NAACP BOYCOTT

NAACP Branch Readies for Confederate Flag Fight - Local News | News Articles | National News | US News - FOXNews.com

So the naacp wants NASCAR to ban the display of the Confederate flag at the races, meaning they want NASCAR to tell it's loyal fans "No you can't exercise your right to freedom of expression." And for them to say they will boycott the race if NASCAR doesn't ban the flag is something I find quite humorous, who cares if a group of people that have never been to a race boycott it? Thoughts?

I personally do not care for the confederate flag but if you want to fly it go ahead and do it. This is just one more right that people are trying to take away from us.

Don't surprise me. Being Nascar which is founded in the south. Has the Southern heritage behind it.

I am sure that Nascar will go with the NCAAP to prevent any serious law suit. How ever I don't think it is up to Nascar to dictate what can be done at the tracks. I think it should be the tracks that make the decission.

NASCAR already prohibits the display of the Confederate flag on any NASCAR related item, i.e. Cars, Sponsorships, etc. That's not good enough for the NAACP though. They want them to ban people wearing shirts, and or, any other display of the flag. I guess they'll have to boycott Mississippi now too.

It never ceases to amaze me how the very people who cry for civil rights try to stop those same rights of those who don't agree with them.

But the flag has already been banned on everything NASCAR, cars, merchandise, etc. The naacp wants them to tell fans they can't wear things like dixie outfitter shirts because they have the confederate flag.

Yet just another example of what is wrong with the American society today. Everyone is so worried about "hurting someones feelings" and being politically correct. I say F IT!

The confederate flag is used by hate groups, but in large it is used as an expression of having pride in your region of birth. I know that even as a "Yankee" people born in the south are tremendously proud of being southern. Isn't the southern ideals what most of us talk about on here? Slavery aside they stood up to the government and the imposed huge taxes on southern cotton and tobacco.

I'm so sick of people doing the tap dance to try to make everyone happy. Not everyone is going to like EVERYTHING THE EXACT SAME WAY.

Speaking of NAACP, have you all seen the new political group NAAWP? How about White Entertainment Television? How about the United Caucasian College Fund? No? Me either, IT WOULD BE CONSIDERED RACIST

Which is why I stated I don't think it is up to Nascar at this point. I believe it should be up to the track at which the event is held at.

Let the NCAAP go to Talladega for a race. I would love to see them tell the spectators down there they can't wear that shirt or can't have that flag displaying.

Does the NCAAP even realize that NASCAR was formed in the southern states.

After racers were catching heat for racing on streets.
