If I was a Proud German and wanted to show my pride by showing My Nazi Flag.. would that be offensive??
If So,..why? Its Just a flag and Its not like I would be trying to Offend ppl?
EDIT: I find it intriguing that 82% of you agree that the Nazi Flag would be offensive. The point of this post wa to create a different light on why the confederate flag is considered offensive. Yes I am quite aware that the extremes are different, however the concept is the exact same. Those that commented that were JEW had the exact same sentiments as blacks do towards the confederate. You have a Swastika symbol that was originally a ntaive indian and hindu simple, that hitler adapted and made famous as the "Nazi symbol". Those that disagree with the relativeness I believe MUST be confused as another member was. The CONFEDERATE REBEL FLAG is NOT the Same flag used for battle by the confederate states. the CONFEDERATE REBEL FLAG was created specifically in tennessee as a way to "REBEL" against the majority of teh other confederate states...as they had made peace with the North and decided to as well abolish slavery. The small group that DID NOT agree with the change decided to make ANOTHER flag.."the confederate rebel flag" as a way to REBEL the Change. Like Hitler, the KKK ADAPTED the flag, hence it having meaning of Hate behind it.
If you think blacks are offended by the original CONFEDERATE BATTLE FLAG then you are mis-informed and confused. its the REBEL flag that has the meaning of hate behind it..similar to how Hitler changed the meaning of the swatiska symbol.
My intent was to get you to see a DIFFERENT point of view. If you STILL dont understand than you never will. However the light has been shed.
