    Confederate Flag

    Discussion started by Canadiano - Aug 20, 2002

    What's the deal? What the fuck is wrong with it? Why the hell do they want it off certain buildings? Why was Bodice hated on 'cuz she owned one? Why is it so taboo?

    I think it's an awsome looking flag, and if I was a Southerner, I'd rock that shit all over.


    I'm not white, nor were my ancestors slaves.

    You can't say it represents slavery, 'cuz it doesn't make sense. I'm out - I'll be back to grade you.

    I found one in my house while cleaning.
    It looks really old and it's not your average cheapo-gas-station flag.

    I'm not about to put it up in the window,
    but I'm not going to burn it.

    after all....
    One day the south will rise again.

    damn, where are you from? Canada or someshit? That flag was one of several confederate battle flags used by the racist south back in the days of the civil war. After the war the flag was used by many extremist hate groups such as the kkk to represent white domination over african americans.

    so by your rational, theres nothing wrong with germany continuing to use the swastika as its national symbol? that jews, russians, italians and gypseys shouldnt feel any alienation, sorrow, or anger when they see the flag flying above their government buildings?
    that they will be able to remove the fact that under its rule, 13 million people were murdered?

    100 million africans died or were murdered during the slave trade, dont tell me the flag that the slave owners chose to represent themselves, doesnt still carry that debt on its back.

    it's a symbol of america's early stupidity regarding the right to own slaves, and therefore i think it's really embarassing. it represents how far the southern states took the fight for slavery.
    unfortunately, racist americans have adopted the flag to show which side of the civil rights fence they stand on, to this day.

    yeah....so, being where im from, you can imagine that the flag is highly visible...and it is. you catch it on license plates, car windows, in peoples yards, etc.... and yeah, its also still used by the klan and other white supremacist groups....but those people are all fucking morons...and theyre spread all over the country, not just in the south....as far as it being a symbol of hate, thats the way its perceived, and it probably always will be...
    the thing is though, that not all people who take pride in the flag are racist...some are just proud to be from the south....hell, lots of punk rock kids and the few writers here rock that shit on beltbuckles and flyers.....like myself, im into collecting some confederate shit, but im by NO MEANS a racist....just proud to be from my area (despite all the terrible shit that our ancestors did)....in the long run though, shits not gonna change....people are always going to find something to bitch about, and in all actuality, i guess they probably have a good reason....

    i was in this tattoo shop a couple weeks ago, and one of the tattooers was telling me about the black guy that came in wanting a confederate flag tattooed... when the tattooer said he wouldn't do it the guy then asked if he would tattoo his girlfriend (of 2 weeks) 's name on his neck... it was funny stuff...
