Is it possible to have a sense of pride in where one was born and ones, general, culture in a place/flag like the confederate flag and maintain a communist position?62 posts and 11 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.
Let me pre-face this with: I do not wish to re-institute slavery and I do support the unique struggles black people face in American society and historically, but, I do feel a sense of pride when I see this flag. It connects me to my culture that I grew up with. It reminds me of cook outs and maw-maw making dinner, etc etc etc; Hanging out by a bon-fire playing guitar with my friends when I was young. That is the type of thing that I feel and am reminded of when I see this flag. I grew up with this flag and my Father flew this flag. My father was no more racist than your typical boomer.
I, also, am a communist, I full support a peoples struggle and revolution against the bourgeois state. I simply want to know if it is possible, or, reasonable, to maintain this ideology, or, sense of nostalgia when I see the confederate flag. What do you think /b/ is it truly racist?
>>12878>unless you are in some landlocked county with nothing but box churches and Wal-Marts the South is a fucking blast.
Kentucky is not really the South, though, is it? It's one of those border states.
Oh, gotcha. Shit. Well, you have to have a vehicle if you live in the South, so take a drive. Get on down to Biloxi or Panama City or Mobile or New Orleans this weekend. You will find trouble and a good time, and don't be afraid to talk to people. Another great thing about the South is that folks are generally cool with talking to strangers, particularly if they already have a few in them. Have a good time, man, you owe it to yourself after having never been to a party while living in the South.
