But you WANT the attention for being black, you call attention to yourselves in all white surroundings, black people are the ones perpetuating the whole problem.

While I personally wouldn't wave around a Confederate flag, it is far from treasonous.  It is functionally very similar to flying a state flag, although instead of representing one state, the Stars and Bars represents a group of states. 



I agree.

It is not about slavery, not about racism.  Anybody who claims otherwise is obfuscating the issue.

I disagree.

You can disagree all you want, but you're wrong on this one.  You probably think the Civil War was over slavery too, right?  No, the Civil War was about federalism.  Nothing more, nothing less.

Although all confederate statesmen cited states' rights as the reason for secession, without slavery the civil war never would've happened. 

-Kansas/Nebraska
-Dred Scott Decision
-John Brown
-Uncle Tom's Cabin
-Underground Railroad

The vast majority of the north-south tensions were a direct result of slavery.  Remember, however, that the Union didn't start the war to end slavery (and may not have had white popular support for doing so at the time).  The Emancipation Proclamation was at least as much of a military tactic as a humanitarian gesture.

What does this mean for the rebel flag?  People can wave it and say that it's not about slavery, and might consciously believe what they're saying.  The fact is, Confederate history is undeniably intertwined with slavery - the Confederacy cannot be separated from it socially, economically or politically.

I didn't say that but I will now -- the Civil War was as much about slavery as it was federalism, if not more.  Probably more.

So, did you apply to Liberty?  You'd probably love it there.
