How does the Confederate flag represent southern "pride?"?
The south formed because they wanted to own slaves, they eventually seceded and formed the confederacy, TO OWN SLAVES. I don't see anything prideful about owning slaves or how even the flag could be considered to show pride. The flag represented a country that wanted to own people!

The American Civil War was not fought because of slavery alone. In fact, it wasn't even the biggest reason. Public school won't teach you that though because they've failed us all.
Also, the Confederate flag is often used as a sign of rebellion. Plus, the First Amendment protects each individual's right to make statements and that would include flying flags. As long as the person flying that flag is not infringing upon anybody else's rights, they have every right to fly it whether somebody else agrees with it or not.
