    No. It was once the banner of the Confederacy, but since the Civil War, it has come to represent something else. It represents the distinctive social culture of the American South - all races included - as well as independence, strength and self-sufficiency. It hasn't been a racist symbol for many, many years. The same way the swastika was transformed from a symbol of peace in Buddhist culture to a symbol of hate and violence under the Nazis, so too has post-Civil War culture erased the hate from the "Stars and Bars" and made of it a banner of pride and fellowship for all who live in the South. If anyone sees racism in it - in its modern form - it's only because they are projecting their own fears and hatreds onto it. Now, the African National Congress tri-color banner is a different story. Without question, that is the banner of anti-white racist hatred and Black Supremacy. It has no place in American public life.

    1/ It represents a group who were racist, and is therefore a symbol of that groups racism.

    2/ What we call the Confederate flag wasn;t the flag of the south, it was merely one of many flags used by the South's military. It was never a national flag.

    Racists see it as a racist symbol. Normal folks with good intentions see it as the symbol for which it truly stood in history: the struggle for Southern rights!

    It really shouldn't be. The American Flag supported slavery for many years before the Confederacy was even dreamed of.
