Skip to comments.Philly’s Pride Flag to Get Two New Stripes: Black and Brown
Posted on 06/09/2017 4:49:12 AM PDT by ConservativeStatement
Multiple sources closely connected with Thursdays First Annual Pride Kick-Off at City Hall have confirmed to G Philly that the citys Pride flag will add black and brown stripes below the traditional six-color rainbow layout. The new permanent design will be, from top to bottom: black, brown, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple.
The black and brown stripes are an inclusionary way to highlight black and brown LGBTQIA members within our community, said one source involved with the flag-raising event who asked not to be named. With all of the black and brown activism thats worked to address racism in the Gayborhood over the past year, I think the new flag is a great step for the city to show the world that theyre working toward fully supporting all members of our community.

Brown sounds about right!
What about magenta, fuchsia, turquoise. And how about colors from the infrared and ultraviolet spectrum? Limiting colors to those seen by humans is a micro-agression.
Let’s have a black-and-white striped flag to represent a) prisoners and b) the wildly disproportionate black-on-white crime figures.
We could put a dab of every color known to man into a tub, throw in a dirty towel and mix it up....my guess is that it will come out the color baby crap brown, just like their politics.
Everything BUT white.
I'm offended. NOT
There is no White stripe. Since everything is significant with these people, it’s obvious that the omission was deliberate.
I have been crowing that they want to eliminate Whitey, after taking all his money.
The colors of poop & death - how appropriate!
It is a victory for the gays if they can convince blacks that they are the same kind of minority.
By adding those stripes it is no longer a rainbow which is a good development from my point of view.
“There is no White stripe.”
Yeah, wheah da white stripe at?
Can’t they just change it to NS for ‘Not Straight’? For Crissakes already!!
I think they need a nice mauve ... maybe with an hint of lilac or peach.
In the past, the black and mixed-race people I have known who weren’t part of academia always resented any attempt to group race with sexual deviancy. Whether they were for affirmative action/liberal or were more conservative/libertarian, they thought that at best these folks (who never had problems getting remuneration or seats at restaurants) were free riders, but for the most part were a degrading group with which to be associated.
These people have become a farce of a parody.
"...add black and brown stripes below..." versus "...top to bottom: black, brown, red, orange..."
You'd think a professional writer would be able to write in a professional manner.
