i see so many on here call someone ignorant for many things but when i see posts about the confederate flag or something 90 % of the replies are things like .."your racist" or "uneducated hilibilly" or" did you bring you KKK card too?" that my friends is ignorance. why not learn the truth about the confederate flag? are you only willing to believe what you were "programed" to believe? i am sorry to break it to you but the confederate flag HAS NOTHING NOT ONE DARN THING TO DO WITH SLAVERY OR THE KKK!!! i have never even recalled reading that in history books . so why is it ok that pwoplw can just assume about this and then be flat out hateful towards anyone that flies that flag? learn what the flag means first . obviously it doesnt stand for what you think it does.
if you dont want to read a history book or anything then just google it , besides the ignrance of others you will find fact.

I see a lot of posts here telling others that their belief is ignorant. I refrain from doing that because I don't know what other people's understanding is on subjects, many times it just comes down to a fundamental difference of opinion. JMO.

The INNACCURATE PERCEPTION of the Confederate flag as being associated with racism is widespread, and loads to even city officials trampling citizens rights, destruction of private property, and desecration of graves. as in the link above.

Because of the revisionist history. The South was not the victor, and unfortunately they have been demonized by our society. They have been perceived as wrong, and the entire reason for the civil war has turned into a big lie. When you make the reason for secession about slavery, you in fact give the perception that all southerner were slave owners or condoned slavery. You demonize the group and therefore they are perceived as evil, and what is said about them or at their expense is upheld because they are less than human because they are considered racist. In addition we are visual by nature. When a class room, is shown movies of graphic images civil rights movements, where a confederate flag is hanging next to the bloody corpse of a lynching victim, you associate the flag with hate. What else is a malleable mind to discern but that the flag is a symbol for hatred and racism. Especially when their teacher states nothing
