the black country flag isn’t racist – it’s a symbol of struggle and pride

My home, the Black Country, is an area north of Birmingham many wouldn’t be able to point to on a map. It isn’t the most glamorous place in the UK – it served as inspiration for Mordor in Lord Of The Rings. And yes, our accent is arguably even worse than Brummie.But what we are proud of is our regional flag. After a competition in 2012, the flag, featuring a black, red and white background with a thick chain, represents our home and our heritage. It was designed by Gracie Sheppard, a 12-year-old schoolgirl from Stourbridge. It is celebrated and flown by Black Country locals.However, the newly elected Labour MP for Wolverhampton South-West, Eleanor Smith, does not share in this pride. For her, the flag represents racism.

south africans call for apartheid flag ban

The display of apartheid-era flags at recent protests in South Africa has led to fresh calls for the symbol to banned.The old flag, officially retired when white minority rule ended and the first democratic elections were held in 1994, was brandished by some protesters at a march against farm murders on Monday.The controversial demonstration was called after the murder last week of a white farmer in Klapmuts, a town in the Western Cape, Al Jazeera reports.Hundreds of mostly white protesters took to the streets in a campaign dubbed Black Monday, blocking a major highway to Johannesburg.Many on social media found the protest offensive, “not least because the flag is widely considered a painful symbol of apartheid”, Garreth Van Niekerk argues in Huffington Post South Africa.“Comparisons have

jay-z on colin kaepernick's nfl protest: 'it's not about the flag, it's about ju

JAY-Z is touring the country in support of what critics have hailed as one of his most honest albums to date, 4:44. While in Miami, Mr. Carter took a moment to clarify for anyone in the audience what exactly Colin Kaepernick’s protest is about.“I want you to understand when people are kneeling and putting their fist up what they’re doing, it’s not about a flag, it’s about justice, it’s about injustice,” JAY-Z said.In September, JAY-Z performed “Bam” with Damian Marley on Saturday Night Live wearing a custom Kaepernick jersey, and while he didn’t make any vocal statements about the former 49er quarterback then, he used his tour stop to cement his loyalty and support to Kaep.“That’s not a black or white thing, it’s a human issue. Everybody should feel the same way. If your 16-year-old child

what is the u.s. flag code?

President Donald Trump is continuing his attack against NFL players and other athletes who kneel in protest during the national anthem, saying such actions are disrespectful of "our country, flag and national anthem."Whether players' pregame protests are disrespectful, a form of free speech, or somewhere in between is a matter of debate. But the dispute has raised an important question: What are the rules regarding how Americans should treat the U.S. flag?The United States Code, a collection of all federal laws in the U.S., has a section dedicated to the flag — Title 4, Chapter 1 — sometimes called the "Flag Code." The Flag Code covers how the flag should be designed, whether it should be used in advertising, and how it ought to be displayed, among other subjects. The President has the pow

donald trump: objection to nfl protest 'not to do with race'

(MORRISTOWN, New Jersey) — President Donald Trump insisted Sunday that his opposition to NFL players kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality "has nothing to do with race" but has to do with "respect for our country and respect for our flag."Trump, who inflamed the sports world on Friday by saying players who protest police brutality during the Star Spangled Banner by refusing to stand or conducting other acts of defiance should be fired, reiterated Sunday that owners "should do something" about the protests.Trump, as he prepared to board Air Force One to return to Washington from New Jersey on Sunday, said he didn't think his comments Friday on players being fired or since have inflamed racial tensions. Trump said the players protesting the anthem were "very disresp

pinnacle of american politics reached as republicans give standing ovation to co

Donald Trump’s State of the Union speech is light on policy specifics and heavy on inspiring anecdotes. One of these anecdotes was a story about a 12-year-old who created a campaign to place flags on veterans’ graves. Trump naturally segued from this into a reference to the black NFL players who have knelt during the national anthem to protest racial inequality:
Preston’s reverence for those who have served our Nation reminds us why we salute our flag, why we put our hands on our hearts for the pledge of allegiance, and why we proudly stand for the national anthem.
As you can see above, the Republican caucus loved it. Thirty seconds of sustained, standing applause! Thirty seconds of self-congratulation for Republican achievement in the field of looking at the American flag during the nati

