What are your thoughts about the removal of the Condederate flag?


The South Carolina Senate gave its final approval Tuesday to removing the Confederate flag from the Capitol grounds. What are your thoughts about this? Was it fair? Was it appropriate?

    I agree that the issues are much bigger than the flag. Unfortunately, that flag became a symbol of hate and intimidation just like the "n" word and white hoods. There is so much to be said for these symbols. For me, taking it down is also symbolic.

    So, why has there never been outcry to remove all roads, buildings and schools named after WV KKK founder and leader Robert Byrd? There are FEDERAL buildings and Hwys with his name on them. Why no outcry there? KKK did far more damage to blacks.

    What does that have to do with anything? Are you saying there are no white republican racists? Dream on.

    Yep.. lmc finally got a law passed that will end all the mass killings and murders. If only we had banned the Democrats long ago just think of the lives we could have saved.

    I agree that the motives were political. The hatred is inside of people and taking the flag down does not change that.

    I am glad people are talking about this. I am grateful children saw this happen and hopefully had some illuminating discussions.
