Listen, all you un-educated fools. The confederate flag was not a symbol of racism or slavery. It was a symbolf of the Nation The Southern States formed. DIXIE! Like the union states formed the North. Old Glory! Now It ticks me that ignorant KLANSMEN, use the rebel flag at there rallies, why dont they use there OWN FLAG, stop stealing ours  and using it. Same thing to those nazi-skins, use the GERMAN FLAG not the SWASTIKA, because the swastika was a symbol of good luck before you stole it and turned it into something EVIL! You all kill me with your stupidity. USE OR CREATE YOUR OWN FLAG. Dont Steal the symbol of the south for your own well being. You all should be strung up like traitors for dishonoring the south that way!

If you Yankees don't like our flag then stay up there in your cold and miserable homes.  Stay up there until you begin to follow your own liberal preachings of 'diversity of opinion'.  On one hand you prate how this world would be boring if we all acted,thought and looked alike, yet the first chance you get to go against your ideals you do so and point your crooked finger at the Southern man.  The  tactics employed by the Federal Government that now threaten Southern culture are the same devices that were used to destroy the American Indian, women, and used to profit from African enslavement.  You Yankees charge the Southern man with misdeeds and hatefullness, but can you honestly speak without being those things you claim to hate?

The confederate flag you speak of was not the official symbol of the south. You are refering to the confederate battle flag. There is a difference. And no , neither flag represents racism or slavery . Slavery was not the cause of the Civil War. People looking for a reason to be offended will always find something !

I totally agree with the above post, tis like exactly what I said. On another message board, I had a long debate about the confederate battle flag. Note: I did say battle flag, twas not the flag of the south. Yes, people in the south did have slaves, but that is not what mainly caused the war. People say the flag represents slavery because it was a part of the south (either that or they don't know that slavery didn't start the war), well, if you turn it around. This country is full with homophobes, racists, sexists, murders, pedofiles (sorry if I spelt that wrong), rapists, etc. So could I say the American flag is bad and represents all of those people?

Also remember that many free black men volunteered to fight in the civil war on the CONFEDERATE SIDE not for the north...but the south  and many lost their lives defending dixie
