    University students in Massachusetts who were upset by an image of a Confederate flag sticker on another student's laptop were offered counseling services at Framingham State University. The offer came after the university's "chief diversity and inclusion officer," Sean Huddleston, described the display of the small Confederate flag sticker as a "bias incident." -snip MRCTV obtained the email in which Huddleston wrote: A student reported a bias incident today, in which the image of the Confederate flag was displayed on a laptop. Many of you may be aware that last month we received a Bias Incident involving two other students...

    It's an Obama world. A black gang of six youths brutally beat two white kids for having a Confederate flag decal in their truck window. The entire assault was caught on tape. One of the white men was talking to the men when he was knocked unconscious. That's when the second man was attacked by at least six black youths.

    (CNN) - During the Civil War, it was a patch of the South so reviled by the Confederacy for its pro-Union leanings that it in 1862 it was declared "enemy territory" by the secessionist government. The area's most celebrated native, Andrew Johnson, was the only Southern senator to remain loyal to the Union. Johnson would go on to become president, succeeding Abraham Lincoln. Now, more than 150 years later, Greene County, Tennessee is once again ruffling feathers on matters pertaining to the long-gone Confederacy. This time, however, the rebellious county just might turn the historical tables and for the first...

    A Michigan man employed at the Hillsdale Bob Evans plant was fired after refusing to remove a Confederate flag from his truck, the Hillsdale Daily News reports. According to the man, his bosses at the plant forced him to remove it after receiving a single anonymous complaint. Angela Payne, a spokeswoman for the restaurant chain, told NBC24 that the flag was offensive to many customers and employees. The employee, Wesley Rogers, was told two weeks ago to remove the flag but refused, resulting in his termination. They said they were doing their best to follow up on a complaint, Rogers...

    In an unusual legal maneuver, the district attorney in this suburb of Atlanta has won indictments against 15 supporters of the Confederate battle flag, accusing them of violating the states anti-street gang ordinance during a confrontation with black partygoers in July, the district attorney said on Monday. Prosecutors say that members of the group, which calls itself Respect the Flag, threatened a group of African-Americans participating in an outdoor party on July 25. A cellphone video of part of the episode shows several white men driving away from the party in a convoy of pickup trucks with the Confederate battle...

Other than that it was a question of free speech. (Or racism or oppression or whatever you like.) Remember that line? Ah, good times, my friends. But that’s long since ceased to be the case. As many of us predicted, this trend was going to spread like pubic lice at an Occupy Wall Street camp, and it has been...

City leaders in Memphis plan to dig up the body of Confederate Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest, who is buried in a city park that once bore his name. A statue of the great cavalrymen will be removed. Nathan Bedford Forrest is a symbol of bigotry and racism, and those symbols have no place on public property, said council Chairman...

    After self-described racist killer Dylann Roof executed the black members of a church Bible study, people found photos of the killer holding the Confederate battle flag. There were also photos of him burning and stomping on the American flag per the request of a social media activist. Suddenly, the Southern Cross was removed from the public square all over state houses, companies, flag poles and college campuses. The murders prompted the call for the digging up the body of Nathan Bedford Forrest, the founder of the Ku Klux Klan. The Virginia murderer had in his possession the gay...

The Port Clinton News-Herald reports that roughly 50 vehicles are expected to participate, and that city leaders are expecting neither disruption nor significant changes in traffic volume. Event organizers didn't exactly echo the "heritage not hate" refrain of Confederate Flag supporters nationwide. One told the News-Herald that the flag is "not racist at all," that it's "just another red, white and blue flag," a "military thing." He said that organizers in Bucyrus had been trying to assemble a parade before, but couldn't...

Walpole is not a racist town and does not want to be perceived that way, School Committee chairwoman Nancy Gallivan said before the unanimous vote.

    Georgia's governor has quietly removed Confederate Memorial Day and Robert E. Lee's Birthday from the state calendar, replacing them with the innocuous-sounding designation "state holiday." The change, first reported by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, was contained in a memo dated August 5 sent by Governor Nathan Deal to state government staff.The move comes amid increasing backlash against symbols honoring the Confederacy. In late June, Alabama removed four Confederate flags from its Capitol. The next month, the Confederate battle flag (which has a different design from the Confederate national flag) was removed from the Capitol grounds in South Carolina after Dylann Roof,...

