    This is why we need to be further educated on what slavery actually was and what it did. It wasn't just keeping people to work for free.

    To answer the nerd wit the glasses about the U S conquering the natives. Y’all brought africans to the U S, we went for work n to make better lives, but instead whites tricked us into Slavery. We didn have a choice so pls don’t put blacks into that argument we had nun to do wit that.

    "THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" does not grant it's rights to foreign or domestics enemies. The confederate army was, is, and ALWAYS will be our enemy! THERE IS NO ARGUEMENT or Debate, some of y'all need clarification on who the CONSTITUION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is intended to protect. THE UNITED STATES DOES NOT ACKNOWLEDGE CONFEDERATE WISHES, its literally why we killed your forefathers. Call it disrespectful, but recant the actual war and then debate "disrespect" with me. This should allow everyone to understand the importance of Critical Race Theory. Its not about COLOR its about Race. Once you begin to teach your students that we are ONE RACE... you will begin to see progress. Public School teaches us how to accept the after effects of slavery by justifying history. We now find ourselves in constant debate because of the false narratives that we all have been taught. There is no common ground here even amongst those that agree with one another. Many of there comments directly contradict the others. When you teach children that the constitution allows you to express your thoughts "freely" it is dangerous. Freedom comes with a price and Americans of all color have paid that price. The constitution allows for all AMERICANS to express this right, it does NOT allow any other nation these rights. Keep in mind the southern states where another country. DOnt think that just because it lied within the borders of AMERICA, that it is still a part of our country. Respect the fact we allow the confederates children to live amongst us... it is the ONLY reason we have racism today! The confederate army surrendered the rights granted by.... (please read the following 3 words with caution) "THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA"! Any person who flies that flag is defying the reality that Confederates ARE NOT WANTED IN AMERICA. It was why we Kicked the dog snot out of your forefathers. ~READ THAT AGAIN! And stop reciting the AMERICAN constitution to justify your inability to accept the fact that you are still allowed to even live in this country. The confederate Army was beat and with that we fly THE AMERICAN FLAG. So you can go ahead and fly your flag, but just remember what happened when the confederate army tried that nonsense. Be thankful we allow you to be on our soil!

    There are multiple points of view of history. There isn’t one correct way of viewing it. My point of view is that the war was about slavery and taxes. I think it’s good to remember that the north was equally as racist. They didn’t want the expansion of slavery because they couldn’t compete with free labor. Abraham Lincoln has made open statements about whites being superior to blacks and actually wanted to send them back to Africa. I think for Abraham Lincoln the war was about keeping the south in the union to collect tariffs and less about slavery. I actually think slavey would of died sooner if the south actually left sooner because the fugitive slave law required northerners to send slaves back to their masters. Slaves could of escaped without out fear of being sent back. I personally wouldn’t fly the flag but I do think it respects the right to succession. I also acknowledge it’s association with slavery so I think it’s distasteful to fly it. I don’t think the southern s had a right to own slaves but I do think that they had the right to nullify laws and leave the union. It gave the federal government immense power who at the time wasn’t any morally superior to southerners. I think that denying that the states have the right to leave or nullify federal laws turns the United States into a centralized government more akin to the Soviet Union. It’s also interesting to note that hitler admired Abraham Lincoln for the very fact that he gave supremacy to the centralized federal government over the states. He actually disapproved of the Confederacy attempt to succeed. He wanted ultimate authority over the German states. If people can’t leave how are they free?? The right to leave is what makes our government great. Also the fact that states have to completed with each other so they will make favorable conditions for their citizens. That all goes away with a centralized government that has unlimited power over the states. Prior to the civil war there wasn’t a federal income tax. Abraham Lincoln was the first to enact one. He quote literally changed the relationship between individuals and the federal government. It’s a shame that succession and nullification are entangled with slavery. I agree that their should be a flag that represents the values that the south now holds and it shouldn’t be convoluted with slavery.

    I'm in the middle politically, but I really like that Christopher kid! BTW, I support the "right" to freedom of expression, but make no mistake: the Confederate flag is a slap in the face to every African-American, and person who loves America actually. Why would anyone want to offend people and cause fear, etc.

  • dabmotha

    General Lee himself said to put the flag up and never take it back out because it would be a sign of treason! "You can only push me so far?" And what dude you're going to fight back and lose? They lost dude, the north beat them in their own back yards. History has proven because slavery is so immoral it's a temporary practice at best. And the practice always get's destroyed. The American flag as we know today was made in 1960/58. Long after the slaughter of native Americans, the flag and it's meaning has evolved. "Important part of history that should not be thrown away." Last time I checked it's taught in every school in America.

    What the war was about is made clear by the southern states: "Our position is thoroughly identified with the institution of slavery-- the greatest material interest of the world. Its labor supplies the product which constitutes by far the largest and most important portions of commerce of the earth. These products are peculiar to the climate verging on the tropical regions, and by an imperious law of nature, none but the black race can bear exposure to the tropical sun. These products have become necessities of the world, and a blow at slavery is a blow at commerce and civilization." -- A Declaration of the Immediate Causes which Induce and Justify the Secession of the State of Mississippi from the Federal Union.

    Brooo.. 16:30 girl ended it to be honest... If you proudly fly that flag, then you MUST proudly accept all values that that flag stood for. The fact is that that flag stood to keep black people in slavery. You can not fly that flag, except not believe fully 100% in every single thing that flag stood for... you must align behind that flag 100%. I think people cling to the Confederate flag as a sense of southern pride/identity. Imo, that flag has been flown in the South forever, and people who take pride in being from the south, will most likely revert to that flag as their own personal symbol. OF COURSE it's easy to ignore the fact that the flag tried to keep black people enslaved ... so if you fly that flag, YOU MUST 100% agree with the things that flag stands for.

    I disagree. The difference between the US flag and the Confederate flag, is that the US flag represents something that is alive and changing over time. We can look at the atrocities that were committed under our flag and learn from it and change. The Confederate flag on the other hand represents something that is dead and people are trying to defend it by adding a different meaning to it.

    By "many hispanic americans" I think you mean overwhelmingly white conservative hispanics (source: from a white conservative cuban family). Che is more or less revered throughout Latin America, understandably so.
