Well, I'd have to say it is if that country is the Confederate States of America.

I got told to take my flag bearing The Cross of St George down on St George's day last year by the police... For... Get this... 'Enciting racial hatred'.

I felt like a prisoner in my own country.

Well, your flag was blatently anti-dragon.

If it's a tiny flag (like the ones that go on antennas), you can fly it. Larger flags need to be attached to the truck so that they don't flap, or else they can site you for causing disctractions, unsafe driving, whatever.

At least in New York State.

It depends city by city. Here in Minneapolis as long as the truck is standing still its ok but not while in motion. You'd have to check your local ordinances, both for the city and county.

Just stick it out the window?
The arena is empty except for one man,
Still driving and striving as fast as he can.
The sun has gone down and the moon has come up,
And long ago somebody left with the cup,
But he's driving and striving and hugging the turns...

that's ridiculous. so instead of people stopping racial hatred, they're just stopping people showing their 'race' so to speak?

in a place that i "used" to work i had a small scottish flash sitting in a glass on my desk, my supervisor came over and asked me to remove the flag for no reason what so ever.

This is how it went.

John - "David could you please remove that Scotland flag from your desk please, its is inappropriate for the work place"

Me - "Why must i remove it when i am only showing patrionism for my country? Techinically by telling me to remove this is a racist remark and therefore i will be treating it as one and making a formal complaint"

John - "Oh well it doesn't matter then it was just upsetting some people around the office"

Me - "Really but i dont really get upset with the english flags that are on peoples desks, and Robert over there has an African flag on his desk"

*End Of Conversation*

My supervisor was english and upon some research i found out he wasn't too fond of the scots.

So technically if your flying your countries flag and someone asks you to take it, that person is being racist.

Just because the KKK and other hate groups use it doesn't mean its a symbol of hate. It just simply shows having pride being from the south.

It is illegal to be in the bed of a truck while moving. It violates seatbelt laws, and I'm sure they could ticket the driver for something more.

thats such a bogus argument man. the only thing you are celebrating or showing 'pride' for is your ancestors being racists. the confederate flag is a symbol of the south during the civil war, the south during the civil war is a symbol of slavery. no, i dont think it should be outlawed because of freedom of speech, but i do think its a racist symbol because alot of people take it that way.

dont believe me? come up north and walk through a predominantly black neighborhood wearing a confederate flag shirt and see what happens.


TS, is the truck moving? i dont think you can sit in the bed of a pickup while its moving regardless.

The South during the Civil War was a symbol for state's rights. One of the rights they claimed was the right for each state to pass its own laws regarding slavery.

I could go into a long rant about how being proud of circumstances beyond your control only contributes to discrimination, racism, hatred, and war (Esepcially if you're proud of being born in a certain country), but I'll just say that flying a flag on your truck is retarded.


Edit: And the Civil War was not fought over slavery.

i went to school in virginia my first year of college and my roommate had a huge confederate flag on the wall. we probably had this conversation weekly

i realize there was much, much more to the civil war than just slavery but without the slavery issue there most likely wouldnt have been a civil war. while you cant say that the war was fought over slavery, considering that the economic system of the south was largely based on it, the south was fighting for the right to keep blacks as slaves.

i think because of that, the confederate flag became a symbol of oppressing blacks and in a larger sense, racism.

yeah, maybe if a swastika said 'die jews' or something it would be a racist symbol too...
