heritage not hate
The Southern cross banned?!?!?!
I hear, and I'm sure you do to, about public schools banning the image of the confederate flag. in my opinion, well i cant say that on line but it just aint right. That flag has been around long before me, or you, or any one else alive on this planet, and it aint going no where for a good long time. that flag doesn`t just represent the actions of our forefathers, but the way all of the people who still believe in it live and are raised.
This flag represent the way of life for me and countless others. There are so many people who are passionate about this and will give 6 hour lectures about it. Thats not my goal. I want to educate you so that you to see that it is heritage not hate.
wether you believe in it or not, the stars and bars represented a nation that fought indirectly for slavery. They fought for the way they were used to living, and unfortunately slavery was part of of that way of life. But did you know that not one slave ship flew the c.s.a. flag? They all flew the flag of the united states of america. I my self and a hardcore patriot, but the united state has done some gruesome things to undeserving people. No matter the reason, it was still and act that defied human rights. But despite all of these things we still fly that flag with extreme pride and dignity. Not good enough?, need another reason?
Freedom of expression, one of thoese few inalienable right written out to us in the us constitution. and this is the document that lays out the foundation for the country we all know and love. so why take away a symbol of there culture? Well there isn't a reason. Its wrong, Its unconstitutional, and it is straight unfair. Dont hate what you dont understand.
Now in the word of so many people before me "leave us good ole country boys alone". I hope ive helped clear up any misconceptions about this culture that is often hated and scrutinized but the media and general public to the point of sheer hatred from any one who sees the flag, and leads to actions and often violence towards the people who wear the southern cross. God bless you all.
