Banning the Confederate Flag, Here we go Again

Senator Clinton has said South Carolina should remove the confederate flag from the courthouse grounds. I live in the South so I know what the flag is about. The flag represent oppression of blacks. But it also represents the culture and history of a people group. In America we’re entitled to freedom of speech, and the confederate flag still being flow is an expression of that. And when you get to banning one flag, another flag might be banned, like the black flag of the anarchists, or the Pan-African flag.

    I just posted something about the Confederate Flag…would love your take on it: http://sanmateopete.wordpress.com/2009/09/23/the-confederate-flag/

    I don’t argue for banning flags…I argue that it’s a horrible choice and isn’t an ideal choice to represent the Southern culture/history.

    thanks,
