What's sad is that there were enough people who subscribed to the twisted racist ideology to divide this country and cause a civil war that claimed too many lives. Imagine where we could be if not for that brief but devastating derailment. SMDH

Way the heck over populated for one thing. But, we are making up for it now with our open borders. Slave labor is gone so now the powers that be just leave the gates wide open so they can ensure a steady flow of cheap labor. We are all pretty much slaves to the government today. As soon as they have the majority in the welfare line itís all over.

Ya, that story is crazy. Couple people making decisions thought others would “all of the sudden” be offended. No one was complaining when the same band played there before.

If the Confederates played a basketball game against the Washington Generals I wonder who would win.

Does anything really surprise anyone anymore? We live in a time where people get upset and decide to protest and instead of standing on the sidewalk they stand in front of traffic. People are stupid.

One day this world is gonna get enough stupid in it and God is gonna say "Ok I've had enough of this crap." and he'll start over.

oops, I guess I need to take a sensitivity class.

Dam Yankees.

Guess they could have invited these guys since the name is more appropriate.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, I saw an African American rapper withdraw her name from a Detroit music fest lineup after hearing that white people had to pay more for admission than blacks. Pretty cool.

It appears the reason was not based upon the bands name, but their use of the stars & bars in their logo...

A few weeks ago I heard one of their songs and my first thought was; if they were still around I can only imagine how many people would be offended. I had no idea they were still performing until I heard this story.

This is not surprising. The band never should have been paid for this appearance. The promoter is an asshat for thinking this would just smooth over and happen.

To be fair, she's half White. Does that make her an AfricanAmericanEuropeanAmerican?

When the borders are open people come and go. Make it hard to cross and they come and stay.
