    SC Confederate Flag Taken Down From State Capitol in South Carolina

    Good.

    Confederate Flag Taken Down From State Capitol in South Carolina - ABC News

    South Carolina made history today by removing the Confederate flag from its post on the state Capitol grounds in Columbia. Cheers of "U.S.A." erupted as the color guard removed the flag and folded it.

    No.

    But at least the state will no longer fly a flag that says "We hate niggers".

    It will be near-Utopia like the black Americans enjoy in every major city in the North.

    Needed to happen, but in the end it does not solve much. Remove all the flags and racism will still exist tomorrow.

    Didn't realize the confederate flag represented that... Didn't Lincoln support a law in Chicago the essential made it illegal to be a black citizen in Chicago???

    You realize that NOBODY is arguing this right. So you're making fun of an argument that was never made. How does that feel? Your comment reads like a toddler stomping his feet after somebody took his toy.

    The flag doesnt say that. YOU say that. Some make it mean that. The Confederate flag no more means that than the US flag does.

    Wrong, this point needs to be brought up.

    I agree that the State should not be flying this flag at the capital. I get it. But these arguments for pressure on private businesses and old Confederate burial grounds brings up the point for us. Remove all the flags, even go so far as to outlaw, and you are left with the conclusion that racial hatred is not cured. Only education does this, which will be submarined by efforts to rewrite it.
