CDoherty95 Posted March 25, 2012 Report Share Posted March 25, 2012 Hey y'all This is something that has been bugging me for a while,and to be honest it's making me laugh at their ignorance and stupidity. For the record I just want to say that I am in no way a racist person, and despite people getting hot under the collar about the General Lee and the Dukes being a symbol of racism because it was set in the south and had a confederate flag on the General Lee. Gy Waldron himself said that he was worried about the all white population during the first season, so he wrote some of the bad guy and police roles for black people. The Dukes,at least in my opinion, is a show about family and right and wrong,where the good guys always win,nobody dies an the bad guys always lose. There was no hint of racism in the show (at least I couldn't find any) ,so why is the confederate flag now considered a symbol of racism?? As an Irish person I could play the same card that NAACP are playing with the English flag because of the plantations. But why don't I? Because I'm not a political correctness freak who believes everybody should be wrapped up in bubblewrap,safe from any possible harm or bad thing. What's your opinion on the confederate flag? Is NAACP being stupid, or do they have a point?And just incase anyone from NAACP happens to be reading this, and was responsible for the General Lee becoming a symbol of racism...YEEE-HAAWW!!!
