I in know way agree with all this ridiculousness but I do find this amusing.

    Also, if this is too close to being political feel free to shut the thread down.

    A little research seems to indicate that the term "Tar Heel" did take on prominence during the Civil War.  That's interesting because I always thought it was a revolutionary war thing.

    Also, there's no such thing as 'cancel culture'.  The people who use the term 'cancel culture' just call it 'consequences' when they boycott something they disagree with.

    I don't see it lasting too long either. But I bet it goes out in a blaze of glory.

    Well, you ignored half of the statement, and picked a super racist corporate logo to express your disagreement.  Neat.

    A quick google search on "Cancel culture" shows "About 1,870,000,000 results (0.40 seconds)"

    Hard to argue something doesn't exist if there are that many hits.

    You are nothing if not consistent.

    Your snarky one word "Neat" sentence is duly noted.  What a great tool of persuasion you have in your "pinnacle of morality" arsenal.

    Here is some snark for you:

    Pakfanistan.  Hmmm, your user name is offensive to ME.  I consider it to be super racist towards struggles of the Afghanistan people.  How do you plan to remedy this for ME and to appease me wholly in your morally superior ways?