mha says one nation, one flag

The Centre today made it clear there is no provision in the Constitution for a separate flag for any state and the tricolour is the only flag for India.This comes after the Karnataka government initiated a move for a separate flag for the state with Chief Minister Siddaramaiah defending the step after it came under attack from rival parties."We are one nation, one flag. Legally there is no provision either for providing or prohibiting a separate flag for any state," a home ministry spokesperson said.Home ministry officials said Karnataka already has a flag which represents only the "people and not the government".That flag is not used in national ceremonies like Republic Day or Independence Day but on occasions like state foundation day, an official said.But the use of that flag was also c

bjp, cong-led opposition parties get ready for nov 8 face-off

Jaitley said he cannot remember a single step that the Congress-led governments took against black money. "It is understandable that it would never be on the political agenda of their leadership. I can understand their discomfort. If there is an ideological polarisation over a debate on November 8 over the issue of the pro-excess cash economy and anti-black money, then the BJP will definitely take it forward," Jaitley said.
The RSS-affiliated Swadeshi Jagaran Manch and Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh have also given protest calls. The Manch will hold a protest against the Centre's policies on October 29, while the Mazdoor Sangh will hold its protest on November 17.

fannie lou hamer at 100: speeches made her civil-rights icon

As many NFL players across the United States make the decision to kneel or face away from the flag as the National Anthem plays before their games, as part of a protest movement that began as a statement about the belief that the U.S. does not live up to its ideals for African-Americans, many have found new meaning in the words of an icon of an earlier wave of protest. Pundits like Charles Blow and Nina Turner have defended the athletes' right to protest by citing the late civil rights activist Fannie Lou Hamer, who said "every red stripe in that flag represents the black man's blood that has been shed."Hamer, who was born 100 years ago Friday — on Oct. 6, 1917 — was famous for her deeply honest speeches.Media50 Years Ago This Week: 'Individuals Marry, Not Races'Media50 Years Ago This Week

the unfortunate thing i have in common with colin kaepernick and heritier lumumb

When people of colour speak about racism, we are told that we are the problem.It's an almost universal experience – and this week, we're watching it unfold spectacularly on the global stage via the reaction of Donald Trump to the protests by black NFL players who have taken up the cause started by Colin Kaepernick.
Start of something big: Colin Kaepernick took to one knee during the American national anthem last season to show solidarity with the Black Lives Matter campaign. Photo: APKaepernick, a former NFL quarterback, started peacefully protesting racism and police brutality in 2016. He does so by kneeling as the American anthem is sung prior to the start of a game.

'skull and bones' is about pillaging your friends' ships

The demo I saw was entirely multiplayer, but not everyone's ship was the same: I could choose from a mid-size Brigantine; a ramming vessel; the Sloop-of-War, which is like the sniper of pirate ships with long-range cannons; or the tank ship, the Frigate, which is slow but powerful. Raiding ships is surprisingly well-suited to squad fights, and due to my Black Flag experience, I knew exactly what I was doing. Playing with other E3 attendees offered a glimpse of how everyone could pillage the high seas. I'm still waiting to see how Ubisoft is able to spin this spin-off (it plays almost identically to Black Flag ship battles) into something that can stand alone.Follow all the latest news from E3 2017 here!

playstation plus free games for august get explosive

We’re somehow already closing out July, which means that it’ll soon be time for another batch of free PlayStation Plus games.

they should stop their crying. they hate their country …

In late August 2016, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick explained that he was “not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.” A few months later, he was out of pro football, seemingly for good. Kaepernick’s blackballing by the NFL has been met by widespread outrage and even protests. But Kaepernick has also been called a coward and a traitor to his country, and it’s easy to go on social media and find people who call him much, much worse.
Kaepernick is far from the first athlete to lead a protest movement, and he’s also far from the first to face a racist backlash for doing so. Among his forebears are John Carlos and Tommie Smith, who raised black-gloved fists during their medal ceremony at the 1968 Olympic Games
