NAACP Branch Readies for Confederate Flag Fight

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.

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.

“The concern is there,” Toomer said of Confederate flags. She declined to comment further before the meeting.

But officials at NASCAR and the raceway say there’s little they can do to prevent spectators from displaying or waving the Confederate flag.

NASCAR spokesman Ramsey Poston told that NASCAR’s “longstanding policy” prohibits displays of the Confederate flag on its cars, uniforms, licensed merchandise or in advertisements.

NAACP Branch Readies for Confederate Flag Fight

I have a very special, and personal message for ALL the members of the NAACP, La Raza, ACORN and any other bunch of moonbats that have a problem with the Flag of the Confederacy, and it’s very similar to the message I am sending to any and all that are offended by the United States flag.

You can all, each and every one of you, collectively or individually, KISS MY AMERICAN REBEL ASS!

Now you people have something else to be offended over!

    The NAACP saying they will boycott a NASCAR race will ensure an overflowing capacity crowd. Every red blooded American Redneck will make an extra effort to be there. I’m not a NASCAR fan but if they keep the Confederate Battle Flag flying, I just may become one.

    To many, it’s just a flag…

    To many, it’s offensive…

    I am NOT one of those people. That flag represents one of the most important parts of American history and it is the flag of my forefathers.

    I can’t speak for ALL NASCAR fans but I am betting that if NASCAR does acquiesce to the demands of the NAACP, then NASCAR had best be prepared to market their sport on BET, Black Entertainment Network, because there are thousands upon thousands of fans that will abandon NASCAR and finally see the management OF the NASCAR activities for exactly what it is, a money making business that is trying to be everything to everyone. You can’t DO that, the GOP is living proof!

    As the saying goes, dance with the one that brung ya!!

    I was 13 years old before I learned Damn and Yankee were 2 separate words. They don’t like the flag? Bugger them sideways. Like Vincent said, don’t like it? Leave!

    If they are truly going to boycott the race, I think they should pass out little confederate hand flags to everyone attending, and wave them with
    an “in your face ” attitude.Be dammm this frikken PC bullshit. We wasn’t their slavemasters, nor were they slaves, so get the fuck over it.

    cmblake6, I have lived in Texas for MANY years, my kids are grown and they still think f*ckingmexican IS all one word! :P

    I was raised in TEXAS, born in Portsmouth VA as a Navy baby that cost $5.25 in 1962…from 18mo to 26 yrs THANK GOD I WAS A TEXAN LOL!

    My father told me that due to his military comittments, I did a stint at a Biloxi MS military base where he left VA when I was 9 days old! I was adopted by a great uncle at 18mos…but I have a GREAT relationship with my father today!

    But Stars & Bars have been a part of MY HISTORY from WAY back since my Daddy that raised me was born in 1898! I am LUCKY to have had TWO fathers…both KNEW RIGHT and RED…however it might be they came to teach me that…One was an “old school Democrat…when Democrats WERE Republicans at one point”…and one was a Rebel and RED from Day One :)

    Life happens, and I ended up in Nevada at age 26, then to Mississippi for 4 years, and back to NV in ’96…still now in Reno at age 46. In Mississippi…CONFEDERATE PRIDE AND SHOW is HUGE there!

    Beauvoir is the Confederate mansion on Hwy 90 through the MS corridor that belonged to Jefferson Davis…the ONLY President of the Confederacy!

    My “avatar”…my photo on Blogs, Facebook, etc…is a face shot cropped down…but THAT PHOTO was taken in the “Arlington Cemetery” of the Confederates at Beauvoir in MS!

    At Beauvoir on the massive grounds of that incredible place (house is smaller than one might think in “today’s” vision of mansion, although it housed the ONE Confederate President in his later years), is the TRUE “Arlington Cemetery” of Confederates. There is even a tomb.

    My “avatar” is from a picture I took when I took my husband to that place AND in that cemetery, but I have another photo that I took sitting upon the tomb of the “unknown soldier”…there IS one at Beauvoir… a tomb of the “Unknown Confederate Soldier” at that place, amongst the MANY LOTS of Confederate soldiers that were buried on the grounds of Beauvoir.

    When I came “back home” to Reno, and was showing my family our photos from a great trip…my son that’s 20 today…YELLED at me THEN…with my Conservative and Confederate beliefs…said to me (while he was 3 months old when leaving Texas, and only 6 years old when leaving Mississippi)…said “HOW DARE I” SIT on the tomb of the “Unknown Confederate Soldier”! You can STAND in front of it he said…but to SIT ON IT? MOM? (Deep South, tombs are above ground not level with ground due to water levels) was disrespectful!

    Stars & Bars flow through a lot of folks blood…doesn’t even matter if you live in that place or if you JUST BELIEVE in that place. I’ve BEEN THERE in that place where they put the Confederate soldiers to rest…there’s an air there…there’s a sacredness there, and there is HISTORY there that consumes you if you walk the grounds of Beauvoir in Mississippi.

