Black Man Proud Of Confederate Flag

Black Man Proud Of Confederate Flag

There are 13 comments on the WTVC Chattanooga story from Mar 14, 2008, titled Black Man Proud Of Confederate Flag. In it, WTVC Chattanooga reports that:

“So here I am, trying to bring an understanding that there was folks who look like me who earned a place of honor and dignity here under this flag. And this flag is just as much for folks who look like me as any white man in the south land of America”

Many heads turned in Ringgold Wednesday when they saw an African-American man dressed in a Confederate soldier's uniform, carrying a Confederate flag. via WTVC Chattanooga

* H.K. Edgarton is very well known for his activism in support of the Confederate flag and Confederate memorials. His mother was a staunch Confederate supporter all of her life. She had a Confederate funeral that was very well attended.
* Recently, a 17 year old black guy from Vidalia, Georgia, wrote a letter to Senator Saxby Chamblis, to protest the ban on Confederate clothing at his school. Stephen Stafford, is an Eagle Scout and a good solid citizen.
* You have to realize, it was the yankees who invaded the south, burned the houses and crops, then molested and murdered southern slave women as well as other innocent civilians.

He's got the right idea. Another step against erasing social stigma. What people think it means isn't what it really represents.
It's the Confederate haters who work to divide America. Divide by north and south, by black and white, by rich and poor, by every division they can exploit to weaken our country. H.K. Edgarton is a uniter and a tireless one at that.

They don't call it the war of northern aggression for nothing. Them yankees raped a lot of black slave women. The black soldiers raped white women!

H.K. is a very serious and relavent historian.He points out more than just what happened in the war against northern aggression,he points out the political and social ramifications of the war crimes commited by the north that go on to this day.He is by far the better qualified to speak on race relations than the stalwart sellout,Obama.

I'm actually not going to post a serious comment on this one. No one's "right" about it.

Let the dude dress up as a Confederate. It will be of little solace to him when he's dragged to death behind a pickup truck by his "confederate bretheren".

This man's argument is far too subtle and intellectual for most to understand.

Please keep your knee-jerk reactions to yourselves.
