    If You Hate the New Pride Flag, You're the Problem

    Last week in Philadelphia, as part of its month-long Pride celebrations, the city hoisted the rainbow flag on a pole outside City Hall. As people clapped and cheered, someone inevitably asked, “Wait, why is there a black and a brown stripe on there?” That person was right to ask why, because, well, black and brown stripes on the Pride rainbow flag are a new thing.

    Turns out, Amber Hikes, the head of Philadelphia’s Office of LGBT Affairs, approved her committee's decision to add the stripes as a way to give more visibility to LGBT+ people of color. This makes sense when you consider that Philadelphia has had some issues with racial discrimination over the past year. Throw in that there have long been issues of racial division and discrimination in the LGBT+ community nationwide for years, and it’s a good gesture. This person probably said, “OK, cool,” and moved on like everyone should.

    But of course, a lot of people didn’t. They complained that it breaks with tradition, that there’s no brown in a rainbow, and that it singles out people of color for special treatment. Listen, folks, get over yourselves. The flag is just a symbol of an idea, not an official organization or government, and based on some of the tacky uses for the American flag I’ve seen at Pride before, even that has never bothered you. Also, I can tell you this, if there was an official governing body for LGBT+ people, I certainly would have protested to the Symbols and Signs Committee when it decided to make the Babadook an icon. Really, guys? The Babadook? I can totally relate my search for acceptance to being a monster that kills the family dog (I know it’s a joke, guys … settle down).

    Many of you may have forgotten that during the ’80s, at the height of the AIDS epidemic, many Pride flags had a black stripe to represent the deaths in the community. Besides, we’ve seen so many variations of the Pride flag over the years, with stars, hearts, triangles, peace symbols, flowers, yada yada yada, what does it matter if we change it up some? If it’s really that important that you get to have your rainbow flag without the dark stripes, then fine, you can stick to the other one....

    Ah, the Jim Crow liberals show their true colors yet again.

    It doesn't take a lot of imagination to visualize the brown stripe relating to male on male sodomy.

    Interesting AsianTrumpSupporter I see this as the opposite.
    FINALLY maybe someone can explain to Liberals how it feels
    to want to preserve Southern History and keep Confederate flags and monuments "as is"
    while other people want to erase or revise history to be "politically correct".

    When the shoe is on the other foot....

    whitehall I didn't see that at all.
    And I am extremely creative and imaginative.
    You must imagine things that are beyond me because
    to me that is quite a stretch.

    The black stripe represents BDSM and the brown stripe represents scatophilia.

    Looks like a beach towel that was used to wipe someone's butt.
