PostSubject: California Ban on Confederate Flag   Mon Sep 29, 2014 8:10 pm

Starting next year, the Confederate flag will no longer be available for sale or on display at government agencies in California. Governor Jerry Brown has signed a new law that prohibits selling or displaying items that have the flag on it.

The law was introduced by Democratic Assemblyman Isadore Hall of Compton after his mom saw a replica Confederate at the Capitol gift shop. As a person of color, Hall says the state should avoid promoting symbols of racism. The gift shop no longer displays or sells the item.

Since it applies only to formal actions of government officials, lawmakers say the new law doesn’t violate free speech. More than this, it still allowed for the flag to be displayed for educational purposes, like in museums or books.

Taking effect in January, the law also does not apply to people who protest or enter state property.

Seriously, everyone everywhere is going to be offended by something. Do we need to ban everything that hurts people's feelings? If that's the case we won't have anything left.

I agree that it should not be displayed or flown in any government office considering that it is not our National flag nor one belonging to any of our states. But I think it's dumb to prohibit it being sold for personal use. If you go down south they are displayed everywhere, yeah, I think it's tacky and outdated but it's a cultural thing and Southern people are proud of it. I don't think that it is always tied directly to racism, but unfortunately many people associate it with such and many people use it for that exact purpose.

I'm just sick of all the political correctness crap period!!!! It's a Southern flag made into a bad symbol by some pretty horrible people but it's original purpose has nothing to do with any of the symbolism people have attached to it.
