    To deny history is to deny truth.

    I call BS. Using his analogy the old lady would keep smoking because why not? She already had cancer. The US flag also represents the goal, the trying while the Confederate flag represented and still represents the attempt to forever enshrine the ability for white people to own black people.

    I’ve also heard every single one of those argument from the white supremacists who want to keep their revisionist history.

    Very funny. Thanks for sharing. I needed a good laugh this morning. He does make several good points, one being that our country is still deeply divided over race and there is still much to be done if MLK’s dream is to be realized. If all the CBFs and all the Confederate monuments simply disappeared one night, not much would really change. Are things better than they were in the 1960s? Obviously yes. But we still have a very long way to go and as MLK observed (paraphrased), I doubt you or I will be here to see it. I have hopes that my grandchildren (ages 4 to 13) will see it and will live in a more peaceful, understanding, accommodating and accepting world.

    Somebody should point out to him, however, that the CBF was not the “Stars and Bars.”

    You can’t save something that’s bad to begin with.
