No Flag Freedom

The usual attack on Southern pride in their history:

"A civil rights group is challenging an Eastern Kentucky high school's use of the Confederate emblem as its school flag, saying the symbol is hurtful to black students at other schools.


The Ku Klux Klan were prominent Democrats in the first half of the 20th century -- which is a lot more recent than the North/South war. Maybe all representations of the Democrats should be banned too! If the Confederate flag is historically associated with racism, so are the Democrats. Modern-day Democrats don't support the Klan but nor do the students above support slavery
