Disagree. I dont care if you like or dislike any specific kind of weather. It's the bitching about it that leads you to be mocked.

That pussy couldn't even handle some sun.

I really don't care what the intended meaning of the flag is supposed to represent--to most people it is a symbol of segregation and racism.

The number of Tennesseans with Confederate battle flag license plates has reached its highest point in a decade.

Data from the Tennessee Department of Revenue shows that 3,273 of the license plates benefiting the Sons of Confederate Veterans were active at the end of the 2018 fiscal year, The Tennessean reported .

That number represents a 72 percent increase from the end of the 2015 fiscal year, when the national debate of the display of Confederate flags reached a fever pitch following the massacre of nine black worshippers slain at a church in Charleston, South Carolina.

The Tennessee plate was introduced in 2004, but data on the number of active plates isn't available until 2008.

The Tennessee division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans received around $57,700 in revenue from the plates in the 2018 fiscal year, according to the state's revenue department. Those funds help fund the chapter's ongoing legal fight against the city of Memphis over the removal of Confederate statues, division commander James Patterson said.

After the Charleston shooting, Republican Gov. Bill Haslam expressed support for discontinuing the license plates, but then later backed away from supporting Democratic legislation that would have done so.


Being a native Southerner I'm not surprised and would expect other deep south states would have similar results

While I was out riding my bike last weekend I passed a house with the Confederate flag but I'm in Washington State. What "south" are you proud about up here? And I get that people move, but I still don't understand how people are fans of losers. (Yes that's a tired argument. I don't care.)

Meh. I live in North Carolina and regularly fly flags in support of Ohio State and the Cleveland sports teams.

People move.

Pretty sure Cleveland didn't start a Civil War though. :)

It's just a weird thing to have pride in. Again, tired argument. I get that.

There has also been a couple stories about the Confederate flag the past couple weeks:

The Marines have banned public displays of the Confederate flag
https://thehill.com/policy/defense/501504-marines-ban-public-displays-of-confederate-flag

Th Mississippi Legislature might finally remove the emblem from their state flag
https://thehill.com/homenews/state-watch/501861-mississippi-lawmakers-drafting-resolution-to-take-confederate-emblem-off

While the flag no longer formally flies at any NASCAR event it is still found at many races, brought in by fans. The only black driver was asked about that.

such inside the box thinking on this one

look at 4Chan -

they took the 'OK' hand symbol and managed to change its meaning to get people to think it is a white power symbol - and then it became a white power symbol

why can't people 'change the meaning' of the flag rather than change the flag?

just adopt it as the transgender rights flag

you'll see people in SC start taking it down very fast

Is that where the phrase "Blue Nashville" comes from?

Never heard of it, but doubtful.

Also this:



There was debate at the Ohio statehouse last week about banning the sale of confederate flags ate county fairs in Ohio. Right now it's banned at the state fair, but the GOP majority legislature wouldn't allow it to happen on a county level. It's like they totally forget that Ohio sent a large amount of troops to fight for the union. And, oh yeah, Grant and Sherman were Ohio natives as well. I bet they'd love to see these guys driving around in their pickup trucks with confederate flag decals all over the place. Every now and then I'll see them up here in NEO. I can only imagine what it's like along the river.

Michigan bed & breakfast used to fly the Norwegian flag out front because the owners had Norwegian ancestory. They had to take it down because too many people thought it was a Confederate flag.
