    This is just another example of Northerners wanting to deprive Southerners of their unique culture and heritage.
    A culture of whips, chains and raping African women. Gee lets waive a flag and celebrate.

    A flag is nothing more than a piece of cloth. The symbolism is whatever we decide to ascribe to it. I don't know many people who fly the confederate flag (it might surprie you but it's quite rare in Texas, normally what you see here is the Texas state flag which is our own unique heritage), but the ones I have seen, the people having them aren't doing so because they're racist.... it's more a southern pride thing.

    And there's a lot more to the south than whips, chains, and raping african women. That's like saying the American flag is all about slaughtering indians, stealing land from Mexico, and dropping nuclear bombs on the Japanese. Nobody is perfect, doesn't mean you can't be proud of where you come from.

    It's an odd sense of patriotism when someone waives a flag representing a failed rebellion.

    It's odd of you to call it patriotism. It's southern pride, just like I said. Nothing wrong with being proud of where you come from.

    How about murdering innocent Black people in a church?

    Do you think that anyone should be proud of that?

    Fill us in.





    Some people on this planet see racism for what it is.

    Others will ignore it until the end of time.

    But the racist Confederate flags that some states display will come down.

    Wait and see.

    No one can stop time and/or change.

    The clock is ticking.

    the swastika is a very cool symbol.. and it sucks the entire world is still under Hitlers power.


    What power does a dead man have over anything?

    Fill us in.



    You are out of touch with reality.

    You forgot treason.

    It does represent racism and slavery. That can't be white washed.

    And some people fan the flames of racism by accusing non-racists of being racist.

    Those people are the part of the problem - not the solution.
