Tell that peice of trash coach you people tarnished my state with to get to hell back to wherever he oozed from if he doesnt like the flag. What does he want to do? replace it with a rainbow flag that seems to be all the rage in our once proud capital. Just another reason to hate the GAYcocks.

You need to be educated on the war. There was alot more than you know. Slavery was not just a southern problem, and was WAY down the list on why the war broke out to begin with. Dont think the south is all to blame... that is yankee propaganda. Not opinion.

Haha Joe -
Getting back on this subject is a far reach, ya?

They'll never change. They Don't want to, and will pass this down to the next generation that is weak enough to accept this mentality.

The West is the Best, but I love this entire country we call "America!"

Amen, coach. This is a long time coming.
I grew up out west and have lived in the South for 7 years. The one thing I hear consistently is that the Confederate flag is about promoting slavery or racism. It's a Southern heritage thing. My take on it is this: If your "heritage" is hurtful to other people, then you should do away with it. There are plenty of other things to symbolize the South other than this flag that, to a lot of people, symbolizes a very painful part of this country's history.
And for a symbol that's so devisive to be flying over a state capital in 2007 is ridiculous and shameful.
