I do not condone white supremacy in any way, shape or form, but if you are going to put the Confederate flag there, go ahead and put the U.S. flag as well since slavery, Jim Crow, and the genocide of Native Americans was condoned under it. While you are at it, throw the Christian cross in there, too. All manner of unspeakable bigotry has been conducted under the auspices od the church.

There is nothing we in the south have to apologize for. We got back up and went back to work and built our states to such a good place that thousands in the north want to come live here every day. And we welcome those who are decent people. We don't speak to the others unless it is required.

Now we sit here and watch people in Baltimore, Ferguson, Chicago, Michigan, San Jose, etc. acting like a third world country and thank our lucky stars we live where we do and don't have to be around such uncivilized people.
I went to Gettysburg and saw the monuments of those brave men of both sides north and south.. I see them as all Americans and it was a war that should not have been fought.. for what.. young kids on both sides fought... the tough mountain boys from both side fighting for what? It is a sad time for our country. I see myself as both a northerner and a southerner and a westerner.. This country still needs to heal.

And yes, a lot of Southerners really do hate Yankees. But then again, Yankees make it pretty easy to hate them.
I don't believe that at all.. we blend very well, northerners and southerners.. blacks, whites, hispanics. We are a great nation. Our leaders stink but we down here where the rubber meets the road, we all care for one another.

I can agree with this.

The Articles of Secession is a document that shows that slavery was a major factor in why the Confederate States wanted secession. Knowing that, this is why the Confederate flag is a reviled symbol among many. I don't like it.

Never heard the song before and certainly don't buy your logic.

If we have black, Latino, etc. pride celebrations, we should have them for whites, too -- who, after all, created most of civilization.

I guess I don't understand how one nut job warrants a discussion thread on this forum. Just like a nutty Muslim burning a flag or something.

Thousands of crazy leftists assaulting American Citizens simply because they do not agree with their politics? That is a discussion.
