College stunt comes back to haunt her ….

Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams helped torch state flag during college protest


While in college in 1992, Abrams was one of the people in a group of protesters that set the state flag on fire. Now she is throwing her bonnet in the ring wanting to be the governor of the state she once hated.

It seems that there are boat loads of people out there whose past has come back to haunt them.

Can or should Abrams past foolishness be a factor in the race??  Yes and no. The only reason I say no is; the flag she helped burn had a Confederate flag as part of its design, which many thought it represented racism.


On the other side of the coin, there are people that thought/think just the opposite.

Modern display of the Confederate flag – Wikipedia

The display of flags used by and associated with the Confederate States of America …. The Confederate battle flag was added to the state flag of Mississippi in 1894 …. that the Confederate flag represented Southern pride rather than racism.
I guess we can call it a tossup. I agree with door # 2.
Here again, just like Kavanaugh, there are a lot of things kids do in college that they are ashamed of later in their lives.  Should their feet be held to the fire 20 years later??
One of my favorite observations is; the sins we commit when we are young and foolish, we pay for when we get older. 

In my opinion, we can not totally judge anyone by their indiscretions they committed in life, especially at an early age, unless it is a capital offense or a serious crime.

Most people mature when they get older and change their prospective on life.  Some fools never do. A tossup.

I wish the Georgia Peach good luck. Maybe she is the states best choice??
