Is the Confederate Flag a symbol of racism?

@ehBeth,
Kutteln, you get it (mainly) in Southern Germany, Switzerland and in (the state of) Saxony.
(In France, it's called tripes - tripes à la mode de Caen and tripes en brochette à la mode fertoise are culinary specialities in Normandy.)

@Walter Hinteler,
Ah, tripes. I recall an a2k question from long ago that asked about taking a tripe to Canada. I'm not sure he ever came back.

@Walter Hinteler,
so in Frace they serve tripes with a dip of ice cream?

See ehbeth, it WAS southern germany. Most of our Pa Dutchy Pietists and Anabaptist hail from the Palatinate (via a few other countries on the way)

I guess the original point to all this is that we don't need the negative reminders to honor southern traditions, there are plenty of good ones.

@coldjoint,
try not to be so hard on yourselves. You can cure being belligerent fools by indulging in education.

Of course, education means you will be exposed to many sides of an issue, and you will have to learn what FACTS are.

The stuff below, produced near my mother's birth place in Aveyron, is pretty ugly to look at, but it tastes wonderful:

@Walter Hinteler,
Aligo... Blast from the past. Mom use to make that and I totally forgot about it.

Tripous is made of calf rumen and reticulum, ie technically it's the stomach, not the intestine. I don't know what the tripes de Caen are made of.

Aligot... Mom used to cook that and I had totally forgotten. Easy to do too. Thanks!

Panse, feuillet, bonnet and caillette (if I translated correctly) - I do prefer an andouillette (or an andouille in other regions).

@Walter Hinteler,
So it's the same as tripous, the ruminant "4 stomachs".

I am an andouille lover too... Smile "Andouille" is also old fashioned slang for "dunce", as in (mn 3:00):

Now look what you got me into, I have an excuse to look up words and recipes.

First and only time I've had tripe it was a new york city restaurant's special dish. I only ate half of the dish, sort of a stew, but it was in a pretty big bowl. I went there with Roberta and Diane, both of a2k, in the week I met them both. That restaurant, Pierre au Tunnel, was some year(s) later the scene of another small a2k get together, often noted for some excitement happening. (If you know me at all, you know I have restaurant memory and meal memory tabs in my brain.)

OK, back to the confederate flag, a matter I've been perplexed by. More on that in another post.
