The Black Panthers have never existed as an independent nation within the borders of the United States. I don't see the Black Panthers to be a significant part of our history as a nation. There is no lesson to be learned from the display of a Black Panther flag.

    This is a silly thread. I voted, "no". We can't use racist sensitivities as an excuse to prevent our country from experiencing a future disaster. Man up and learn from the past. Don't ignore it just because it hurts your feelings. There is valuable insight offered from history.

    I voted neither in your poll.
    Neither is the answer I am hoping to see.

    Hope all you want.
    Neither is wrong because the Battle flag is relevant to the Memorial.

    since i believe strongly in federalism, i support the actions of each state and its people acting in their own interest.

    This would have been my answer, as well.

    I'll even go a bit further and say I won't support either of those flags being flown by a public institution in my own State...Colorado...but I do support the right of other States to decide for themselves.

    My opinion of their decision should hold no relevance to them.

    I should add that I didn't vote in the poll because of the ambiguity of the part about States.

    Anyone notice a resemblance and can tell me what each flag represents?

    If you support the government flying the confederate flag......-stars-and-bars-gifIf you support the government flying the confederate flag......-georgia-gif

    (Hint: The flag on the left represents hate and racism. The one on the right represents the state whose nickname is "The Peach State.")

    The flag was deliberately modeled on the U.S. flag, as the South claimed to be upholding the true heritage and intent of the Founders.
