Now The Symbol Of New Orleans Is Considered Racist

091613_fleur-de-lis-fence730_6961_pbcThe fleur de lis, a French symbol used by royal families dating back to the 13th century, and emblazoned on the New Orleans Saints helmet, is now being called a symbol of slavery, drawing comparisons to the recent uproar against the Confederate battle flag.

“As an African I find it painful, and I think people whose ancestors were enslaved here may feel it even harder than I do as an African,” said slave historian Dr. Ibrahima Seck to WWLTV.

He connects the usage of the fleur de lis, to “code noir,” or black code, which was adopted in Louisiana in 1724, and used to govern the state’s slave population.

    You know, another of those I’m offended people who don’t know their history, And don’t know about current events and current slavery in Islam. Sharia would make him a slave holder, or dead.

    Are you kidding? I agree with Thomas Goss. I am so sick of all the complaining. Worry about something worthy….like feeding the starving children in the USA. Help someone find a job. I’m Irish and I know what my ancestors went through…guess what we got over it and became stronger for it!!!!

    So, now, the super elite brainiacs in the Democrat Party believe the “fleur de lis” is a racist symbol? Well, considering the symbol of the Democrat Party is a jackass. . .

      Dave, Love that statement. We had a much more peaceful country before Political Correctness, so let’s all stop being politically correct, I have.

      • Dave In Arizona

        Thank you. I try to be. I love the sound of liberal / progressive heads imploding.

    Surprise, surprise, surprise ….. this radical claim is a part of the radical left along with the NAACP and their drones to assist the UN Agenda 21 program and allow the commies to take over. How else would the radical element of the NAACP get everything they demand …… social justice (i.e. communism).

    the fleur de lis is a perfect design for you to shove up your ass, some (far to many) people can find fault in anything. I personally Find it offensive that the LGBT have taken GOD,s sign of renewal (the rainbow) as their symbol.

    “As an African I find it painful, and I think people whose ancestors were enslaved here may feel it even harder than I do as an African,” said slave historian Dr. Ibrahima Seck to WWLTV. She is not AFRICAN.. she is AMERICAN. I find her attitude insulting and disgraceful, as a historian who is supposed to be impartial and unbiased. IF she wants to Identify as an AFRICAN, then she can go back to AFRICA.

    Those who want to fundamentally change our country will seek any opportunity to try to stir up trouble, that furthers their cause. This nonsense has got to stop before our country falls off the planet.

  • curtmavi38

    What in their minds are not racist and slavery. I can imagine that there is a lot that can be related to slavery since there was a lot of that going on in the world.
    But to think that everything is about slavery here in America is stupid. Not many people here in America at this time think about slavery , it’s time we put all this nonsense to bed and go on with our lives. Black people have been liberated for years, now it is time they make the best of life like all the rest of us have to. meh.

  • Thomas Goss

    I wish ALL you protersters who don’t like things here in America would just GET THE HELL OUT. You don’t like the Confederate flag, and you got your way, you don’t like the Washington Red Skins and that is just about to change, you don’t like the fleur de lis, because it’s racist, your trampling on free speech by saying burning the American flag is free speech, well let me tell you, that isn’t speech that is expression, I don’t give a shit what the Supreme Court says. Your trampling on peoples religious beliefs to support gay marriage. WELL OBAMA AND EVERYTHING ABOUT HIM OFFENDS ME SO I WANT HIM GONE AND ALL IGAGES OF HIM DESTROYED, HOW DO YOU LIKE THAT.

    • The redhawk

      UUUUU-RAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BUT will these BONE HEADS INSIST that Oregon STOP calling themselves ” BEAVERS”???? specially the Women teams???

  • David Scuncio

    before the Flag BS this symbol was New Orleans Saints, has been for years
    tell this clown to FO your not going to change it

    • Dana Lind

      I agree, and the REDSKINS have had that name for over 70 years, so why is there a push to change it.. it’s being pushed because the isolationists who are trying to radicalize America are pushing it. I’m part Native American, and I find the names Redskin, Warrior, and other inferences of Native American culture validating. We are not being forgotten.
