It was about views that weren't getting along. If the north were so against it, then why did the north buy all of the cotton grown and farmed by the slaves. Its all a circle.
The rebel flag is properly named the confederate flag because of the civil war which was fought based on slavery. Seeing as this is a fact I'm not sure how you can say that it had nothing to do with racism. Also, SOME of the founding fathers had slaves. The majority did not own slaves and did not agree with slavery as well. It was, however, too big of an issue to address and work out at the same time you are trying to create a new idea of a free nation. Saying that "the north did business with slave owners" is pointless because at the time it was legal to own slaves. Does that make it right? I really hope you would say no. However, same as today, business people looked at the bottom line and if it was cheaper and legal to buy from slave ran farms then so be it.

It can also be a symbol of what was, and how the United states has changed to what we have today. It can be debated, people see things differently but in fact it truly is history..meaning its the past

Yep, and I'm sick and tired of hearing people say that I'm racist because I support the rebel flag. Some people just want to stay true to their southern heritage. If you don't like it, don't try to tell me what I am and what I ain't and get over it

kinda goes along the lines of certain tattoos, or tattoos in general. People think I am a biker and I even had a lady give me her husbands card, he was a preacher that reforms bikers LOL. Pretty funny because she had no idea what I did for a living...I just let her go

It doesn't mean you are racist and I never said you were. It really goes more along the lines of wanting to leave the union than anything else. Also, another thing I never understood was what exactly Southern Heritage is. I have family in the south and most of the things they do or believe in is the same as just about anywhere else in the US. They eat more of certain foods like crawfish but as far as actions go there is no difference. Even without the negative connotations people don't go waving around the Betty Ross flag because there is no point. We are not 13 colonies today and it makes it seem that you are not willing to accept the other states as part of your nation. Some states, such as Alaska, still have portions of their population who don't want to be part of the US and there are a lot of people who feel their state or people from their part of the country are better than others.

What kind of tattoo's do you have? I can never think of that many things I would want to get a tattoo of but there are so many that are just bad ass. We should start a "Post pics of your tattoo's thread".

Southern Heritage is just a way of life. You can't really explain it. And Yes, I accept the other states as part of the union. The only state I'd love to kick off would be California. I loved it when I would go visit my sister but they are one damn problem after another.

Not to burst anyone's bubble, but those of you who went to northern schools probably didn't see this picture in your history books.
I'm not directly posting it because of the content, but if you think the confederate flag is racist, you may want to have a click of the link.

Exactly. People bitch about the south being racist and bad people...well if you just come down here you'll see for a while that you'll meet people like no where else, and the ones that will give you the shirt off their back are way more plentiful
