FFS I never said the North was perfect. Hell I wasnt even talking to you, I was talking to a poster that is promoting revisionist history. She was trying to say that slaves were rarely treated bad. I dont know about you but when someone starts saying that slave owners treated their slaves good I think of that AS DEFENDING SLAVERY.
But dont pretend that there were not people that were against enslaving black people at that time. Or that it would be impossible for people living then to see slavery for what it was, ****ed up.
Let's face it folks, whatever historical meaning this flag has, it has been adopted by a certain class that leans towards intolerance and racist views. The swastika also had historical meaning, and indeed one that should not be forgotten, but it is banned in Europe, for the same reasons the Confederate flag should be banned in the US, or at least relegated to museums that will explain its historical meaning. Raising it over public buildings sends a regressive and dysfunctional signal to society.
