    Why is it that Blacks think their interpretation of a word or symbol is the only one that exists. First a lynching was not done just to blacks. Second a noose is not racist, as it was not a means of lynching just black people. Third the Confederate flag is not racist either, the war was not fought because of race but over succession from the Union. To me the Confederate flag means standing up to the man for what you think is right. As a Northerner I am allowed to have this viewpoint and blacks should be eternally thankful to us Northerners for freeing them.

    They lynched horse thieves..I don’t think they were all black. Hanging used to be the norm for capital punishment ..that is lynching. Joe Biden has used the term. Some people just look for ways to be offended..chill. Can anyone say if blacks are so into their race, why do they go into mixed marriages, relationships with Caucasians. Doesn’t’t that dilute your lineage? Every other ad or show depicts a mixed race relationship. Why are advertisers push this? Does the black community like this? Just curious.
