I Wonder If Kids Even Know What It Means



And on a completely different note, the "Painter of Light" has died.

No, probably the kids today, most of them at least, have no real idea of the significance of the swastica and the horrible memories that it brings back to some. They don't know because they are not taught about the horrors of Hitler and WWII Germany, regarding the Jews, in school anymore. The present day horror of that situation is that if the Holocost is ever forgotten, it could then be allowed to be repeated by those unknowing people.

If I say " I'm not guilty" and NBC edits out the "not", do I get indicted or lynched by the mob?

A subdivision in Fort Worth is named Swastika. Swastika is in the historic Fairmount area. Real estate listings in that subdivision use the word Swastika. It's a benign word and symbol to me and one of my uncles executed a Nazi party member during WW2 with his .45.

10:19 hit the nail right on the head. One of the scariest "new waves" I've seen lately is that many young people think Hitler was "cool" and "strong." They actually belive he is a man who should be worshipped! Talk about being out of touch!

Native Americans used the symbol on blankets, before WW2.

Swastika = What one feels entering the Rhome City Limits on 287.

Maybe it was just a bunch of first grade kids with chalk making a "hop scotch" game......

Are you trying to say kids did this? I don't think kids pay attention to the racial makeup of a neighborhood.

Thomas Kincade was not 'the painter of light' although he called himself that .......he was more the painter of 'Motel Room Art' to me.
The artist commonly known as 'the painter of light 'was English painter JMW Turner.

You all are right, kids don't know the horrors of Nazi Germany. Thank goodness it has passed and not recurred. They just know about Iraq and Iran and the bombing of the World Trade Center. History occurs and passes and another horror takes its place. They shouldn't have to carry all these burdens.
Of course, they should study it and they do. Many classes have visited the center in Dallas.
Kids know more than you think and are more sympathetic than given credit for.

And on that note, Happy Easter to Barry & his blogophiles.

I don't know about the Native variety, but subcontinent Indians' use of the swastika predates the use of it by the Nazis. I believe it is a good luck symbol.

They probably think it's a police chalk outline of a kid wearing a hoodie.

Agreed, TF. But the symbol dates even further back than that, all the way to the Egyptians. The Nazi's were nothing but rip off artists.
