    Default Now they're after flags at NASCAR races

    I am getting so tired of these attacks on the CS flag:

    NAACP Branch Readies for Confederate Flag Fight

    A flag fight is brewing in southern Florida.

    Members of the Miami-Dade branch of the NAACP want the Confederate flag banned from the Homestead-Miami Motor Speedway, and they will meet Thursday to decide whether to boycott a NASCAR race slated there for November.

    Full article:

    What will they want to ban next? When will it end?

    Glen,

    Are you (and the NAACP) talking about the Battle flag of the ANV?

    "Debra Toomer, the branch's chairwoman of press and publicity, said a planning session has been scheduled to decide on a course of action regarding the display of the flag at the Nov. 20-22 event, as well as its presence at city-sponsored events like last year's Veterans Day parade."





    Confederate flag may end Homestead parade
    Business leaders may end the popular 47-year-old Veterans Day parade after a furor over a Confederate flag being flown at the last parade...

    "The popular Veterans Day parade in Homestead -- one of the oldest in the county -- may be called off after a controversy erupted over the Confederate battle flag being flown last November."

    Does the NAACP have anything better to do than stir up trouble every chance they get? I wish that for once they would find another way to use the resources they have but I do not see that happening for a very long time. I wish they would put this organization out of business once and for all. I think it would help everyone if they could just disappear.

    I seem to remember Bill Cosby and several other prominent and very successful business owners making the same comment over a decade ago - all with no effect.

    Default which makes that oversize flag flying even more justified

    maybe its time to put a even bigger flag up on the highway. OR a 'Dont tread on me " flag. the more rights they try and infring upon, the more radical we should become as a people until they get it..

    Default Boycott

    I didn't realize that so many Black folks attended NASCAR events.
    Boycott away, both of you.
