Confederate Flag is Racist according to…Creator of Confederate Flag‽

   If there was any doubt whether the Confederate Flag is evil or merely a southern cultural emblem hijacked by the klu klux klan, one only has to look at William Tappan Thompson (pictured above) who created the Stainless Banner flag (pictured below).    Image via: Georgia Info William Tappan Thompson who founded the Daily Morning News (which was later renamed the Savannah Morning News) had these fond words to say about folks blessed with extra pigment in their skin.  As a people, we are fighting to maintain the Heaven-ordained supremacy of the white man over the inferior or colored race; a white flag would thus be emblematical of our cause. […]  Such a flag…would soon take rank among the proudest ensigns of the nations, and be hailed by the civilized world as THE WHITE MAN’S FLAG. […] … As a national emblem, it is significant of our higher cause, the cause of a superior race, and a higher civilization contending against ignorance, infidelity, and barbarism. Another merit in the new flag is, that it bears no resemblance to the now infamous banner of the Yankee vandals. Although Americans are granted the right to fly any flag they choose on their own property (whether it be state, national, Nazi or Confederate), only a bigot or ignorant fool would associate themselves with this evil banner. As John Oliver from Last Week Tonight elegantly...

Is The Confederate Flag Evil‽ 

   With America still in shock after a white supremacist killed nine people in a black church (during a prayer meeting nonetheless!), debate has once again shifted on whether South Carolina should remove the rebel flag from flying over state property.  Defenders of the Confederate flag state (repeatedly) that the “stars & bars” is apart of their history (something no one disputes) & that displaying the flag is a way for them to honor their heritage.  Not suprisingly the Twitterverse destroyed that argument: Read this and tell me again how the #ConfederateFlag is not #racist. Go on. #CharlestonShooting @deray pic.twitter.com/JAJua8KW3U — Kon Karapanagiotidis (@Kon__K) June 20, 2015 @Kon__K @3ChicsPolitico @deray Or this.

No Justice, Know Peace‽ No Wrath For Dominique Strauss-Kahn

   Apparently being rich & (in)famous has its perks in the court room of “justice.” Former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn has been acquitted of aggravated pimping charges by a French court. He told the court yesterday that he participated in sex parties reminiscent of orgies in antiquity because he needed “recreational sessions” while he was busy “saving the world” from one of its worst financial crises. (Business Insider) The women participating in these “recreational sessions” were not having fun according to Business Insider, although their failure to vocally inform Strauss-Kahn that they were obviously prostitutes helped the ex-IMF chief score victory (pun not intended).   While this mockery of justice will cause furor amongst those in favor of ending the exploitation of human beings in the “sex trade,” it may motivate IMF to purge members engaging in these prostitution parties within the highest ranks—maybe… Via: @BreakingNews Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn acquitted on charges of procuring prostitutes, French court finds – @AFP http://t.co/MGLyUxhuaP — Breaking News (@BreakingNews) June 12,...
