What Color is the Sky ?

The Confederate Flag Day on 3/5/16 had a good response.

One report from Gettysburg caught my attention.

Mr Scott Hancock made a comment to a local news outlet -

"There are plenty of symbols you can choose that don't have the history and present
day connection with racism that that one does.

I guess he has a point, depending on which side of the fence you are on.

But the same report states that the counter protesters started their protest at a statue of
Abraham Lincoln.

Then moved on 2 miles to counter the Pro Flag people.

I wonder how many anti flag protesters know that Abe Lincoln said -

" I, as well as Justice Douglas,
am in favor of the race to which I belong
having the superior position."

Maybe some do and I'm betting many don't !

But I also bet the ones that do and the ones that don't, don't care !

For them it's not History, it's Hate.

They see only what they want to see, and hear only what they want to hear.

I wonder what color the sky is in their world ?
