Intolerant but legal

Regarding the noose and Confederate flag that were displayed outside the Crops House on the Cal Poly campus, I read with interest what some supposedly educated adults had to say about this childish incident. By displaying these distasteful symbols those childish Cal Poly students showed their disrespect for others. But they did not break any laws.

A noose is just a rope. The Confederate flag is just a symbol of a failed rebellion. We can buy this reminder of failure on shirts, hats, and coffee cups all over the world. Why anyone would want to identify with this failed rebellion I do not understand. Do not give these people so much press.

The more attention some people get, the more they act out. I find it confusing that intolerant people demand tolerance from others.
