Political correctness. All of this is political correctness. I deplore racism. I was a racist when I joined the Air Force at 18, being a young man raised in Mobile, Alabama. However, after 30 years in the AF, I saw first hand that the black airmen were no different than me. I still hate political correctness. Any one that finds Aunt Jemima Syrup as bad needs to see a shrink. I guess Florida State will change their name to something other than the "Seminoles".

This isn't political correctness. This is a cultural revolution akin to what happened in Russia in the early 20th century. In that case, the bolsheviks led a crusade to purge the country of any semblance of cultural heritage from the Russian Empire.

In our case, it is a bunch of brain dead dolts leading a crusade to purge the United States' culture of any symbols regarding the country's early colonial heritage.

Good. The sooner people FINALLY stop celebrating and honoring literal treason the better.

Brett Favre has stated that Kaepernick will be seen as a hero for his stance, comparing him to Pat Tillman.....😞

A few years ago the state of Mississippi put the flag to a vote. If memory serves, the vote was not even close to keep it.

sports + politics = SHOULDN'T EVEN BE A THING!!!

sports needs to stick to sports and not get involved in politics or political correctness (cant' STAND that term, btw)...and vice versa. politics needs to stick to politics and not get involved in sports.

the sec commissioner has no control over, nor does he have any authority over, what a state's flag looks like. and to punish the schools in that state for something THEY can't control is absolutely asinine. how about we punish the university of florida because they share a state with a school whose mascot is an indian. that makes just as much sense as the other.

This is nonsense. Sports and politics have been entwined longer than you or I or anyone on here have been alive. If the SEC Commissioner was pledging his undying loyalty to the Confederate flag and said that he hoped all states flew it would you have an issue with it then?

My bad, I thought you meant the treason of breaking from England. Succession is not treason. It is divorce for irreconcilable differences. What is truly sad is how many college educated idiots that we have. My 6th grade BLACK teacher was my inspiration to question authority and never accept as fact, what you have not researched. She shot a lot of holes into the narrative of the unCivil War. The Yankees invaded the south.
The definition of a civil war used to be 2 or more factions fighting for control of the same government. The South just left. You lack gravitas on this subject as well. My fucking ancestors were brought as slaves to this country also and before Africans were.

When has anything remotely close to that happened? I have never once heard of anyone pledging undying support or requesting more flags. That's the hole in your point is that no one is whining about flying it more and more. The uproar comes when you start taking way people's abilities and freedoms, no matter how much you do or don't agree.
