Well, I let myself fall into the hole again. I try to NOT read comments on controversial posts, coz I know I'm gonna get mad, or sad, or disgusted with the human race...
I happened upon a short article about a man's fight to allow a Confederate flag on FL license plates. A couple of quotes in the article itself made me mad, sad, AND disgusted. Then I just had to read some comments. Which led to reading more comments... and more... *sigh* Seriously, I'm so tired of being maligned for something my ancestors never did. Even if they had, why should I be ostracized and called derogatory names for it? It just amazes me how hateful people can be while calling me a defeated, redneck, backwards, inbred hater.
OK, I just backspaced over a lot of 'facts', coz most of y'all already know all that. Most who don't have their minds made up and don't want to be bothered with facts, anyhow. I just wish I could take pride in my ancestors' commitment to a JUST cause without being compared to a nazi. 8-(
