Demonizing white people, European culture, and especially southern American European people and culture is a full time job of those who wish to deflect from the reality that many of the major problems in our society are disproportionately generated from minority communities.

It's also important to remember that it's not just some caucasian asshole at the St Pete Times having a war on the Confederate flag, it's a chunk of an entire generation who were taught about America Teh Debbil by the likes of Howard Zinn and his devotees.

They called themselves refugees, perhaps they were exiles.
