Colin Kaepernick is Right: The Problem with Saluting the American Flag – Atlanta Black Star

For some Black people, saluting the American flag is becoming increasingly problematic. It forces you to conform to this collectivist, pro-‘Murica group-think that ignores everything wrong with what happens in this country in a feeble attempt to feel as if there isn’t a system in place that feeds like a vampire on your people. Saluting the flag is not bringing the dead back to life and it’s not correcting generations of state-sponsored oppression…no matter how badly some people delude themselves into believing that’s what it does.
