It is not about race. My male and female friends are from across the ethnic spectrum of this beautiful world. So it is not about sexual attractiveness or exotic appeal of minority women, as I have many minority male friends from around this world. Of course that entered into the marriage part of it. I blame Tiger Lilly in the Disney Peter Pan feature length animation. I was very impressionable at an early age.
What it is about is truth and freedom; what it is about is historical respect and truth. And what it is about is the complete erasure of socialist, communist, Marxist, and any other tyrannical ideas, concepts, and collective systems from practical application ever in America.
As soon as I have manufactured it latter today, I will be wearing a Stars & Bars lapel pen. I'll take it off (maybe), or feel less need to wear it continuously, when we have reverted somewhat and changed America peacefully; or if we have, of necessity, replayed the general scenario of 1860-65 more successfully and without the sad slavery issue. And of course hopefully without the violence of war (more of a political movement for regional autonomy like the Navajo Nation has). I assure you, that it those sorrowful conditions reoccur, Americans will be surprised at the massive number of Black Americans in Southern (and other Liberty loving regions') uniforms.
