Default Re: Confederate Flag Decal

Confederate Flag will always been seen negative by people who are not educated...I was raised in South Carolina...I proudly have a Confederate Flag on my truck, on my house, in my office...my neighbors are black...the dad asked me about it one day, saying do you represent hate or is there other reasons, I told him of where I came from and he said I like when people hold on to their roots....Its a you known what its about or you are an uneducated person, or a person that is ignorant and uses it as hate when it was nothing more than a battle flag just as that is of the United States....

I for one was born in Beaufort, SC and lived the first few years of my life in Texas. So if I wished to, I could fly the Confederate Battle Flag and the Texas Flag with a clear conscience. I just choose not to. As others have stated, there is nothing racist about the battle flag. The Civil War was not originally about slavery but economics (and States rights - added content). It was made an anti-slavery war later by President Lincoln.

Misuse of the flag has been a problem but so has race bating by certain parties interested in continuing divisiveness and their pay checks (lawyers and others) with law suits. Ignorance by many is also a part of the problem but that can be fixed with education.

Anyway, to the OP, good luck with the sticker and all. I personally would have chosen a plate since they tend to be more durable but whatever floats your boat.

I'm half asian and I was born in Ohio but I have a Confederate flag hanging in my room.
The flag represents what was the Confederacy. The Confederacy wanted to leave the union because they wanted more states rights. That is what I see the flag representing. I strongly believe in states rights so that is why I have a Confederate flag, plus I like the southern/redneck way of life.

I glad to see someone else who sees it for what it actually represents.
I've gotten into arguments with people over this, the DUMB mASSES think it represents racism. It annoys me to no end when people are so ignorant of our own history.

A Confederate flag decal is a REALLY good idea when you are driving through East Point or College Park Atlanta. Make sure you get an extra big one to slap on the hood of your truck when you roll anywhere near South East D.C.

Uncle Dave just trying to help you out.

I know exactly what you are talking about.

Here lies the problem: You need not be worried about getting shot dead by each other. It's the ignant people that don't listen to intelligence and reason.

Take the Swastika: It dates back to 4000 BC. Only in the last 70 years has it been associated with ....well I don't need to get into history lesson, it's pretty obvious. But that is what it forever shall be now associated.

If you don't "agree" with American History that's just too bad.

Some what off topic but you have a point. If I remember correctly, it was an American Indian religious symbol and a national symbol for a European country, Sweden or Norway. Nazi Germany ruined it for them and everyone stopped using it.

That's a load of crap if you ask me.
But now days the minorities always get what they want because if they didn't it would be racist or hating.
