    confederate flag

    is the flag a bad thing? a symble of slavery? why do people of the north have such a hard time with it? I think its a cool looking flag and don't think of any negative assossiated with it. your turn.

    It's only a bad thing to people who are ignorant. That flag represents a major time in history. Everyone just associates it with slavery.

    The victors write history. Northern people have always been taught the confederate flag represents evil. Slavers, rebels, etc. Southern people may look at the flag as a symbol of their culture, not necessarily just "the bad guys". Same reasons why virtually all Americans hate the nazi flag or hate Muslims. Granted there are evils in all if those things, but it's not all evil

    May be a stretch but without the Nazis we might not have visited the moon or have the highway system we do today. Next time you see someone wear g a nazi flag I doubt you're gonna think Saturn rockets and cloverleaf highway exits

    The Confederate Flag symbolized what Americans viewed as a symbol of standing up to a tyrannical government by attempting to secede. Of course that view is and has been a topic of debate for the past 150 years. Strangely enough history has a tendency to repeat itself.

    F U Guys, I'm one of those people who runs around seeking things to act offended about that flag is easy to pick out and complain about right from the start so I never get eye strain on days that somebody is flying or wearing that flag.

    Well, how many "people of the north" have a hard time with it, I don't know, but you really don't think of any negative associated with it? No negative at all?
