on the tv show "south park", the city after which the program is name was facing a flag problem, some people thought they should change the current flag due to some racist undertone in its design. Of course, some people, including the KKK, contested that the flag imagery should be kept since it is part of their history.
The first attempt at reconcialiation was to draw a smiley face on the hanged figure. It failed.

The final version was adopted after a school debate
pointed that violence was indeed part of their common
history but that the flag should be more

You can find the synopsis of episode 55, 'Chef Goes Nanners' here. As it is
with 'South Park', pretty little is sacred.

The poll that was taken was 2 for the flag,
two against the flag, and the rest undecided.
This was intended to poke fun at the recent flag
debates at the time (South Carolina, Georgia, Mississippi).
