    I find it hilarious considering Outkast have also displayed the confederate flag citing southern heritage.

    What's funny over the whole flag thing is everyone is so concerned about a flag flying in SC. Look at the Mississippi state flag.

    And your quote was from 1853, so your point is what exactly? Also, nice necro-strawman, LOL indeed.

    That makes absolutely zero sense.

    Dan Snyder might have a refuge for his team when D.C. takes a stand against the nickname. The Tupelo Redskins has a ring to it. :cool:

    In my US History class in college the professor said, that many freed slaves then went and enslaved the local Liberia population and forced them to plant cotton.

    The Confederate flag was a flag that was flown in the name of rebellion against the U.S.(Killing American Soldiers) and Slavery. It has no place on State grounds. If you're ok with it being flown on State grounds, why not fly this one?

    They stand for the same thing and Americans fight for them.

    What about the war flag of the Imperial Japanese Army? Some people wear it because it stands for strength and courage or simply because they are Karate fans.

    But some other Asian nationalities see it as a symbol of arrogance. Most Katate kids who use this flag don't think that massmurder or massrape are cool concepts.

    Had that idiot Dylan Roof not killed 9 people, it wouldn't have been an issue.

    I'm disappointed SC decided to take the flag down. Obviously it never meant slavery to them otherwise it wouldn't have been up in the first place. Hope the other Southern States won't toe this stupid line to appear PC

    Yep. The freed slaves moved there and adopted the plantation model themselves.

    Stone Mountain Park is owned by the state of GA.

    The private company that operates the theme park has a contract with the state. They don't own the mountain.

    This is false, while some native tribes had practices that could be considered slavery Liberia's constitution outlawed it at the inception of the colony. They even helped to prevent enslavement in west Africa.

    " A white rectangle two times as wide as it is tall, a red quadrilateral in the canton, inside the canton is a blue saltire with white outlining, with thirteen white five-pointed stars of equal size inside the saltire." The white in this picture is just for scale

    Designed by William T Thompson, the second national flag... I don't see where it's bullshit. It's nearly identical to the one flown today.

    And the one flown today (once again, nearly identical) was designed by William Porcher Miles, a staunch fire eater, racist, and supporter of slavery, so either way you put it....

    Well to sherdog you can take any two things and compare them directly, no context needed.

    It doesn't matter if it is "nearly identical". The stars and bars existed before that flag. He created a new flag for his white supramicist view points, and that isn't the flag that is flown today.

    Basically what you are arguing is that the Hindu swastika is a racist symbol because later, the Nazis used a variation of it as such.

    Do you really enjoy being on the losing side of an argument? Almost every declaration of secession mentioned slavery in the first or second sentence. So while the crowd that loves to spout "The civil war was about states rights" are in part correct, they were ultimately defending their right to enslave another race.
