So much ado about nothing. It smells of desperation to appease, in my opinion.
I stand for the right of every American individual to fly whatever silly flag that they want. I also assert that public buildings should not fly a flag that represents the Confederacy unless its a museum of some sort. This is the USA not the CSA.
If there is a legit purpose for flying a confederate flag or any other enemies flags on State property it should still meet the requirements in the US Flag Code. But it isnt just up to the State what flags they can fly on their public buildings. The US Flag Code has some definite restrictions. After all no actual American wants to see a unpatriotic flag display that they payed for through taxes.
The Confederate Battle Flag does not belong on the State Flag Pole because the Civil War is over, no more battle is occurring, and the CSA (a long defunct nation) does not require official representation on the state flag pole.
Has nothing to do with improving race relations.... as it will not do that in any way.
