The Confederate Flag is a battle flag, it represents no legitimate country and is, therefore NO ONES "heritage". I get P_O'd when I see the Gadsden Flag waved beside this terrorist battle flag, a flag that IS part of our heritage. :-(

Unfortunately it is part of my heritage because my ancestors on both sides of my family were slave owners and believe me I'm not proud of it. I see the confederate flag as being nearly as bad as the Nazi flag. I don't get why people would want to strut around advertising that they're an anti-American loser.

I do genealogy and one of the interesting but also sad aspects of that is that I've found an actual interview of a slave of an ancestor. This slave had my own last name. He said that he liked being my ancestors slave because they didn't beat him much.

That interview and many others like it exists only because FDR was determined to get the economy going during the depression and he created make-work jobs. Nearly everyone knows that he sent out photographers to take a "portrait of America" which gave us iconic photo's of the dust bowl, the one that comes most easily to mind is the sun baked woman holding a baby. She was covered in dust. That photo was taken in California and the woman and her family had fled the dustbowl to find work in the fields in California. But FDR also sent out journalists to interview former slaves. There were former slaves at that time but they were almost all elderly so it was a now or never situation. The interviews were written in a way so as to try and maintain the dialect (slave dialect) of these people so it might come across as demeaning to some but that's not the way I read it. For me it seemed to more realistically portray who they were and the incredibly hard lives they'd had. These are called Slave Narratives and they are very interesting reading. Highly recommended.

So anyway, I despise that flag and I despise anybody who thinks it's cool. Luckily for them wishing them dead doesn't work no mater how hard I try.

"They were good to us. Dey whupped us sometime. I wuz not old enough to do no fiel’ work."

The truly sad thing is that I don't think we've moved very far past those times. The attitudes are still there because of the class system.

Then you aren't very smart, don't know anything about civil rights history, and have never watched old videos where racist statements by today's standards were normal.

Why exactly is the Confederate flag "anti-American", but kneeling for or burning the American flag not "anti-American"?

Side: NOT mine

It's our country's heritage and therefore our heritage as Americans. You can't pick and choose. We are a product of our past- the good, the bad and the ugly.

That was easy, give me something difficult.

Hello High:

Couple things..

Heritage belongs in a museum.. The guys you're celebrating LOST.. The guys you're celebrating were TRAITORS. The guys you're celebrating were fighting to KEEP slavery..

Given the above, what would prompt me to think you're any different than our own resident white supremacist, Miocene?

Interesting. Leftists hate Abraham Lincoln. I think we both know why.

Iconic Washington, DC, monuments defaced in night of protests

Numerous Washington, D.C., landmarks were the target of vandalism Sunday evening as protests in the nation's capital over the police killing of George Floyd entered their third day.

Photos posted on Twitter by the National Park Service (NPS) showed graffiti on several monuments including the Lincoln Memorial, the World War II Memorial and the Brigadier General Casimir Pulaski statue in Freedom Plaza.

Heritage is everywhere, not just a museum. Statues, buildings, monuments, our literature are all a part of our heritage. Furthermore, I'm not celebrating these people, they are a part of our history. For good or for bad, trying to erase them is wrong.

We aren't celebrating anyone. We're asking you why you are stupid enough to pretend like destroying U.S. Grant, Thomas Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln statues is destroying Confederate "traitors".

The guys you're celebrating were fighting to KEEP slavery..

Nobody cares about Lee as a person. They care, at least in principle, that you are destroying American cities and vandalizing things that your Democrat run cities could have taken down through peaceful legislation decades ago as opposed to through violent means with disregard for any legislation.

Lenin was a mass murdering, homicidal maniac. Why don't you guys go ahead and take down that statue for us buddy? Nah, you like white, murdering tyrants. You like seeing him mocking you with that white, elitist smile. He is your white daddy.
