I want to know what you guys think of the confederate flag. If you don't want to say your opinions with your name attached, click what you personally think it stands for in the poll below. Personally, I say Independence, state rights, and southern heritage because that is what I was raised to know it stands for. My mom's side of the family comes from states around Tennessee, and if I asked any of them what the confederate flag stands for, they would answer exactly that. The flag is not racist, and even in the civil war where it was used, it was not racist. It has only become racist today because of biased media, and misinformative classes teaching people the civil war was about slavery, when that wasn't even close. The civil war was about differing opinions, yes, among them was the opinion about slavery, but that does not in any way mean the civil war started just because of that one opinion, it was multiple different things. And the confederate flag stood for the south, it stood for state rights, it stood for independence and as far as I'm concerned, it still does. And that opinion will never change. You could give me one trillion links to a trillion websites that say the flag is racist, and I will never believe you unless you show me something you have seen with your own eyes, not a photoshopped picture, something you have heard with your own ears, not a paraphrased rumor, something you walked to with your own feet, not read about someone else doing all of those things in a school textbook, that can 100% prove me wrong and say that the flag is and began as a racist flag.
