    Actually, the inspiration for the Prussian designer of the Stars and Bars was the flag of Austria:

    And why do I get the sense the intent of my post flew right over your head?

    "Some say the design was modeled as well on the Austrian flag (the designer was a Prussian)."

    And pray tell, what point do you think I missed?

    Okay, you win. And some would say the Confederate Battle Flag was modeled on the Cross of St. Andrews. Others say it represents hate and racism. Is the fog lifting yet so you can stop focusing on the fluff and see what my real point was?

    You could say literally all of these same things about the KKK. Does that mean they should be allowed to have a federal or state monument and a flag?

    At the end of the day, the Panthers are nothing more than a fringe radical group. They don't speak for a majority of African Americans. They barely even speak for a minority.

    The C.S.A. was something different entirely. If you have Southern ancestry, you ancestors were a part of it, and many of them probably fought or died in defense of it. It is an inescapable aspect of Southern history. There is really no reason why that history should necessarily be a source of shame, and nothing else.

    This isn't about winning.
    This is about accuracy.
    The flag didn't represent hate. That is spin that needs to be corrected.

    So let me ask.
    When the black folks were sold into slavery (which was legal) was that an act of racism or just legal commerce? Hell, it is even happening in today's day and age.
    When black folks in this country owned slaves was that racism?
    When the Black Moors captured and enslaved over a million white folks, was that racism?

    Even though folks did think less of slaves, slavery wasn't based on hate or racism and neither was the desire to keep a legal product legal.

    Hyperbolic nonsense.
