    Looking into it a bit further, many German-Americans were hung for being pro-Union during the Civil War, or for being pro-Germany during WWI and WWII:

    Why do blacks get to be offended at a cartoon of a noose, but I don't? Since when are blacks the only people who ever were hung? I do not agree they get to own this symbol as their own as if no white person every suffered such a fate. How self-rightously presumptuous of them.

    Political comments belong in the West Mall. If your comment is about the political angle of sports, create a post there.

    Ok.

    I thought the comment was on point with the root of the problem. I'll defer to your judgment.

    I understand what you’re saying, but once a sports topic begins to take on political issues the conversation goes off track. Some folks on the sports forums deliberately avoid the West Mall for that very reason — they only want to talk sports and don’t want to see the political stuff. And they shouldn’t have to.

    Thanks.

    I cant believe Miss, of all places, has Leach and Kiffin coaching head-to-head in the same state. I admit I am a little jealous. Looks like fun
