  • Been that way for a few years now. So you are all giddy because NASCAR is announcing it again?

    Lemme say that again... I don't care. If. The accusations against Trump. Are factual. Or not.

  • They gona tell a bunch of their customers that they can't fly that flag? Attendance has been slipping ever since they started that"all cars the same" thing. So good luck with that. No viewers, no sponsors, no race. The drivers will have to go back to running shine and racing real "stock cars" on local dirt tracks.

    Giddy? not at all. If I am not mistaken it is the battle flag, not the flag of the Confederacy.


    Announcing again? Not quite.


    NASCAR has been under pressure for years to ban the flag that has long been prevalent at its racetracks and flown on RVs at its infields on race days.


    In 2015, then-NASCAR CEO and Chairman Brian France referred to the flag as an "offensive and divisive symbol."


    His remarks were prompted by the killings of nine African Americans in a South Carolina church.

    France subsequently implemented a flag exchange program at all racing events in which fans could trade in a Confederate flag for an American one.


    The latest directive comes just days after popular driver Darrell "Bubba" Wallace — the only African American racing in its top circuit — called for the flag's ouster.


    Mississippi, is going to in trouble as well.

  • funny thing is it isnt the flag of the confederacy but the flag of the army of Northern Virginia

    Most people wouldn't know the confederate flag if a member of the KKK used one to lynch them with it

  • That is the 1st national flag with 7 stars (March 4 – May 21, 1861)

    The next one had 9 stars, then 11 stars and then 13 stars (December 10, 1861 – May 1, 1863)


    The final flag the "Blood-Stained Banner" was adopted March 4, 1865.

  • The reason the Anglo-Normans refused to acknowledge the southern confederacy was mostly due to the still smarting bruises and welts the southerners had administered to Cornwallis during the previous civil war at the end of the 18th century.

  • Cornwallis' superior officer was Sir Henry Clinton.
