I’ll let other people post videos featuring famous “talking heads” talking about what’s properly identified as the “Virginia Battle Flag” and popularly (but incorrectly) called “the Confederate flag” or the “Stars and Bars”. I’m going to post this piece made by one Ronnie C. Rouse that I stumbled into on Facebook. Yes, it’s as off-the-cuff and rough around the edges as every other YouTube rant, but but I like Ronnie C’s message and style, so I’m giving him some love by sharing his video:

I don’t think the cops would’ve offered Dajerria Becton — she’s the 15-year-old girl who got thrown to the ground and pinned there by (thankfully) ex-police officer Eric Casebolt at the now-infamous pool party in McKinney, Texas — some Burger King? I have my doubts.
You white kids go have your fun #CrimingWhileWhite. I’m going to go brush up on the advice in the videos below…
I inherited a lot of Dad’s qualities. He loved to speak in public, work the room, tell jokes and stories, and hold court. He was driven to set things right and make things better. He loved helping people. And most of all, he loved putting the “Asian” in “Rabelaisian”. He was Dr. Guillermo O’Hara de Villa, Jr., he was my Dad, and I owe what I am to him. He passed away in 2006, but he’s still with us in spirit.
Christopher Lee’s many villain roles: Count Dooku and Saruman (top row), and Scaramanga and Lord Summerisle from The Wicker Man (bottow row).
R.I.P. Christopher Lee, wonderfully evil movie villain, who recently died at the age of 93. You younger folks know him as Count Dooku from Star Wars: The Lesser Trilogy and Saruman from the Lord of the Rings films (he’s the only LOTR cast member to have actually met Tolkien), but he’s been a movie villain for far longer. He played characters like Dracula and Fu Manchu long before the age of CGI, and you should check him out as a superfluously-nippled Bond villain Francisco Scaramanga in The Man with the Golden Gun (which was referenced in the Kamp Krusty Simpsons episode) and virgin-sacrificing pagan in The Wicker Man, which he considered to be his best film.
In tribute to him, here’s the scene from The Wicker Man where we get introduced to Lee’s character, Lord Summerisle:
