This is a bunch of loud mouths on the Right who are using this event to froth up the fear of change in Conservatives. By their very nature, Conservatives are at best critics of change and at worst fearful of it. Fox News is trying to paint the Confederate flag as another unspoken symbol of a bygone era that panders to someone's feelings of nostalgia like yesterday was better than today. This narrative that world is getting worse and worse every day and you are the victim of a world that wants to rip your values, your way of life, your sense of being and community away from you is just a political and media fear tactic. People pay more attention to you when they are scared and perceive you to have a solution.

Reality is most people seeing that, even on Fox News don't really care that much about the flag itself or it's symbolism. I'm not a big believer in the counter-narrative of white people as an organized group of people trying to keep people of color down.

As people are learning the story behind it, white and black alike are abhorred by the flag. This is a story about society getting better and abandoning a symbol of hatred. For every action there is going to be a reaction.

Fox News and Bill O'Reilly are in the business of spurring the reaction and profiting off the energy of conservative trepidation. They want people to keep watching Fox News because they are scared the world is changing. Fox News doesn't really care about the flag. Bill O'Reilly is smart enough to know that he's on the wrong side of history with this. It's why he launches into other talking points about black culture.

At the end of the day, it's just noise from someone that quickly becoming irrelevant. This messy, awkward thing we see happening in America is the country finally waking up and really starting to deal with the issues of race in this country and we are all better for it.

It would be good if +Vice actually used a reporter that knew about gaming and eSports to "get inside the world" of gaming and eSports. According to this video, League of Legends has more players than France has people and yet +Vice can't find one person more knowledgeable than him? 10 minutes into this documentary he's bored with the actual tournament and is more interested in hooking up with cosplayers than the actual thing that he is there to cover. Great journalism +Vice. The way they highlight how the cosplayers ignore the reporter for an eSports celebrity smacks of the needless drama of reality TV.

Even though the new is nice, nothing beats timeless beauty. There are few more beautiful and timeless than a total solar eclipse.

I watch so many of your videos and I have zero idea who any of the politicians you talk about are but, I laugh so much harder watching your video than just about anything else on youtube.

This trailer looks amazingly stupid. You setup some kind of future then ignore it by focusing on two characters that are very clearly will fall in love at some point without actually showing any kind of plot other than big robots chasing (but not actually firing) and things rising ominously out of the sea but, never actually doing anything.

this is my favorite buzzfeed video by FAR. so funny.  I know that it's supposed to point out the contrast between men and women but, these women are awesome. There doesn't seem to be any drawbacks to friends who act this way. Except for the nut shots. Never OK.
