                  • Context Matters

                    Just got done having a chat with a friend who has an app aimed at teaching history (for lack of a better description it's an interactive history textbook). His app had an image of a confederate flag in it, as you'd expect of anything that's trying to teach history, that same as a history text might have a Nazi Flag... guess what, his app was pulled.

                    Now I don't want to get into whether that flag represents slavery, southern tradition, white power or just state's rights. Can we all agree that there's a difference between removing the flag from a state capitol building and removing it from our history books?
