Nadja, so the point that you are making is a point about free speech- which is fine. You are free to walk around with a Confederate flag bumper sticker. You can have a KKK T-shirt. You can flip the Blood or Crip gang sign, if you wish. You can cut your mustache at the corners, part your hair and "Seig Heil" all you wish. This is all free speech. It's protected under the law. No one is protesting that. But you can't go out and buy a Georgia license plate with a Nazi symbol on it- even though some German citizens may have admired the fact that Germany fought their way into becoming a world power. You can't get a "Black Panther Party" license plate- even though they were very instrumental in the efforts of African-Americans' fight for civil rights. You know why? Because the state of Georgia would never endorse that history. But the history of those who fought and died for the continuance of the slave trade is OK?

Too bad it was blacks selling blacks in Africa..I don't know what you people are complaining about with all the free stuff you get you wouldn't even survive if you actually had to work for everything like the white people do
