I believe the term is "pyrrhic victory." Sure, I suppose it's a good thing that South Carolina -- and maybe other states will follow -- might remove the Confederate flag from its capital (that is, assuming the idea will get 2/3 yes votes in each legislative chamber.) Symbolism is symbolic, after all.
Call me a cynic, but I don't think racism and resentment will end with the last flop of the flag in the wind. Might even increase, given that, well, it's symbolic of stuff. It will if Rush has anything to say about it.
Either way, let's see how long it takes after the flag unflies for the Foxolimbeckians to claim, see, there's no racism, just like we've been saying. (Not long.)
Oh, and there's more good news: turns out anti-Semitism is over, too.
