    That doesn't sound very Marxist to me. Now if you feel that the display of their flag proves that America is an emasculated country ripe for the picking (whatever that means), that is certainly your right but I can assure you that their are most likely others who would not agree with your premise. Personally I find that flying flags of social and economic groups does not reflect discredit upon nor hurt our country in the eyes of the world.

    Just think about it; if America had never brought slaves over to this country in the first place, we most likely wouldn't be having this conversation right now would we?

    Marxists deceive until their victory is complete. Ditto Islamists.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    Especially considering BLM activists have burned the US flag, and have not liked to stand for it, but rather to protest it.
    If there is a "war on blacks" (which there isn't), wouldn't flying a US flag and a BLM flag be contradictory? Would BLM want it's flag flown under the US flag, which it hates?

    There's an error in your way of thinking -- "America" didn't do it. The vast majority of Americans didn't own slaves, even in the south, they didn't own them.


    Only a small percentage of Americans profited from slaves.

    There is no collective guilt to be had.
    The ones who owned slaves are long dead and those who were slaves are also long dead.

    It's been over for more than a century and a half.

    There was a time when religious folk burned and drowned women accused of being witches. That too is over.

    America, as a nation, bears no collective guilt for slavery. The Civil War settled those accounts and they have no bearing on today's society.

    It's been said before, but it bears repeating. Hundreds of thousands of men gave their lives to end slavery in the U.S. I don't know any American alive today who wants to bring back slavery. You're right when you say the account was settled, and it was paid in blood.

    Were not talking about guilt here; we are talking about being factual. And the fact of the matter is if slaves were never brought to America, we wouldn't be having this conversation, but our forefathers allowed it to occur, even after we received our independence from England.
