That was just disturbing...What was the point of this?
In the US, there was a knee-jerk reaction to ban the Confederate flag due to the killing of 9 black people by an angry white man who wrote a manifesto detailing his grievances with blacks. This person had black friends.
Instead of a discussion that focuses on the issues of mental health and diffusing the causes of this rage-killing, which are some actual facts about the state of black crime rates, instead the fingers are pointed at a flag.
These same fingers will conveniently point at lowered Civics for being street racers, the Qur'an for radicalizing muslims, and guns for murders. Emotional people will react like this.
Now all I'm trying to say is, if they're trying to prevent racism and diffuse people from being angry over crime statistics and behavior witnessed that causes insane, rage-filled white men to shoot up innocent black people, look at the root causes of this angst. Blaming a flag is just as easy as blaming the Qur'an for 9/11 or NOS kits for street racing deaths.
I posted a video that now has over 250k views, read the comments for yourself:
This type of media is fueled by websites like World Star Hip Hop that propagate black stereotypes by mixing music and lowest-common-denominator fighting and sex videos into a toxic culture that creates more thugs and fuels more anti-black racism.
Why is there a national critique of the Confederate flag, yet the very website that this video is made for, surprisingly not mentioned with a "WORLD STAR!" shoutout in the video, silently continues on to program the next generation with ill behaviors?
We've all seen videos with "Allahu akbar" being shouted before something blows up, and we've all seen videos where someone gets knocked out and someone yells "WORLD STAR!". The Qur'an, Hip Hop and the Confederate flag are not to blame and banning any of the above three are wrong, however, the people using those religions, art forms, and symbols for the purpose of evil are not cast-out by the silent majority of people who peacefully enjoy those creations.
TL;DR Symbols are not the problem, it is the people associated with them that are. Banning or removing something will only make it worse.

Another thing is this:
To youth and children, you can show the Confederate flag and then spend time teaching them the history of the Civil war, the flag, and why southerners feel it is a part of their culture of patriotism that doesn't have to reflect slavery or anything negative. Children can be taught to see that it is just a piece of cloth.
Meanwhile, if little Johnny and Timmy are 14 years old and they find the video I posted up top online without supervision, all it takes is Timmy to say: "Wow look at this video bro, a NON-PC TERM just caused a white toddler's head to hit the ground, animals!" and then Johnny is going to look at that video and be shocked.
What if Johnny then surfs World Star Hip Hop for a month and witnesses this over and over with images of blacks with guns, pimping women, etc?

The secret reason behind the wars was to divide and conquer the American settlers from gaining any real freedom, specially in who controlled their money.
With the Central Bank killed off, fractional reserve banking moved like a virus through numerous state chartered banks instead causing the instability this form of economics thrives on. When people lose their homes someone else wins them for a fraction of their worth.
Depression is good news to the lender; but war causes even more debt and dependency than anything else, so if the money changers couldn't have their Central Bank with a license to print money, a war it would have to be. We can see from this quote of the then chancellor of Germany that slavery was not the only cause for the American Civil War.
"The division of the United States into federations of equal force was decided long before the Civil War by the high financial powers of Europe. These bankers were afraid that the US, if they remained as one block, and as one nation, would attain economic and financial independence, which would upset their financial domination over the world."
"If this mischievous financial policy, which has its origin in North America, shall become endurated down to a fixture, then that Government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off debts and be without debt. It will have all the money necessary to carry on its commerce. It will become prosperous without precedent in the history of the world. The brains, and wealth of all countries will go to North America. That country must be destroyed or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe."
