That’s right … the coach of the University of Alabama’s football team, Nick Saban, comes out against the display of the Confederate Battle Flag.
The same University of Alabama where there was this governor named George Wallace who tried to prevent African Americans from attending that university. Governor Wallace was fond of that flag.
Funny, isn’t it, that passionate supporters of both the University of Alabama’s football program and the Confederate flag don’t put those things together? I wonder why they don’t call for a return to the old days of an all-white football team. Even Bear Bryant thought otherwise in his own deliberate way.
But there will always be some people who put bigotry and their mindless embrace of what they pretend is “heritage” above common sens and human decency.
Like this Alabama fan:
Oh, yes, I’m sure this is all about heritage, not hate. Riiiight.
