He says it is not treason and you say that you, SCOTUS and the US Government disagree and then go on to say that sCOTUS declared that it is treason in several court cases. If you are nitpicking about the slavery and racism part you could just say so. So you are saying that SCOTUS and the US Government thinks that the Confederate Flag is a symbol of treason then?Originally Posted by Caine
I agree that colonial and later American whites viewed blacks to be inferior... I have never and will never agree that slavery of Africans was BASED on racism, and I do not nor ever will believe that the confederate flag is a symbol of treason, slavery, or racism.

It actually is treason. The Supreme Court declared as much in several court cases that have been ignored at length here.

And even if so... does a case about the Confederacies actions make all symbols of the Confederate treasonous? Is the Chinese flag one of Crimes against Human Rights? Is the Iranian flag one of sexism? Is that it? One action decides the entirety of the symbol?
