Thread Name: Why is 'Dixie' considered racist?
Subject: RE: Why is 'Dixie' considered racist?
Over here the Confederate Flag generally just implies Country Music, and is probably less likely to be suspected of carrying an in-your-face message than the Stars and Stripes would be.
In fact a Union Jack can at times be more likely to give rise to worries that it might carry a racist message, thanks to the way it sometimes gets used.
Best set of verses for Dixie are surely A Horse Named Bill
