    In typical patronizing fashion, the liberals in charge of those shows usually throw in a token minority.

    Rush Limbaugh leans much to far to the left for my tastes. But I don’t consider them all as radical liberals or extremists. I consider them normal humans, making the same mistakes humans have always made throughout history. And yes, this is somewhat of an extreme position, where one accepts the follies of humanity without judging them, understanding that to make any attempt to fix what isn’t broken, (it’s just the way we work, really,) just adds to the noise level.

    After reading your “Limbaugh leans much to far to the left” comment, I read your last 10 comments under your profile.
    If you are right of Limbaugh, I certainly appreciate the tone you take compared to his.

    Only the Progressive Left still fixates on their racism. For the rest of us we have moved on and no longer practice it. Progressives might want to try that some time…

    Ah, I see you subscribe to the “privileged white guy” school of thought: “Racism doesn’t affect me, so people must just be making it up.”

    “…racism. For the rest of us we have moved on and no longer practice it”.

    I’ve lived in the South for a while now, and, for most down here, the Confederate flag does not mean the same thing to them as it does to the Black community.

    As one born in Miss., raised in Va, and traveled/lived many other spots… I agree with you M5. Where the stars and bars are concerned, for many whites, some latinos and asians, and a very few number of blacks, it has the same meaning as your team colors for a sports team, or a flag from Texas, Puerto Rico, or another state/territory. It has less meaning than the US Flag, but still represents a region and lifestyle at its best. There is a small, but often extreme minority that cherishes the Confederacy over the Union and their flags. I understand how the Southern Flag can be viewed by people who know US history from the days the first slave was sold in Jamestown through the Civil War and the Civil Rights protests and into today.
    I find a Swastika offensive and when some Japanese WW2 aircraft flew over my house a few years ago as part of an air show, I found the sight of the rising sun on their wings disconcerting. I associate a “Rebel Flag” with country music, rural life, and farm communities I’ve known. I associate Nazi Flags with hate. But I’m not black.
    All I can say is please judge the person with the flag by his behavior, not by the flag.
    Very Respectfully,

    and don’t forget sexual orientation and ableness. The combination does cover the diversity of humankind quite nicely.

    No, I subscribe to the idea the color of your skin or what your name is is irrelevant. It is fools on the left like that progenitor of the idiotic notion of “White Privilage” Tim Wise that are the bigots and racists of our time.

    I grew up in NC and have family in Alabama, Georgia, and Northern Florida, and I’m with pirate — I call BS.

    Matt, is part of what you are saying “Everyone else seems to have better things to do on Sundays than waste their time on these shows” ?

    mikefive: Except for six years in exile in order to feed my family, I have lived all of my 80 years in the South, and I can tell you, Yes it does, and you don’t have to be black, just human.

    The battle flag, flown as it was at the demonstration, and elsewhere, is to me equivalent to the swastika, and yes, I spent some time (unhappy time) in the south. On the other hand, the biggest bigots I saw when in the military were from OHIO! The first segregated drinking fountains and restrooms I saw were in 1966, after the “Act” passed: IN FLORIDA! Georgia, Mississippi, and Alabama were, for the most part, ahead of Florida back then, at least outwardly and publicly. But one of the guys in our unit did invite us to a Klan rally in Alabama, boy, glad I wasn’t a Jew or Roman Catholic!!!

    If you are trying to change the world, you are way too liberal to ever succeed at anything but doing more harm. To change reality, you have to start by accepting reality. Once you have accepted reality, you will realize that there is no means by which you can make any change that does not do harm. But trek on, Siddhartha. It is your path and you must walk it. I’ll wait for you under the Bodhi tree.
