It’s time for the Confederate Rainbow Hello Kitty Flag to make it’s reappearance.

I did the photoshop on it, based on an idea from Amory Blaine. Vicious Babushka is responsible for posting it up on twitter. So, it’s almost a collaborative effort.

Okay, than. Nice work! I mistakenly thought she made it.

As a child of segregation, I fear what the Confederate flag represents in the minds of those who revere it much more than I fear the rainbow flag. While I was growing up here in GA, whenever I saw the Confederate flag, it was a sign of white supremacy and a reminder that there were things that limited what an entire race of individuals could say/do, and it also limited the places they could work but were not welcomed as customers. The rainbow flag has never held the same meaning for me as the Confederate flag, and any republican who says it’s worse than the Confederate flag is only trying to preserve an embarrassing era in our nation’s history—an era during which many human rights abuses were committed and accepted as a normal way of life.

re: #5 majii

I agree. Its pretty disturbing.

As a anti racist and someone who is not a Southerner, I really have a hard time seeing the confederate flag as a positive symbol, especially when you consider the fact that at least one of the reasons why the south tried to brake away from the Union was the fact that they feared the loss of the right to own black people as property.

Note, should have said “own as slaves.”

Your first post wasn’t inaccurate; slaves were property. In fact, the property rights arguments that the Right made against civil rights in the sixties and Rand Paul still makes today are the same as the slaveowners made to justify secession.

Technically you’re correct, but the other way is a better writing.

I actually disagree, since the way you wrote it first was more to the point of how the South viewed them. But, since the way you prefer it is also good, & to the legal point, I won’t quibble further.
