So what. That's their business. I find the act of attacking women cowardly. What was shared with me, made my blood boil.But joining the UDC is going beyond merely acknowledging a connection to the confederacy. It's crossing into honoring the confederacy, and I can imagine how some might find the idea of a black person honoring the confederacy to be upsetting.
The original claim was that even acknowledging a connection to the confederacy would put a black person in danger.
Does freedom of expression only apply if you agree with said expression..? What happened to "live & let live". "Different strokes for different folks"..?
Personally, I don't care who, what, or how, you honor anything, or anyone. That's up to you in my opinion. My only exception would be, actual violence, or threats of violence. I'm of the opinion that you can believe, or honor stuff I find absurd, or extremely offensive, & still be a good person. We can even be friends with differing views/opinions.
