No. It is history and was a symbol in Europe way before it was brought here. I can see how some may find the Rebel Flag offensive mostly because of the fact that it has been adopted and bastardized by hate groups as a symbol of hate. To me the flag in and of itself is not offensive but the fact it has been used to signify hate ruined it of any historical signifigance. There is a difference between history and hate.

Re: Is the flour De Lis Offensive.

If we do go this route people need to understand some overlooked facts:

By 1830 there were 3,775 black families living in the South who owned black slaves. By 1860 there were about 3,000 slaves owned by black households in the city of New Orleans alone.

Shame on the family seems to have more than one color in New Orleans.

Whoa now. We don't want the revisionist "historians" to have to re-rewrite history. It could change the almighty hate stirring narrative - which people who claim to be above hatred- know and love.

Re: Is the flour De Lis Offensive.

It took us, what, 33 years to win a playoff game?

I'd say that's pretty offensive. I'm offended.

Click bait? Have you been watching the world around us lately? This is real life happening, not some TMZ gossip topic.

Re: Is the flour De Lis Offensive.

This is getting beyond carried away. 3000 slaves were owned by black slave owners in New Orleans. I feel confident there are descendents of those black slave owners still living in the city who are Saints fans and never had a problem with it.

The only problem I see here are organizations that refuse to let it go. At some point, the United Negro College fund will be racist along with the NAACP which is real close to right now. There is nobody left who was a slave or slave owner. There is no government agency or official who thinks any race is superior. If anything, those organizations do more harm than good right now because their whole existence depends upon the strength of racism. Without it, they die.

*Sees link... sees CSC... is confused by comment... *

I watch the world around me all the time.

Now, I don't always read about it from alleged "journalistic" sources, and when I do, I prefer Knob Creek, and take it as mere entertainment.
