That racist flag

What did I learn this week, in August 2015, in case anyone is interested? I learned the POW_MIA flag was racist Well, now I know because someone tells us so.

So according to a columnist in Newsweek, the POW-MIA flag is racist and should be pulled down, ASAP. Mediaite

Newsweek reprinted a column by journalist Rick Perlstein on Tuesday arguing that the POW/MIA flag had racist origins.

“You know that racist flag?” he writes in “The Forgotten Story of America’s Other Racist Flag.” “The one that supposedly honors history but actually spreads a pernicious myth? And is useful only to venal right-wing politicians who wish to exploit hatred by calling it heritage? It’s past time to pull it down.”

And the Federalist has a piece on it.
