What would you think?

I want a tattoo and am thinking about a small rebel flag on my ankle. Would you think this is a racist tattoo?

  • its only racist to the people that think its racist - personally I'd get it in a less visible spot if people would take offense.

  • It's called a rebel flag not a racist flag. I dont think it automatically means racism, if that was the case The American flag could be racist too and so could the German flag etc....

  • I don't think the rebel flag is racist. My ancestors fought for the Confederacy and I know what my family was fighting for, to me that symbol is in my history and in many others. Now, for people that haven't studied that war or views on either side tend to lean towards the rebel flag as a symbol for white supremacy which it's not.