    There you have it. Immediately after learning about Dylan Roof, MSNBC had drawn the quick conclusion that Roof was a racist, right-wing supremacist. They weren't able to draw any conclusions about Abdulazeez's ideology, even after learning that he had visited the Middle-East and come back "very different" from his old self. For some bizarre reason, Maddow's brilliant investigative skills and intuition evaporated into thin air following the Chattanooga shooting. It was a truly strange phenomenon that, even after law enforcement deemed the shooting a terror attack, Maddow was unable to determine Abdulazeez's motivation. As more details emerged over the weeks,...

    Bucking a national trend, a defiant Walton County voted Tuesday after an emotional hearing to replace one Confederate flag with another one at its courthouse in the Florida Panhandle. Under intense pressure from a deeply divided citizenry, county commissioners agreed to remove the controversial flag with the X-shaped Southern Cross design that has flown at the courthouse in DeFuniak Springs since 1964, the year President Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act. As that flag heads to a local museum, it will be replaced by the first version of the Confederate flag known as the stars and bars, with 13 stars...

    Is the American mainstream media correct about what provokes mad dog killers? Did the gay rainbow flag provoke Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, the 24 year-old naturalized American citizen born in Kuwait who murdered four Marines and a Sailor Thursday, to commit his heinous crime? Abdulazeez, who was shot and killed by police Thursday, was a devout Muslim. And one thing we know about devout Muslims is that many vehemently oppose same sex marriage and consider homosexuality a sin. Back In May, two mad dog Muslims attempted to murder everyone at a free speech event in Texas. Because good guys with guns...

    I've been called a racist. I've been called a bigot. I've been called a non-Christian. When the controversy over the Confederate flag erupted last month, the owner of a Huntsville flag company said her business would make the flags even if no one else would. And that's apparently what's happened. "I'm not aware of another company in the United States making these flags," said Belinda Kennedy, owner of Alabama Flag & Banner, in an interview Thursday with AL.com. So now you know why the website for the Governors Drive business near downtown Huntsville cautions visitors that all Confederate flag orders...

    Weve written quite a bit about worsening race relations in America over the past several months. As Robert Putnam recently made clear with "Our Kids", the real threat to the fabric of American society may be the growing class divide and indeed, the post-crisis monetary policies that have served to exacerbate the disparity between the rich and everyone else have a polarizing effect, as Main Street watches helplessly while the very same bankers who took taxpayer money in 2008 become billionaires on the back of the Feds printing press.And while it might very well be that Americas future is...

    The president of Irelands Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) has implored fans of the County Cork teams to stop waving the Confederate flag during games. Fans of Cork (the Rebel County), whose colors are red and white, are known for flying a range of flags from around the world emblazoned with those colors. Some fans have a preference for the US Confederate flag because of the red and the white and because of the rebel connotations. This allegiance has been a source of controversy in the past, with activist groups in Ireland calling for a ban on the use of the...

    The Fresno City Council president vows the Confederate battle flag will never legally fly over Fresno City Hall. Not that its ever likely to happen. Not that its ever happened as far as City Hall veterans can recall. Council President Oliver Baines on Thursday is proposing a law that would prohibit the city from displaying or selling the Confederate battle flag. The law would not apply to private organizations or individuals. California lawmakers last year passed a similar law that applies to state government agencies. The Confederate flag on South Carolinas State House grounds was recently removed. Baines proposal comes...

    The victors of war write its history in order to cast themselves in the most favorable light. That explains the considerable historical ignorance about our war of 1861 and panic over the Confederate flag. To create better understanding, we have to start a bit before the 1787 Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. The 1783 Treaty of Paris ended the war between the colonies and Great Britain. Its first article declared the 13 colonies "to be free, sovereign and independent states." These 13 sovereign nations came together in 1787 as principals and created the federal government as their agent. Principals have always...
