A couple posts ago, I wrote about why I was not going to say anything about South Carolina taking down their Confederate battle flag at their capitol building. Some mistook my point and jeered at the fact that I had a good deal to say about other stuff. But the other stuff was relevant, and I did not in fact demand that South Carolina #TakeItDown — or leave it up for that matter. While I actually believe that a time might come when the flag should in fact come down, it should not be in response to hard pressure, soft logic, and a lot of yelling.
So I put together a small visual gallery to make my point that this image is not about racism simpliciter. If you will bear with these little tongue-in-cheek examples, we will reserve a more serious statement for another time.
