Flag of Hate? by DarthRoden Flag of Hate? by DarthRoden
I Don't Know About You But I Am Sick And Tired Of Hearing People Complain That The Southern Cross Battle Flag (or Confederate battle flag, or Rebel flag) Is A Symbol Of Racism To African-Americans.
It Seems That Not All Black Men In The South Or The Rest Of America Share That Viewpoint, Even If It Seems That Most Do. Thankfully There Are More And More Individuals Disagreeing With Such Wrong-Thinking Monolithic Mindsets.

The Misuse Of This Flag By Racists Should Disgust Anyone Of Southern Descent Who Understands Its True History And Heritage.
Men And Boys Of All Races And Religions Served Under The Confederate Southern Cross, 260,000 Of Which Died In A Terrible War. Their Blood And Their Memories Are Woven Into The Fabric Of That Flag.
Those Who Advance Hateful Causes Taint The Memories Of Those Men And Corrupt What Most Southerners Today Consider The Living Symbol Of Southern Identity, An American Banner Second Only To That Of Flag Of The United States Of America.

I use to think that the Confederate was a symbol of hate and racism but I have been doing my homework and I found out that I was wrong.  As a white American and a Christian...I do believe that slavery and racism is wrong.  Yes...I know that Bible talks about slavery but it wasn't the same type of slavery that happened here in America.  I believe that everyone (male, female, black, white, etc) was created in the image of God.  I believe that Jesus died on the cross for both the white man and black man.  I believe that Jesus loves us no matter who we are.  Skin color doesn't matter to God.  He created us all!

We are in absolute agreement on that one.
As a Southerner I display that flag, but not because I want to offend anyone. I do it because I am proud to be from the American South and I'm proud to be a descendant of a Confederate soldier who died defending his home in war.
I hate the idea that people misuse that flag as a tool of racism and it hurts my soul every time I hear someone is offended by that. It disgusts me and anything I can do to advance the truth and change minds on that view of the Confederate flag and take away the power that racist people have with it I do happily. Nobody should be offended by the sight of that flag, nor made to feel ashamed of being born Southern or their ancestry.
Jesus loves all of us, especially Southern people, no matter what color we are.
God bless you and thanks for the favorite.

I WANT A SHIRT LIKE THAT!!  I live in Texas, that makes my a Confederate.   I NEVER HAVE SUPPORTED THE ISSUE OF SLAVERY!!!  I would have set all the slaves free if my family owned any in the Civil War.
