For the life of me I CANNOT understand why the flag is still around. It is a remnant of an era that has passed away. That said, why are these flags displayed proudly in windows, on the backs of cars, and even in state flags? To me, the Confederate flag represents biggotry and a feeling of superiority, and not the equality that is idealized (but not yet realized) in modern day America. Is there anyone who can explain the maintained presence of the confederate flag to me? Does anyone else feel my sentiments? Please let us know where you are from in your first post so we can get some kind of perspective on this topic.
