Could be.
We shouldn't stereotype people.
Thats racism. (I learned that here!)

<----- black guy, loved the song. Was it cheesy? Absolutely. I mean my god was it ever cheesy.

Cheesy is not bad though. Philly B, and believe me I say this with the utmost respect, we don't all have your incredible grasp of the English language. I mean I like to call myself halfway intelligent but I am still translating this, lol. ;)

brad paisely tries to tackle issues of multivocal indexicality in post-desegregation symbolism by writing a country song about it


But seriously though, look how far we have come. Slavery and subsequently segregation does have a lasting impact on this nation. There are MANY faces of it. Shiek Zula, and Stirs are prime examples of the many faces of this issue. Neither side will be completely satisfied, the atrocities were just too horrible and lasted far too long for that. But admitting there is tension is a step toward resolving that tension. And I think that was the purpose of the song. I don't mind southern whites admitting how they feel. It doesn't make you racist to say you feel discriminated against. That doesn't mean you are being discriminated against, it just doesn't make you racists to feel that way.


And for the record, yes the flag is racist. There is no bones about. It is pure symbolism. The nation it represents doesn't exist anymore. The people who swore to it were traitors to this nation, and their motives for doing so were extremely detestable. To rep the flag is to ally yourself with the people who swore to it, or the nation it represented. Either one means that you ally yourself with the principles they championed and the ideals the flag represented. Those ideals revolve around the continuation of slavery and the willingness to die for it. That fact will not change.

Think about it, when NK is finally wiped off the map I highly doubt the new government would allow the people to rep the flag just because they miss ole Jong Il.

and even though I quoted Philly B and mentioned Sheik and Stirs, this was to no one in particular and at the same time everyone equally.

it's intentionally insanely complex... i constructed it that way to make a point. the issue that we're discussing here is at its core incredibly complex and points to questions that run much deeper than "hey that there flag means heritage now off with you carpetbaggers" or "oh i say jeeves isn't that fellow a neanderthal, imagine bearing such dixieland regalia"

debate rages heavily because standard arguments fail to address the entirety of the issue - which is why we're arguing about it on an internet forum when a country singer inadequately addressed it.
