Suspended ‘Dixie chicks’ defend attire:
Cute play on words CNN has going on there. Anyway, 35 South Carolina high school students were suspended for wearing a t-shirt that shows chickens hatching from eggs decorated with the Confederate flag and says”Southern chicks, better than the rest”. The student interviewed by the AP said…
“I had no idea in the world anyone would be offended by this,”
Oh, I don’t know. How about Blacks, Hispanics, Jews, Catholics, and anyone else the Klan finds questionable? That’s who would be offended by it.
Talk all you want about Southern Pride. When you say that and display a Confederate Flag along with it it’s like saying “White Power”. If you want to be proud of your Southern heritage that’s fine, but that flag has stood for slavery since its inception and has been adopted by racist and white supremacist hate groups.
In the eyes of the rest of the country, you’re just enforcing an old stereotype that people from the south are racist rednecks. Be proud that you’re from the south but be ashamed of its past transgressions.
