It was flown during a time when Black people were oppressed and the South fought to further that oppression. Now, to see that same flag flying of all places in a football game(I am from MS, speaking on OLE Miss) is appalling. Considering that at least 80% to 90% of its football team is Black. If Black people opressed white people in such a manner and then had the African flag flying high, dont tell me there would not be any resentment. It's sickening to see that damn flag. Hell, I might as well start shuffling my feet and say suh! as long as that damn flag is flying. Were not going to talk about personal expression using that damn thing. That's another topic.
