    Farrakhan is still a fool, trying to make himself relevant after sqandering his potential influence following the successful Million Man March in the 1990s. We are the United States of America, American citizens, one nation, one people. We still have a long way to go before we become a nation that lives up to its ideas but we will move forward as a unified people--white, black, brown, yellow, red, etc., pausing only for a second to glance at an outdated relic like Farrakhan, who doesn't recognize (1) this isn't the 1960s and (2) his 15 minutes are up.

    Wrong. Black America shouldn't put down the flag. We are Americans and helped build this country, making it one of the most powerful countries in history. My father fought in World War II. When he died he received a 21-gun salute by retired soldiers who had never met him but wanted to acknowledge his service to this country. Family members sometime argue. That doesn't mean they're no longer family. We're an integral part of America and should therefore not put down the flag but raise the flag and respect what it stands for in principle if not always in practice.

    The ministers overall point is that
    black folk shouldn't make a big deal, small deal and
    or any deal about the rebel flag, that if one wanna
    take issue with the rebel flag for what many believe
    symbolizes violence and hostility toward black folk, then
    one should take issue with the stars/stripes for all that which
    the rebel flag symbolizes, is what actually has taken place under
    the stars/stripes toward black folk.
