ReverendJasen: ReapTheChaos: Total bullshiat.

First off, every McD's has a manager or assistant on duty throughout the entire day, there is no way they would let anyone get away with that.

You're naive.  I know it sucks to admit it to yourslef, but you've eaten a spitburger at some point.  Or a dropped-on-the-floor burger, or I-just-scratched-my-ass-with-this-spatula burger, or these-patties-were-left-out-for-8-hours-in-the-backroom-before-cooking burgers, or the ever popular I-just-scratched-my-balls-before-putting-on-the-cheese pizza.
Accept it.  But don't think about it too hard.


You're trying too hard.

Most places as such have open kitchens where people an see most anything that goes on.

The kind of activity you're talking about is more non-chain businesses or places with non-observable kitchens.

RobSeace: ReapTheChaos: Yeah I don't get the whole "southerners are racist" stereotype either.

Well, I'm just guessing here, but I'm going to go ahead and say it stems from that bit about them wanting to own black people as property, and going to war with the north over it... Just a guess, though...


Yeah, you might want to sit down for this, but that was 148 years ago, we don't keep the colored folk as slaves anymore.

LordZorch: It's Chili's - how would you know if they served you a dog-turd sandwich instead of their "food"...?


Yeah, it's not like they're Olive Garden or anything.

And, as I said in a later post, I wasn't justifying continued use of the stereotype, just answering where it came from... Since you seemed confused as to why anyone would get the wacky idea that the south was racist... Yes, it was a long time ago and it may no longer be accurate, but that's why nonetheless...

Also, it might be helpful for getting rid of the stereotype if fewer southerners flew confederate flags still... It seems to some people like at least some of you are proud of the south's role in the civil war, rather than ashamed as sane people should be...

But, again, it's certainly wrong to stereotype an entire group of people based on the actions of some of them, in any case... I'm certainly not advocating doing it... I'm just explaining why some people do...

Well I'm not going to condone those who fly the confederate flag, but I don't think they do it because they hate black people or condone slavery. I think they are proud to be from the south, not because they used to have slaves way back when, but for many other reasons and the flag is just a symbol of the south that's easily recognizable to them.

This, sort of.

It's hard to tell based on flying the flag alone, and often ends in prejudice.  It does have a justified stigma, but it doesn't necessarily apply to all.

I find it more aesthetically pleasing as well.  I like the symmetry and the angles.  It just "looks cool."

I would never fly one or adorn anything with the design though, because of the obvious conclusions people would draw.

I do find that people who would are not the sort of people that would stop to think of what people might take from it with reason, and are therefore a bit stupid or ignorant, if not racist.

If you liked some of the ideals, write a poem or some shiat on a plaque and hang that on the wall or mailbox.  You cannot realistically expect people to see the flag and know exactly what you mean when you fly it and really, you can't fault people who may think negative things about it or you.  Human's are flawed and association weights heavily.

And as for being "from the south" or pride for your part in any given group.

Give it up.  If it's a relevant social issue today, sure, take pride in fighting for gay rights, for example.  That's fine, you're doing the stand up thing.

Trying to be clann-ish and establish a seperateness, not a unity, is only going to cause strife.  That goes for pride in race, pride in sexuality, etc.

We're all just people, and if race or sexuality don't matter, stop trying to give it meaning more than what it has.  You deserve equality, and it stops there.  Take pride in your positive accomplishments, not your default state.  Have shame in your failures, not your default state.

This is something I can't quite wrap my head around, why people take pride, that sense of specialness, from mundane things that millions of people are.  Sure, it doesn't help that's what your parent's did, tell you that you were special, regardless of whether you were shiatting your pants or getting an A+.  But for the cycle to perpetuate as it does when we can plainly identify other faulty/unfair behaviors...boggles the mind.

Yes, I'm sure that is the case for many of them... But, it's still a pretty poor choice of symbols on their part... I mean, not to Godwin the thread, but it would be like a group of modern day Germans adopting the swastika as a symbol of German heritage, and being confused as to why that upsets Jewish people so much, since they don't mean any harm by it... Why not invent a new symbol of the south which doesn't remind everyone of that time you fought so hard to own slaves?