    AND…I KNOW…that whatever you might think about our past Civil War…reasons past that caused it…TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION…back WAY before Beauvoir and the Civil War caused Boston Tea Party…there WAS an American Revolution BEFORE the Civil War…AND…if you REALLY study…the Civil War was represented to be a WAR against slavery…not all so! The Civil War was about many things…

    MANY “slaves” around good Conservative folk back then BEGGED to stay after emancipation. MORE slaves than not…had it really GOOD…and it’s a SHAME that SLAVE was the word for them, it was MORE like happy employees for a LOT of farm or plantation owners!

    Not so much unlike regular employees of today! MY FAMILY history teaches me that even back as far as the “slavery days”… their “slaves” were treated VERY KINDLY! They were given homes built on farm land, their kids were taught in “our” schools (maybe one or two room school houses), but my folks taught me that they were workers that dedicated their time and effort into a farm business into which we just all hoped we could keep it going!

    I have OLD pictures from many years gone by where blacks & whites lived together in harmony…maybe they didn’t have a LOT, but they had each other and the efforts of all to come to a common good…scraping dirt to have cotton plants to grow? They ALL shared in ALL that they had!

    I KNOW this from my “history”…not all “slaves” THOUGHT they were “slaves”…MANY thought they were FORTUNATE enough to just live together with folks that provided them with housing, full reign to ANYTHING that the rest of “us” had, and we all just lived as happily ever after as the next guy did!

    MY FOLKS in MY TEXAS NEVER had “slaves”…they just had partners in trying to get by to get by…plain & simple…so I think from those stories and that “raisin”…I AM NOT A RACIST! I don’t see color in good people…I see good or bad, NEVER COLOR or RACE!

    Sorry USA…your “idea” of slavery wasn’t ALWAYS TRUE! Yep…some slaves were horrifically treated BAD! But NOT all of them were…and those of us in TX, and other states DIDN’T TREAT them horribly…MANY “slaves” BEGGED to not go when they were “freed”… Media was BAD even BACK THEN!

    I DON’T LIKE IT! I never wanted to see it…but my friends…I think just from what I can judge from MY HISTORY…we’re not that far from another Revolution!

    I’ll die at my age gracefully beneath the stars & bars…with the USA flag draped on top over my ass…but I’m NOT WILLING to KEEP ON KEEPING ON letting the nutjob politicians dictate more and more spending on my part…or the lack of more and more freedoms on my part!

    I’ll tell you ALL THIS…for the SHORT time in HISTORY we had the Confederacy…you’d be BETTER OFF TODAY if we still had it!

    The Confederacy was CONservative…hence the CONprefix in the word or the belief!

    Today…CON is just that! Our Government has been CONning us for SO MANY YEARS…they don’t even TEACH real history any more!

    Agree or Disagree I don’t care…debate and fair & balanced is what has made this country great for 200+ years?? I’m just so sickened that NO STUDENT TODAY even knows about Beauvoir?

    NO STUDENT TODAY beyond Southern parents even KNOWS there WAS a Jefferson Davis…good bad or indifferent…it’s just all LEFT OUT of today’s curriculum! He never mattered…he was a blot on a bad page according to the teacher’s union… NOT NEEDED for kids to know!

    If WE Conservatives EVER forget the Stars & Bars…we’ve forgotten MOST of the Civil War…and it HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH Racism!!!!!

    The Confederate flag has just as much meaning in my family as the Stars and Stripes do. F*ck a bunch of ‘gars. By the way, the NAACP was started by white men, the vast majority of Democrats are racist assholes, and the primary reason for the war between the states was not because of slavery.

    If you consider your dumbass a hyphenated American then you ain’t. Get out of my country or STFU about it.

    If the naacp would rally together and actually do something to benefit their race they could really make a difference. But no, they sit around trying to destroy Whitey.
    Get together and clean up your damned streets. Mentor a child that doesn’t have a father, almost all of them, do something that will help them to be Productive members of society.
    Their leaders Sharkton and Crackson (Sharpton and Jackson) are the biggest jokes in the world. If there’s hate against Whitey you can bet your ass they will be involved.
    But what about all the brothers that are killing and selling drugs to each other? (Oh sorry, it’s that Beautiful Confederate Flags fault.)
    Oh no, the brothers and sisters are too hard to tame. Instead they’ll attack a Confederate Flag, and Whitey-because they have NO rights.

    Milinda777, pretty interesting about your family history. Thanks for sharing it.

    Most all Americans believe slavery in the US was caused by Whites and done by Whites. What’s never mentioned in history books is that Free Negros also owned slaves, at a higher proportion than whites in some areas. In New Orleans, 28% of Free Negros owned slaves. And remember, in Africa, the Africans were betrayed and sold to slave traders by their own tribal leaders.

    I couldn’t agree more with the comments. As a transplanted (recovering?) Yankee, I have to say this is all too much PC horse manure, with no basis in history or reality. I can never be a true “Son of the South”, since I was born in WI. May I apply for adoption?
