i've become ammune to any offending the confederate flag was intended to do

when i ask about it i say "do people ever get offended by ur shirt?" they'll just say "it mean we are just from the south"

    I live in California so I've never seen the Confederate flag raised, but as an American citizen who believes in equality. I would find that downright offensive. The south broke apart because they were pro-slavery and the north was against it. The civil war was fought to end slavery and reunite the country, to see someone raise the confederate flag is pretty wrong in my opinion. But then again, It's all a matter of perspective. They could just have it raised because it is part of their and Americans history.

    you failed to understand history. not much more than a hundred years ago the confederated stats of America was a sovereign nation controlling half of the civilized lands of what now is the united states. it represents a PEOPLE. Turks an Kurds Caucasus and Russia Ireland and England.

    the potential for offense comes form those who do not understand this not from those who continue to identify with that people. tmm

    I live in Florida and see them all the time. So I am used to it. So it is not offending to me that much anymore.
