Because they wish it can go back to the way it was a 100 yrs ago.That's why they wear confederate flag t-shirts,licenseplates,bumpers tickers,hats and windowstickers also lighters,complete ignorance;that's why white folks move or live in smaller towns like Holcomb and Hornerville Piggott and so on;Besides confederate flags are for fags PERIOD!!!!

Most of the white people living in cities(besides the south), and surrounding counties think that this is ignorant.

And yes most of the people waving confederate flags would jump at the chance to have slavery all over again.

The flag means your proud of your southern heritage. Nothing wrong with that.

Is there evidence that white people like the confederate flag more than other races do? What percentage of white folks like the confederate flag?

WHY DO BLACKS ALWAYS ACT LIKE THE FLAG WAS ABOUT SLAVERY LIKE THEY DIDNT TAKE HISTORY IN SCHOOL.SLAVERY WAS THE REASON FOR THE WAR NOT THE REASON FOR THE FLAG. WHY DO BLACKS LIKE WELFARE AND PLAY HE SLAVE AND PREDJUDICE CARD SO MUCH WHEN THEY GOT MORE ORGANIZATIONS SCHOLARSHIPS ETC WORKING FOR THEM THAN WHITES DO?

To some people the flag is a sign of respect to the men that fought and died in what turned out to be a bloody stupid war. Very few of the troops killed owned a single slave, in fact most were as poor as the slaves. The people that died were our great grandfathers and they deserve respect and the flag they died under deserves respect. While I don't own the flag or desire to own one I served my country in a time of war and would like to think it was so another person could fly any flag they wanted. The civil war happened thats a fact, right or wrong men died for a cause. Who knows a hundred years from now how people will think of our current war.

wasnt taking either side as the bootheel of missouri was nuetral during the civil war as far north as poplar bluff and cape and a lot of whites like chittlins watermelon and pigs feet due to economic woes of the area during the ivil war and have passed down through tradition along with sweet potatoe pie. collards, mustard greens,black berries,hog jowls,etc., as they were easily attained during times of financial hardship and became family and geographic traditions. Make sure you know what your talking about. Its also a known fact that some rednecks didnt try to get an education or use the one they had due to biggotous upbringing.

You are absolutely correct. Indians are proud of their heritage and traditions, blacks are proud of their African heritage evidenced by names and clothing colors, Italians are proud of their culture, and Southerners are proud of their heritage. To most of us it has nothing at all to do with race. In most areas of the south blacks have blended into the community and experience very little or no prejudice. For some reason Kennett seems to be unable to make that progress. I think there are many of both races contributing to the problem. The Confederate Flag is not the problem and it is unfortunate that "some" try to make it a symbol of racial strife.

Isn't it the symbol of a treasoness pseudo government?

The first thing come to my mind when I see a confederate flag or someone wearing it is hate for me and everyone not white;Because every white racist group or organization wears or display the confederate flag especially the KKK.So if you or your heritage don't feel that way why wear or display it

That's a fair point but let's look at it more closely. You don't refuse to wear red or blue simply because the Bloods and Crips do, do you? Both are colors represented those black criminal gangs but I don't advocate the colors be banned and neither do I assume you to be a criminal gang member if I see you wearing one of the colors. It would be simple-minded to make that connection and I think you'd have to agree that it is a simple-minded connection one makes when viewing the Confederate flag that way.

It can and is used as a symbol of hate but it can and is used equally used as a symbol of pride and respect for those who died in what many feel was a worthy and noble battle against a repressive government.

That's another fair point and we might also ask ourselves about the sensitivity of blacks to suggestions that they like other foods such as chitterlings, watermelons, etc. We also find that they are often "offended" at the suggestion that some resemble "monkeys." It's easy to offend people and even easier to become offended. As individuals, we must begin to give people the benefit of the doubt unless their behaviors consistently convince us they are purposely trying to harm us. Most aren't.

it seems so strange that blacks would be that interested in what whites think about them. it seems like that's all they ever think about,proving their better than we think they are i don't understand what difference it would make to them . what could they gain by proving to me their better than i am ,myself as a white person have no interest whatsoever in what a black person thinks of me .if they don't like me that's their problem not mine .stay out of my face if you don't like me, you can never force me to think you're better than i am, so why don't you stop your whining and get a life nobody cares alright you don't see me trying to get you to think im better do you because i just don't, care end of story

Oh, I don't know that that really represents the way you or blacks feel. Man's greatest need and the one that drives MOST of his behavior is the need to feel important. The pursuit of fulfillment of that need drives him to do some very noble and some very stupid things. As we generously work to fulfill the need of others to feel important, we often feel ourselves to be diminished in some way. It's a inner struggle of which many are not completely aware.

We've somehow managed to convince ourselves that the old expression "Nice guys finish last" true. Of course, it's only true some of the time. We should work harder at making others feel important. But, that takes a confidence in self that many do not possess (because of the cycle of human engagement).

You made some good points and some stupid ones. Let's move to a critique of the stupid ones:

We're not fighting in Iraq or Afghanistan because "some dundass in the Whitehouse had a bad day or year." We're fighting because Muslims are engaged in a holy war against the West and desire a caliphate. And, we're fighting because as they approach the development, deployment, and use of nuclear weapons, your very life is in danger. We're fighting there in a vain hope that we'll not have to fight them here.

They're here. We'll have to fight them here -- and there. We didn't start the war but we must finish it. If Obama doesn't have the heart to do so, perhaps Netanyahu will do the job for him. Soon.

Don't talk of things you know nothing of. The danger is that some other uninformed individual might believe you.
