Activist Brands Flag Designed by 12-Year-Old Girl as ‘Racist’ – Because It Has a Chain

An equal rights campaigner has branded a flag designed by a 12-year-old girl as racist because it features a chain that could have been used in the slave trade.

    I’m surprised the BDSM crowd isn’t all over this flag.

    Making chains is a major part of iron-working and the Black Country had an international reputation for making high quality chain for a multitude of purposes including anchor chains for what at the time were giant ships, along with the anchors themselves.

    The 12year old is to be congratulated for her knowledge of the history of her local area.

    For more information search for chain making.

    (Just for info., The Black Country is to the West of Birmingham, rather than the North.)

    But the equal rights campaigner used the Roman alphabet, which was also used by most American slave owners and by the majority of the other nations that profited from the slave trade including England and Holland. To make matters worse, the Romans themselves kept slaves. So now who’s the racist, Massah Vernon?

    Until these “activists” are made fearful, this nonsense will continue.

      So now anything with a chain is a micro aggression by whites?
      He should tell his fellow SJW’s to stop committing so many crimes and maybe then they wouldn’t have a fear of chains.

    James O’Keefe went after his university for serving Lucky Charms on campus and won.
    We should start doing the same thing.

    “that could have been used in the slave trade”
    Agreed, but it could also have been used as a toilet chain, a bicycle chain, a gate chain, a safety chain…need I go on?
    What a wanker…
