    Supposedly the Confederate flag is a symbol for southern pride.

    Pride of what? Slavery? Or a war that should have never happened but lead to the death nearly 1,000,000 people? Or Sherman's march to the sea that left the south defeated and destroyed and in ruins?

    I see little to be proud of.

    Well, you should have no pride in your knowledge of American History, thats for sure.


    The " Stars and Stripes ", the flag of the North flew for over 80 years while Slavery was legal.

    In fact, Lincoln didn't emancipate the slaves until 1863. Two years before the war ended.

    And he wasn't emancipating slaves in rhe South either.

    So the North only seemed to have an issue with slavery when the South chose to secede.

    I wonder if the British flag should be removed from all Government buildings in the UK ?

    Because that flag flew on many of the Slave ships that fereried over slaves to the new world.

    Spain and Portuguese ships also ferried slaves over. Such historical hatred and evil locked up in those flags, right ?

    The stars and stripes was not a battle flag defending slavery at any point.

    If your'e a shallow easily manipulated individual with a tenuous grasp on History I guess you could say that.

    Anyway, you posted a picture of a battle flag.

    Not the official flag of the Southern States

    YOU NEED to make a intelligent rebuttal instead of relying on shallow and irrelevant one lined statements.

    Your opinion isn't worth the bandwidth you just wasted posting it.

    If I'm " so wrong " then PROVE that I'm wrong.

    In your case it's not necessary. You obviously have no clue about the history surrounding the civil war.
