    The confederate flag also know as the southern cross is a symbol of slavery and segregation. As a black woman who's ancestors were slaves I find it offensive. It is used by racially motivated extremist groups. The real shame of it is that in today's society people are still using the confederate flag as symbol.Many states incorporate the confederate flag as a part of their state flag. I was born and raised in New York and was really not exposed to the perils of racism until I moved to the Mid West. It was a shock but it also made me more mindful of the struggle of my ancestors. It makes me proud that my ancestors would fight so hard for their beliefs. Willing to die so I could have a decent free life. When a parent is racist a child is exposed to it. "Children learn as they live" If a child is exposed to hate he will learn to hate. For this reason it will be very difficult for racism to die.

    • so why do so many blacks support the confederate flag learn the facts before you speak !!

    Old ideas/views that should have died with the end of the Civil War. Many people say it's just there heritage, I have a hard time with that. Why be proud of such a thing?!?!
