Dave Neiwert's post at Orcinus about a town in Michigan that flew a KKK white power edition of the Confederate flag at a town picnic got my blood boiling a little bit. That flag is a symbol of pure hate. Anyone that can fly that flag and act as if it's no big deal ... well ...
To avoid flying off into a rage of profanity, I think I'll try this approach. To understand the hate that the flag represents, then watch this video. It's A & E's Skinheads USA: Soldiers of the Race War, a documentary from 1993 about a KKK/skinhead group based in Georgia and Alabama.
Watching that video, it's surreal. Its hard to imagine that those people actually exist. So backwards, so full of ignorance and hate. I look at them like an anthropological curiosity. They talk and dress like 20th century humans ... but they have the minds of pre-civilized man.
