The Confederate Flag, the Redneck Parade, and the Warrior Queen

I haven't written anything on this blog about the controversy over whether the confederate flag should be banned, like the one flying outside the South Carolina legislature, for two reasons:

One, the racism and the gun violence of America makes me sick to my stomach.

And two, I made my feelings pretty clear on Twitter.

But I thought I should share this video about a redneck parade in Georgia, because while it's horrifying and outrageous, the end is hilarious.

Yes indeed, as the guy said "God don't like ugly."

And needless to say Bree Newsome is my new  warrior queen. 

"I did it for all the fierce black women on the front lines of the movement and for all the little black girls who are watching us," she wrote. "I did it because I am free."

Free Bree.

Arrest these racist bigots.

And then burn their filthy flag...
