    I agree it shouldnt be displayed.

    Wayne A the southern cross and the confederate are nothing alike, the southern cross was just a flag flown during the eureka stockade, it stood for freedom and rights. The confederate flag was flown by the confederate army who were basically fighting to keep slaves, the two stand for 2 opposite things.

    No, a accomplice Flag isn't an overt signal of racism and could no longer be treated as such. The Confederacy is a good image of Southern historic previous. each edge fought heroically in the course of the Civil conflict and that i believe it truly is something which will be commemorated.

    How come people can't fly their own flag without being called racsist ? In Australia its the same with our "Southern Cross" which was a flag of rebellion against the Brittish Empire in the Gold Rush days and now seen as a racsist White Aussie flag. My guess is even the confederate flag has a meaning known to true believers.

    I believe it is. However a lot simply think it's a sign of rebellion. I blame the dukes of hazard they made it look "cool".

    Because people have a right to be racist or not they just can't infringe on other people's rights with their beliefs.
