Flag burning

Dear Editor

I saw in the news that the Proud Boys leader was arrested for burning a Black Lives Matter flag in Washington D.C. 

It’s OK to burn the American Flag because you have the right of free expression under the First Amendment, but burning a Black Lives Matter flag, well that’s another matter because it’s raciest.  Should you be arrested and put behind bars for burning a Black Lives Matter flag but not for burning the American flag?
