    Why is it okay to bring up the historical racial injustices to make a point but not okay to show that not all of those hardships were racially based?
    Give us an example of a historical racial injustice that was not racially based. I can tell you for a fact that baseball prior to Jackie Robinson isn't one of them.

    One will do, or more if you have.

    I stated that not all of those 'hardships' were racially based. Blacks have killed other blacks historically for reasons that had absolutely nothing to do with racial inequality and the results of those killings caused a good deal of hardship for the perpetrator, his family, as well as the family of the victim. The same applies to other black on black criminal activity that occurred back then.

    I think if you get offended so easily, you need to rethink your own standing.

    Be proud of who, what, where you are. Let others worry about themselves.

    Live and let live.

    There is a difference between objecting to something and being offended by something.

    Or are they the same to you?

    Objecting is fine, it's when you're out to take it from others because you don't agree, that's when I think it becomes on the offensive line.

    How can you have "racial injustice" that is not "racially based". If the injustice is racial, it is, by definition, racially based. The entire premise of this question makes no sense.

    No. You did not misread it. I should have explained myself better. What I should have written and was trying to convey was this:

    Why is it okay to bring up the historical racial injustices to make a point, but not okay to show that not all of their hardships were racially based?

    That was my fault! Sorry about that...

    I know you're not surprised at this. I'm not. Furthermore, I suspect there to be a renewed effort to rid the Redskins of their logo.

    With the federal judge ordering the USPTO to cancel the the Redskins trademark registration, that effort is now in full swing. The first step is to cancel the trademark registration. The next thing to happen is knock-off and counterfeit merchandise will flood the market and the Redskins will be unable to stop it. They will loose millions in merchandise and logo sales, and will eventually have no other options but to change the nickname and logo.

    Following that, we will see the Indians, the Braves, the Chiefs, the Blackhawks and every other similar team lined up in the cross-hairs for this same type of shakedown.

    As I have already said several times, the political correctness is out of control.

    Yep, but sadly, too many people are blind to the ploy. They think it's a good thing instead of what it really is - censorship.

    Our society has become a bunch of crying babies. We need to stop looking for reasons to be offended and grow up.

    The confederate battle flag was a pandoras box...and now that it has been opened in the nature that it was, it's NEVER going to close. We'll find symbol after symbol, place after place, historic fact after historic fact that will offend someone, somewhere for something...and eventually, we'll live in a place with no symbols, no history and no emotional depth at all...a stale and clinical world where people are afraid of voicing their opinions out of fear of being persecuted for it...not only from the government, but by their peers.

    Hell in a hand basket. What a shame.

    It's a sad world when everyone feels the need to be a freedom fighter for the cause they feel they are destined to fight. It's also rather ironic that kings and the like followed the same ordained paths in the past. One thing will lead to another and pretty soon it will be the dark ages all over again. Mark my words!

    Everyone has seen the flag at some point in their lives and never gave it a second thought. People only started being offended by it after this country dividing administration said they should be. A man kills people in a church and they blame a flag and a gun not the man. Then use it to push gun control. But when an illegal alien with previous arrests kills a girl in San Francisco the administration doesn't seem to care. Whether by race, income or religious beliefs this administration and the media only seem to care about dividing the country. Then while the country is debating the flag and gay marriage the TPP gets passed but since the national media is on Obama's side you won't hear about that.
    The worst part of this statement is this, The media gave this lunatic way more than his 15 minutes. That's sad but the sadder truth is this, They gave him credibility and they gave him power.
