thats cuz its not raciest its a battle flag from a war. that is it. the flag and the war itself was not about slavery abe linchon said that himself. but yes they were freed after. but it still is not racist by any means.

i myself have one on my truck every once in awhile. i was born in tennessee. its more a south thing. although most people use it the wrong way and that is how people think it is racist.

Exactly.

The point is that those people using it 'the wrong way' have turned the perception of a proud symbol of southern heritage into an offensive racist symbol.

It's a shame, but unless you were raised in a cave you can't deny the stigma of a rebel flag on a pickup truck. To most it screams 'redneck racist'. All the guys I know with it on their trucks use the 'n' word constantly. Some of these guys are friends, some are just *******s. But the common theme is they fly the rebel flag to identify with each other... "we don't want no "n*****s around here"... ask 'em yourself.

Now I know some guys don't think of it that way at all, and some think it just looks cool. I'm just stating the tragic reality that's all, and it's a damn shame IMO.

I DO fly the Confederate flag as a symbol of my southern heritage. I do not have family that has ever owned a plantation (that I know of), nor do I support slavery. But what was done in the pasty, is exactly that---History. When I fly the Southern Cross, I have no thoughts of slavery or racism when i wear it/fly it, have it on the truck.

The confederate flag is merely a battle flag or a flag of the South. What meaning others put into is their business. So many people put those meanings into such as racism or slavery because of the negative connotations that the flag has had through the years such as the KKK and such. THAT is why people have negative feelings toward it. Because a group of radical people has used a Confederate War flag as "their" symbol.

Just my .02.

Point taken, and I think I've made mine. No further 'stirring up' necessary.

I guess the best way to put it---It represents a Southern "way of life". you know, hunting, fishing, etc.....
