I’m afraid of people with confederate flags but if I was a girl I’d def be afraid of incels/tate fans

What's concerning is that people are displaying confederate flags in other countries. But I'm not really surprised. That kind of cancer knows no borders.

When I was a kid it probably just meant Dukes of Hazzard fans. Now though, it's racism. (Aotearoa New Zealand)

Pretty sure it still meant racism even when you were a kid.

What I mean is, I knew kids who would draw it because they were Dukes fans. NZ was pretty isolated from American politics back then so in at least some cases this was probably also true of adults. But yeah some of them were no doubt racist. Certainly there were plenty of racists here in the 70s but mostly anti Maori and anti asian.

When I was a kid it was this, also it meant not giving in to the man and living a good life whilst avoiding being set up by corrupt local cops. I mean in the sense of the dukes of hazzard TV show.

No it meant racist things. It didn’t just become hateful. It always was.

Not in the TV show which is what was being discussed.

Lol sure the tv show could have tried to make it different but it still meant racism. No amount of cultural impact can change that even when the show was out. People just use that as an excuse to fly it. Fuck that
