Removing a Flag Will Not Remove Racism,……

Most people don’t even know the reasons why the South seceded from the Union because it wasn’t either taught in school or they were too busy passing notes. For you younger people that was a precursor to texting.
There were basically 5 reasons for the Civil War,….
1. Economic and social differences between the North and the South.
2. States versus federal rights.
3. The fight between Slave and Non-Slave State Proponents.
4. Growth of the Abolition Movement.
5. The election of Abraham Lincoln.
Yes slavery was an issue,…. one fifth of the issue. There were other reasons for it as stated above. Personally, I think the South needs to again pull away from the Union. Not because of race issues but because of political correctness. And states rights. The federal government is too controlling.  And those in the South that strive to be politically correct can just move North or to Florida. We’ll give the Union Florida because they aren’t Southern anyway.
This idea of the Confederate battle flag representing hate is totally BS. Listen to rap songs,… they promote more hate than this flag does. Don’t believe me, take a listen.
Yes you can remove this flag all you want,… no longer in tv shows, no longer in NASCAR,.. not atop state capitals,…  but that will not remove racism.  You can remove the flag,… but the true meaning of it and the history it really represents will remain.

  1. All removing this flag does is drive one more nail in our first amendment rights. I've never seen such an insane world. The end result will not be what the whiners wanted, but by then, it will be too late for whining to help.

  2. The flap about removing the Confederate flag is just a sideshow that doesn't address the real problems of racism.
