple has removed all Civil War games from the App Store. There’s talk of destroying all the statues of Confederate generals. People want to ban Gone with the Wind and the Dukes of Hazzard.

This is insane.
