There is an opinion piece on the Fox News web page by Sophia Nelson, a black woman whose ancestors were slaves.  Now I know some of the posters here think Fox News is all lies, but this was an opinion piece.  Among other things Ms Nelson says "A great nation does not run from its history. A great nation rises above its sins and flaws and learns from the past in order to build a brighter future."  I agree with her because indeed some of our nation's history includes wrong treatment of certain groups, Native Americans and slaves being the most obvious.  

What I don't understand about the latest"protest" regarding the Betsy Ross flag on a pair of shoes is this:  What is it that we are supposed to do?  We can't go back and "do it over" to make it right for the people who suffered unfair treatment, and it is neither right for people who didn't commit the "sins" to have to pay something to someone who hasn't been "sinned" against.  So other than getting publicity what is the motivation?
