I grew up and live in rural Canada and trust me, it's everywhere. Back in high school it was really all over the place but back then (13-14 years ago) I honestly think it was just a symbol of for lack of a better term, rebellion. Not rebellion against the government or anything like that but more like just general "I'm small town, rural, etc, and I don't fit in with the rest of society". I don't think half my buddies could even give a time period or quick rundown of the War between the States but they were still rockin the emblem.

I grew up in a small town southern ON, surrounded by farms, very Christian, even had to say the lords prayer in public school, but they pointed out that you don't have to say it, it's just convenient. Yeah, being racist in high school was the way to rebel or be edgy cool, but...... it was weird, because the DIE HARDS, all...5 of them, would always be shunned. Nowadays I've talked to some people and most of them grew out of it and regret it, unlike those 5, who are still "proud" and still shunned and unsuccessful.

Honestly, if I had to say it, there weren't that many in my high school, most were all bark, no bite, but I don't know if it's because it was a non religious school or what.

I was friends with Juggalos and they were nice guys actually. That's what happens when you group with the freaks.

That's the thing though, is that I didn't see the racism as being a part of the Confederate flag wavers in Alberta where I was. Most of us hadn't even seen or interacted with a black person until we were teenagers and went to the city. Hell, there's pictures of my buddy on his boat with with Jamaican wife and two mixed white/black kids with the flag flapping merrily in the breeze behind them. Looking back now it's a ridiculous situation, but a lot of the guys that I'm friends with that were big into having that flag displayed were and still are completely ignorant of the symbol. To them it's just a flag that people that drive trucks and come from rural backgrounds use to show where they're "rebels".

And that's a problem. Ignorance may be the reason, but it's not an excuse.

To be honest, I find it incredibly racist to fly that symbol and be ignorant to what it means. That's the kind of racism that makes someone part of the problem, even if they're not one of the people shooting unarmed black men. You have to be incredibly privileged to fly that flag and not know what it means.

I'm always baffled by how incredibly privileged people from Indonesia are. Don't they have any idea of what it is to struggle in life?

Yeah the flag only meant around here that you loved southern life. They aren't ignorant, they knew exactly what it is, it represents the south during the civil war, no more no less. You can be racist and not have slaves, you can have slaves and not be racist. So no, the flag isn't racist, but racists use it to represent them, but so do non racist, stop giving it the power you so desperately want it to not have.

Stupid much?


And TUM, you're being the standard poor white man again. You can struggle, and still be quite privileged with regard to race and political matters (this is the thing poor white people keep forgetting). Also, if you're able to open a Nazi themed restaurant, or be part of a successful boy band, clearly you're not poor and struggling.

I find your stereotyping of me to be highly offensive, Rune. How do you know what race I identify as?

That aside, what does that first part have to do with anything? Indonesians aren't white.

And please, you should know by now that I don't let truth get in the way of easy jokes the same way you can't resist being pedantic.

Easy, you're one of the whitest guys on this forum. Sure, Salibu has you beat by a long shot, but you're in the running for second place.

For the second part, you're being the standard poor white man in terms of your thought process, the Indonesians are irrelevant.


When your jokes are good, I will ignore the rest. But as long as they fall flat, I won't put up with it.

Don't be ridiculous, I hate to run.

So it's a very white train of thought to believe that it's a little ridiculous to talk about how racist a bunch of Indonesians are for not knowing WWII history?

I mean, those same sorts of cafes are in Japan and if you want to talk about how bad it is that Japan whitewashes pretty much everything from that era, I'll agree, but Indonesia had jack all to do with the big dubya two. Why are we expecting them to know history that isn't theirs?

It's the same principle of how I expect people to know better than to wear a shirt with racist/hateful shit from another culture (and yes, I am constantly disgusted with Americans doing just that). It's not like Indonesia and Thailand don't have the internet.

A boy band all dresses up like Hitler? A Nazi themed restaurant opens? And no one spends the thirty seconds to browse on google? Bullshit.


It's a very poor white person train of thought to believe a less well of person can't be racist. It's also a very poor white person train of thought to believe someone acting out of ignorance isn't racist.


And Japan occupied Indonesia during WW2. So what do you mean it's not part of their history? Do you think Japan just bombed Pearl Harbor and had nothing else going on during the war?
