    People can try to defend the confederate flag all they want. But most people still associate it with slavery, treason and racism. So, if someone supposedly doesn't support those things, why would they even want to be tied with something that is going depict them as being so?

    Most people who mis-associate the meaning are wrong then. The funny thing about symbols and outsiders is that outsiders don't get to assign motives to the group and claim any kind of accuracy, what you can go on is the stated goals by people in the group, and when you look through this thread you see common factors: honor, patriotism, love of country including it's stated ideals, and a regret that the union has ignored them in favor of expanding federal powers that are not contained in the founding writings or the U.S. constitution.

    So, there is what outsiders say, then there is the truth.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Nothing changes the fact that the flag is a symbol of treason, slavery and racism even if it also a symbol of honor, patriotism and state's rights.

    You polled people to see what they think, I'm not even going to expand on the fact that currently that disagrees with you on the original issue. You can't ask people for their opinions then make a declarative statement like above and be taken seriously. Finally, it doesn't matter what outsiders think of southern culture, we have our ways, we've made our mistakes, and still hold dear things that many of our countrymen have turned their backs on. We get to assign our meanings and make our amends, not you.

    exactly, the problem is some people understand how facts work and dont let their own personally bias dismiss them.

    This could also be said of the stubborn biases of people who think they understand the issue of the confederate flag and hide behind appeal to populism within their own community. People these days arrogantly think that they and they alone control the paradigms of modern society.
