American Flag

: May 30, 2018

In 1776 the American flag might have stood for independence, self-determination and rebellion as far as White people are concerned. It did not mean those things to Indians or Slaves.

Today the American flag stands for corporate greed, the Israel lobby, imperialistic foreign policy, degeneracy, hypocrisy and opposition to free speech.

I do not fly or salute the flag.  In 1776 I would likely have been moved by the flag, but at the same time I would have expressed my understanding and sympathy for Blacks and Indians.
