Good question, I would say a younger southern woman early 20's, in great shape, brunette hair, maybe drives a pickup truck.

The Union flag is just as racist as the Confederate flag, didn't the Irish ( majority ) New Yorkers burn slaves alive? ( research it, I think they did, don't get all snooty Yankee over this.)

As far as I know only one black person was burned during the NY Draft Riots, and all the blacks that were attacked or killed were free black men, not slaves. There was a lot of competition for work among the lower classes (blacks, Irish, etc) in NYC at that time and the whites (mostly Irish) were worried about a mass migration of blacks freed under the Emancipation Proclamation from the South into NY that would take their jobs.

I'm a snooty Yankee by birth and a snooty Southerner by choice.

The South wanted more state rights and less federal govt interference. The confederate flag is not about just slavery, civil rights groups are so touchy. Everything is so PC now, we give medals to every kid so they don't feel left out, this nation is becoming too soft.

The South wanted more states rights, to preserve the right to own slaves, and less federal govt interference, involving the right to own slaves. So, yes, the Confederate flag is just about the political self-determination and economic health of the agrarian economy of the South which depended on slavery.

The really inexplicable thing is that very, very few Southerners benefitted from slavery but so many were duped into supporting it, anyway. Kind of like, today, relatively few Southerners benefit from the Republican Party platform but a disproportionate number support it, anyway.

Don't forget, there were a lot of businesses in the North who depended on the South maintaining slavery to get adequate raw materials.
