Now we use regular Americans, immigrants, and citizens of developing countries for cheap labor. Wage slavery replaced real slavery in the West. This is real oppression. All this other conversation is just smoke and mirrors.

Twenty years ago, the Rebel flag on a truck usually meant there were some young white kids drinking beer and smoking weed in that truck. It's wasn't uncommon to have a black friend participating in the fun. Nobody thought twice about racism when looking at the flag.

Now, when a white kid does something heartless and cruel, we blame a fucking flag. I guess the next Dukes of Hazzard remake should use a gun metal gray Charger so it doesn't incite feelings of hate and oppression. People are responsible for their actions and feelings, not symbols.
