Not just the Confederate flag

Once the book burners get started........

 

snip-

On Columbus Day, the Swarthmore Indigenous Students Association (SISA) burned the American flag and issued a set of demands, including removal of the flag from campus.

The demands, posted on flyers in the campus dining hall, also called on Swarthmore College to “admit and recruit native students,” asserting that “Swarthmore has consistently had a student body that is less than 1% indigenous,” possibly because it “does not recruit on any reservations or at any of the Native schools.”

The students also demanded an “indigenous studies special major,” but then went on to insist that the school “actively encourage classes on indigenous people in all departments.”

Additionally, protesters called for the removal of “the U.S. flag from Parrish,” an on-campus building, claiming that “Indigenous students have died in the name of this flag” while “international students suffer the effects of the American neocolonialism of this flag.”

Re: Not just the Confederate flag

If anyone has a cause to burn the flag it would be native americans, but how many actual native americans do you suppose are in the group?

How oppressed can they be attending a $65,000/year private school?

In this country, only whites are not oppressed in some way.

Oh I forgot that your right to discriminate against anyone you don’t like has been deemed illegal. Sorry, you are oppressed!

Re: Not just the Confederate flag

Who was disrespecting the US flag? You mean all you guys flying the confederate flag? Or how when you put on your flag shirt? How about those people st football games with a huge flag being displayed horizontally, just to name a few. But if you mean taking a knee during the anthem, you need to tell me how that is being disrespectful. Do you not kneel and now your head when you talk to God? Is that disrespectful to God?? I guess in your eyes it is. Shame on you!
