Happy Independence Day!
The thoughts of a writer.
So you noticed I'm bald and now you feel the need to make a derogatory remark at my expense. You may not know this, but most bald men are pretty much OK with being bald. In fact, I have shaved my head and embraced the whole thing. What gets old though, is when people think they need to make disparaging remarks about it. Apparently, in our "politically correct" society, even though I would be shamed if I called you ugly, or fat, or stupid, you think it is all right to make fun of my hair (or someone who is short). Why are some things "out-of-line," while others are "fair game?" Just to set the record straight, if you make cracks about me being bald I won't think it is funny or that you are great. I will think you are an idiot with no manners. So be my guest and take your best shot; just don't act surprised if I don't seem like I enjoy it. And finally, "Hey baldy," is not an appropriate way of greeting someone. Try, "hello," you dumb-ass.

Yes it is. So, arguably, is the Nazi Swastika—though that sign has kinder origins that date back over 5000 years before Hitler polluted it. The Confederate flags have no such history. They were created to protect a way of life that would perpetuate the idea that some people were the property of other people. While all colors of people have throughout history, been both slaves and slave owners, the stain on the history of the United States that is represented by the Confederate flag—is undoubtedly a racist one.
