That was from Rolling Stone which is considered very "insightful" political commentary by many.

I thought they were a band or a magazine about bands. I guess it is the same reason people find sports newsmen like Keith Olberman to have "insightful political commentary."

RS has long been busy publishing political opinion pieces.

Yes, I know, but I was being purposefully obtuse. They also published the BS fake rape story at UVA. Why would people turn to RS for political commentary?

Jann Wenner doesn't exactly hide his political leanings. Although, P.J. O'Rourke has done a good bit of work for Rollingstone. He's pretty libertarian.

Why would people turn to a men's clothing forum for political commentary?

Rolling Stone has been reporting news and political commentary a lot longer than Fox, besides its pieces are produced by individual writers . Why would they be any less or more qualified than those of other msm news . If you are looking for news produced through an unbiased agency these days , well good luck. I don't turn to RS for political commentary but I do read it

“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.

Seck connects the usage of the fleur de lis, to “code noir,” or black code, which was adopted in Louisiana in 1724, to the policies to govern the state’s slave population, stating that when a slave caught running away, “would be taken before a court and the sentence would be being branded on one shoulder and with the fleur de lis, and then they would crop their ears.”

Makes sense, given that Klan members have long been an integral part of the 'aints' fan base.

That really brings me back. The paper bags, I mean, not branding slaves.

The tears on the guy on the right are brilliant.

These sorts of people - race baiters, not Saints fans - need to be rounded up an summarily executed to prevent their dumbness from infecting society.

Actually, Saints fans may well be appropriately included here...

The U S flag flew over the slave states prior to the civil war . Guess it gotta go
