    Farrakhan: ‘We Need to Put the American Flag Down'

    Farrakhan: I Don't Get Debate Over Confederate Flag, 'We Need to Put the American Flag Down' - Breitbart

    the is the first thing I have heard on this issue that makes any sense. The confederate flag stood for the same thing the American flag stood for a few decades prior to the war. It only makes sense that both should be deemed "evil" in this new liberal utopia we live in.

    What does the NOI have to do with American liberalism?

    Farrakhan has a point. However, his rationale is disgustingly irrational as usual. I think the man has a death wish.

    The American flag represented the colonies that fought in the revolution, not slavery.

    He is insane, just like everyone who has a problem with the Confederate Flag.

    Farrakhan is a joke.

    A hateful joke.

    I'm assuming the OP wrongly implies the NOI is a liberal group due to their ties to militant, leftist groups in the past.

    America learned the error of its ways and it changed. The Confederacy died fighting, in part, for the right to enslave people.

    Now, if the Confederacy had won its independence it probably would have, in time, ended slavery on its own. It might be a country today in which everyone had equal rights and their flag represented a new and improved nation.

    But that isn't what happened. And thus the two flags can't be compared.

    Almost every southern state that signed a secession document sites slavery as the reason for it's secession. Sorry, you can't rewrite history when it has already been written and documented.

    What was one of the main reasons why the confederate states fought in the civil war?
