    • Dean Iverson \"sostain\" ..are you kidding me? Why don\'t you learn to spell before delving into American history. The Confederate battle flag, under which roughly half the 600000 deaths in the conflict occurred.. all American, is square. The abomination you have pictured is the redneck flag of the 20thC. The Confederate battle flag is part of American and world military history by definition. Period. No ignoramus, no group of ignoramuses, no revisionists will ever change that.

    • David Arnold This Great Flag is History not hate.The truth about this war is already distorted and often down right lied about.Our schools teach only partial truths anout the cause of the war to our children, even back in my era.The truth should be told,What can be learned from a rewritten history? Keep it and praise those who gave their lives for that Flag.Tell the truth.

    • Roy Roberson The flag is a very important part of our past. I don\'t see how it could be offensive to people these days. Most public places don\'t fly it anymore. I keep one in my home. This way I can preserve my heritage without offending anyone.

    • Robert Bonner Miss-informed people, blinded with hate people relate this flag to slavery and hate, it was designed to know who was who on the battlefield. Slavery was started and allowed under another banner that is flown everywhere in this country!

        Non whites tend to hold to there preferences in life as do whites Scotty on Mark? So get over it. We are all entitled to opinion, and as I see it both sides are still throwing punches. You cant legislate morality...Maybe its next in line for a hefty tax...

        Joe is entitled to his opinions as are you guys Scotty on Mark. The confederate flag wasnt flown on the ships transporting prisoners from Africa. The US Flag was. You say he thinks of it to intimidate non whites or as white pride. I suppose your picture of you 2 fudge packers doesnt intimidate non gays or suggest gay pride huh...LOL Your minds are week and you used google and a little fancy word structure to try and belittle Joe. I say go fuck yourselves some more...LOL

    • Wayne Chambers The confederate flag has nothing to do with slavery. Before you start making comments about anything you need to do your homework. And it sure as hell nothing to do abut racism.

    • MARVIN TILLMAN There are alot of misguided people black and white. If they would look into the true history of this flag and what it means. There are many Dixie Flags. But this flag they are using is the Dixie Battle Flag, meaning they are at war. But with who? The war is over and they lost. The loser takes down their flag. If they would use the original flag then they would have a good gripe that they are showing their heritage. But the Dixie Battle Flag is taken up by every white racist hate group in america, to symbolize white hatred towards others and that the war is not over

    • MARVIN TILLMAN There are many misguided people out there. If they look at the true meaning behind the Dixie battle flag, it's their war flag. meaning they are still at war. They lost the war and it's over. If they it's going to be a representation of the South and it's heritage, then they should to trying to use the original flag instead of the battle flag which meaning racist groups sees at their flag of representation

      Every American should be able to fly their flags as long as they are not offensive. The Southern flags are not offensive. And I am a Yankee who married a Southern man.

      I think if anyone has a problem with this flag they need a history lesson! Its a symbol of southern heritage and too many simple minded people use it as a tool in their own ignorant racial ideology ranting!

      I\'m proud to be from the south, Born and breed a rebel and dang happy to where my colors on my back. Just to be from the south and thank God above and let my ancestors rest easy up in Heaven for the cause. some people might try to miss use the flag as something worst than it really is. So back off the racial crap because it isn\'t . our confederate flag flies over many miles , up to the mass ion Dixon line. Long live the rebel flag and what it really meant. it don\'t get to much hotter than the south. Sincerely David C.

      I honestly don\'t understand why the confederate flag is symbolized as a racist symbol. It was the colors used to distinguish good from bad among-st the southern ranks. Which yes I totally understand the the south is know best for its support of slavery, With that being said how does the flag stand for slavery or racism??? Yes there are indeed people who use it as such; Which is sad. But for those who believe that the \"Rebel\" flag is just THAT a flag that represented a group of people that a large portion of came from the southern half of are amazing country. So what its a flag get over it. I live by the history. If you want to call me a racist or whatever you want to FINE, the Confederate Flag will fly in my front yard till the day I die. In honor of my family members that took part in the CIVIL WAR
