Chef and Jimbo are debating whether the flag of South Park, which depicts four white figures lynching a black figure, should be kept. Jimbo wants to keep the flag out of tradition, while Chef feels it's a racist symbol. As the debate spreads through the town, the mayor backs out of making a judgment, saying the issue will be decided by a debate held by the schoolchildren. This pits Wendy and Cartman, who want it changed, against Stan, Kyle and Kenny, who don't see anything wrong with the flag as it is. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <>

A new record!
29 June 2018 | by ericstevensonSee all my reviews

I would just like to let everybody know that I set a new record for most reviews written on the IMDb in one day! Well, a personal record. This is my 15th review for the day! I know it's probably not a world record, but it's at least something. Once again, I had no idea this episode even existed. I guess it's not one of the most memorable ones.

This episode features Chef wanting the South Park flag to be changed. The funniest part is probably when Chef mentions a monk who set himself on fire to protest violence in the 1960's and he says he'll do the same. So he sets a monk on fire. The resolution they have with the flag is very funny too. We do in fact learn a nice if weird lesson about racism. ***1/2
