Budapest protest November 2014

While on a trip to Budapest I noticed a very significant number of guards, especially around the parliament building. As I was walking to the Budapest Jazz Club I heard what sounded like war drums and chanting. As I rounded a corner I noticed guards in clusters, then saw the collective silhouette of the crowd.

The cool thing about this city is that others will join you when you question their ignorance and racially charged decoration. Just because it’s still widely adopted in many southern states doesn’t mean it’s okay. This article (http://www.elon.edu/e-web/pendulum/Issues/2005/04_07/opinions/flag.xhtml) presents a pretty rational take on the whole...
