The Stars & bars was indeed a battle flag along with representing the Confederate States of America. The unofficial flag of the CSA was the "Bonnie blue" flag....
You're right. I left out one important word in my statement, but it was not worth flaming over, so I dropped out. I meant the Con flag was not "merely" a battle flag but the future flag of the new nation.

The South lost, so it's moot anyway. Later.

<quoted text>What's your point?
Nobody is questioning the fact that there were slaves from about 1608 to 1865.
I guess point being is that they were actually listed in the census as people and not property as our public schools would have us believe.

Btw, there is more to Michigan that just Detroit. Even most Michiganders don't go there; not because it's that dangerous a place, but mostly because other than the sports stadiums there just isn't anything there worth seeing. We're considering giving it to Ohio or Canada or maybe Cuba.
Maybe downtown but not the inner city neighborhoods.

I was never a slave owner and y'all were never slaves. It's a moot point so quit complaining. Besides, my father and all 3 of his sons fought for the Stars and Stripes, not the Rebel Flag. I would not display the Confederate flag ANYWHERE, it is not our national ensign, it only a very sad and bloody part of our nation's history.

I would advise Georgia to replace the Confederate flag with the Stars and Stripes on their license plates and stand proud.

How about the flags our soldiers and cavalry went into battle with, during the French-Indian Wars? When we were killing thousands of Northeast and Midwest Indian tribes.....or, the battle flags worn by U.S. Cavalry in their slaughter of Native-American tribes throughout the West? We should be specific on what of our history,, we are to ignore?

Wow, the stupidity from 2 above.
You have no idea what the confederacy was even about. You assign slavery to it. While there was slavery in the south and confederacy, that was not the reason behind the confederacy. And the civil war was not a war over slavery, but, to those in the south it was a fight against northern aggression and power grabs by Lincoln that encroached on Amendment 10 states rights.
Lincoln knew exactly what he was doing goading the South into an armed conflict. This is why he moved troops into South Carolina.
Get a clue.
Wrong, Prez Lincoln was a Jayhawk! John Brown was the real Abe Lincoln

No, it's your actions & words & deeds which determine whether you're a bigot or not.

Flying a racist confederate symbol of slavery makes you a bigot.

Why are you ashamed of that?

If you're going to be a bigot, at least be a proud bigot so we all know who you are.

That makes it easier to know which truck to key in the parking lot at Walmart.

He just proved my point for me, he assumes everyone is a "bigot" without proof or knowledge whatsoever of the person he's talking about.

Fine, I'm a bigot then... whatever. I would rather be a "bigot" than an ignorant, worthless, lazy, pretentious, condescending, douchebag liberal any day.

At least a "bigot" isn't afraid to speak the truth unlike a piece of filth liberal who has ZERO convictions about anything and runs around with shit on their breath from all the ass kissing they do.

Having a confederate on your property or on your automobile is a code to communicate with others of the ilk.

It means one and/or several of the following:

I sleep with my sister.....and so can YOU!

Got beer? Have my wife for an hour! I'll watch!

Got meth? YOU Can spend some quality time with my daughter!

My underage daughter gets drunk for Daddy!

I married my first cousin!

Having the confederate flag waving outside of your home informs the public the home is full of losers.

Having a confederate flag flying outside of your home also means the folks living inside the home have not seen their genitals for decades because they're too fat!

Slabs of gut hanging over their waistline Just hanging as if they were slabs of beef hanging in a slaughterhouse.

Even though there are 10 people living in the home,an entire set of teeth doesn't exist among them.

The love of all things NASCAR is synonymous with incest..

Even if there's only one female living in a home with a confederate flag flying in the yard,there's a yeast infection existing in the home qualified to make enough bread to fill an entire semi trailer full of loaves.
