I really wish some of my FB friends, some of whom I can now call former friends after today, would stop trying to “educate” me on the difference between the confederate flag and the confederate battle flag. They both represent a heritage of slavery and racism. I’m a history major for fuck’s sake. I know the difference, but I don’t care. One friend of mine, after posting several rant filled memes supporting the flag, went on to post another meme bitching that it was ok for everyone else but white people to show their pride in our country. I responded to her that it’s been white pride day ever since the English first established a colony in Jamestown, Virginia. She’s not my friend anymore.
