For Blacks, That Goddamned Flag Is Their Swastika

That the Confederate flag still flies atop the South Carolina state capital is an affront to decent people everywhere.  For white trash southerners, they'll defend it as a symbol of the civil war, a war fought for "state rights."  Of course they're pretty good at avoiding any mention that the state right in question was the right to enslave human beings.

For "black folks" that flag has an enduring meaning.

Mound, I watched this on t.v. with lot of detail. It is a shame that it is happening in 2015. It looks nothing has changed and there is a backward movement to 1800s. Sad and unfortunate.
