Candyman(inactive) Why is 'Dixie' considered racist? (104* d) RE: Why is 'Dixie' considered racist? 04 Jul 03


And then there's the issue of the Star of David, which has become the symbol of the Israeli state, yet was a symbol all Jews were forced to wear in Nazi Germany as a symbol to separate them from non-Jews. ertainly that symbol has a changed meaning.

Comparing the Star of David to the Confederate flag or the swastika is not a vlaid comparison. The Star of David has been used by Jews to symbolize the Jewish people and the Jewish religion for thousands of years. It was a symbol of pride for the Jews long before the Nazis came along. And the Nazis were not the first to force Jews to wear the Star so that they may be identified as Jews, it was a common practice in medieval Europe.
