here let me erase history as if nothing every happened. If we take away the concentration camps does that mean the 6.5 million people were not exterminated. If we remove statutes of Civil War Heroes does that mean they are no longer heroes? If the USS Arizona memorial were removed because some Japanese person does n ot like it, does that mean a Kamikaze sneak attack never happened and all of the Navy personnel were never lost? The Stars and Bars was a battle flag for the south. It did not represent slavery. It was their Colors. Just like the Stars and Stripes that so many ignorant people think is holding them down. What is holding them down is their lack of education, their unwillingness to learn and to abide by the laws of this nation. They do not want to serve this nation in a patriotic manner and get the funds for an education. They would rather complain and criticize than do anything that might be productive and demonstrate a willingness to participate and work towards a prosperous equitable goal for all.

The Confederate flag is inherently a symbol of white supremacy. Its "rebel" connotations cannot be removed from that history.
