Not a thing wrong with it. It's history....Just like MLK is history for the colored folks.

I don't know exactly why, but the black people of the world are offended by the rebel flag. I think they look at it as whites being bad, racial, etc... But it's ok for them to do their "things." Wonder why that is?

OK. I did some checking & what it boils down to is that the rebel flag was the flag of the south. And the negroes get mad at it because of what it stood for. It meant that the south believed in having slaves! And that's what all the flim-flam is about!

i beg too differ, the flag did not stand for slavery. it was for states rights . the north wanted to tell the south what to do and how to do it. today we have the same problem there are no southern news papers owned by people of the south
(that i know of ) and they only print what they want you to know . believe nothing you read and only half of what you see. today if you fly a rebel flag you are a redneck . this is what the blacks say .I say if you have the guts to fly one today that tells me your are proud and not ashamed of where you come from .

i think the rebel flag does stands for kkk.because most people with a rebel flag is poor white tailer trash with their front teeth missing,and riding around in a old fucked up pickup truck.and why you always see poor white people with rebel flags and you dont see the rich ones with that shit?

NOT ALL FLAG FLYERS ARE HATERS I DO NOT SUPPORT THE KKK NOR WILL I . THE BLACKS HAVE SIGNS THAT STAND FOR HATE SHOULD WE BAN THEM ? THE REBEL FLAG AND THE KKK ARE TWO DIFFRENT THINGS . YES THERE ARE THOSE THAT USE THE FLAG OUT OF HATE BUT DONT JUDGE US ALL . LOOK AT HISTORY BLACKS WERE SLAVE OWNERS TOO . BLACKS FOUGHT FOR DIXIE TOO
READ UP ON YOUR HISTORY AND FIND THE TRUTH.
NO THEY WERE NOT MADE TO FIGHT THEY DID NOT WANT CHANGE .

My opinion:
The North beat the shit out of the South in the Civil War.
Had the South won, they could wave their flag as much as they want. However, that isn't reality.
I realize that the flag is a "symbol of your past."
But your past itself symbolizes hate and extreme elitism.
If you don't want to be crushed by the typical southern stereotype of a drunken, angry, racist redneck, then don't be the damn stereotype.

No. I'm not saying that all southerners are pro-slavery.

But I'm just saying that, as you hang the flag, you should know what image you're putting out.

I just don't understand what part of southern history everyone is so proud about. Sure, it's nice to be fond of your roots, but I seem to see more representation of the "rebel" flag than any other historical symbol (aside from the American flag, of course).

I was born in the south and lived half of my childhood there.
I understand both views.
Now, of course, you've had more experience living in the south, and I understand your point.
I'm just saying that I've witnessed the reflection shown by flying the "rebel flag," and it just isn't the image I would want to put out.

But I guess if you're that gung-ho about it, power to you.
