I n the last few days i been watching the news and FaceBook post about the Confederate flag on the capitol building of South Carolina. I am someone who looks at both side of an debate or an argument before i give my side. I have been thinking about ...
You can't change history, the flag represents history (good and bad). No more than you can eliminate Nazis by banning the swastika, you cannot eliminate racism and slavery by removing the battle flag.
And yes, you read that right . I said eliminate slavery in the modern day because it has not been.
For profit Prisons with the highest incarceration rate in the world and a justice system that makes sure it is disproportionately filled with minorities. For profit prison labor forces that use those prisoners labor by bussing them out to corporations that pay a couple dollars for the labor, of which the prison and the prison labor company take the money as "service fees" leaving the prisoner effectively with nothing again. Combine that with a majority of corporations today that outsource to countries where factories are intentionally doing the same thing to their workers and even routinely exploiting twelve year old girls to sew shirts and clothes for 18 hours a day.
So here's the problem I see... The #TPP just passed in Senate while everyone has been losing their shit over a flag that represents past racism and slavery. It is no coincidence that the majority in Senate who voted Yay were Republican (Good Ol Boys).
Effectively, the slave owners laughed and gladly traded the public the flag in exchange for keeping the slaves, keeping the exploitation, and money and racism. They distracted everyone just long enough to take everything from everyone. Even the sovereignty of countries.
And we're worried about whether the Dukes of Hazzard has a battle flag on it.
We're applauding the slave owners (Wal-Mart, Corps) for surrendering the flag and keeping the exploitation and slavery. We're idiots. Plain and simple.
