No controversy. Just people begging for attention by being "offended".

Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it, don’t cancel parts of our history just because they make you butthurt. Should we forget about the Comanche tribes simply because their main interaction with other peoples before their subjugation by the US was to kill and scalp their men and kidnap their women?

“I will be respectfully requesting that the Tucson Rodeo Parade Committee remove it from all future parades and instead recognize the history of our city’s heritage by including the Tohono O’odham and Pascua Yaqui flags, with their respective nations’ consent”

I don't care about the implied racist overtones of the flag or the those butthurt whiners that want to erase history. However, I don't recall General Robert E. Lee's battle flag ever being flown into battle within Arizona. For that matter, I don't recall Arizona ever being part of the Confederacy.

Can we exclude democrats from the parade? They have proven over and over that they are offensive.

I would say remove the mayor, most people dont know what the flag stands for. Ignorant people think it is jest a racist flag but they are wrong.

Banning something only increases appeal. Most people I have ever met wear or fly that flag as opposition to government not race. Yes racist use it but who gives a fuck if they tell you they are racist. It is better to see someone without a mask then behind one.

If people are allowed to burn the American flag as a protected first Amendment act then nobody can stop anyone from displaying whatever flag/colored piece of fabric they dang well please.
