Should the Confederate flag be allowed to fly at NASCAR races? posted by Matt Humphrey on May 12, 2008 Monte Dutton of the Gaston Gazette wrote this in a column about NASCAR fans at Darlington Raceway (read it here): Most fans wouldn't be caught dead wearing "gear" that is outdated. I truly was shocked at the incredible absence of year-old Dale Earnhardt Jr. Budweiser T-shirts. Fashion trends are actually important to NASCAR [...]

Regarding "Petition seeks to remove Denton Confederate statue" From: To: stories/wfaa080428_mo_statuedebate.aced19a6.html Good Day to you! Once again," political correctness" rears its ugly head in beautiful Denton, Texas. As an African American I find the selective inclusion of "acceptable" aspects of black history to the exclusion of others to be highly racist and willfully ignorant. I also find this whole concept of "white guilt" to be equally ignorant as well. [...]

It is well to hold in high regard those who honorably fought for a cause in which they believed a hundred years ago. The same could be said about the soldiers of Hitler. [...]

How the South Won (This) Civil War Monday, April 28, 2008 This may be just another anti-Southern rant, but with a subtitle like "Maybe it's time for the North to secede from the Union," it's at least worth reading.
