    A flag is not racist. The people waving it are.

    As usual, Brad is full of ****. Black people fighting for the confederacy were DRAFTED into service by their masters and served mostly in positions of servitude. Such as manual labor(repairing roads and fortification) and accompanying their masters as servants. Free Blacks who were drafted served under White commanders and were not NOT issued weapons of any sort with which to fight. They never engaged in battle. Eventually some even switched sides and went to fight for the Union. It wasn’t until March of 1865 that the Confederate army allowed Blacks as soldiers, a decision that was made too late to help the Confederate cause.

    The intent of this flag is very racist and classist...might as well fly the flag of Nazi Germany..and let's bring out the flag of Communist Vietnam and fly it b/c it certainly represents a tradition..one in which involved fighting against the US of A.

    not in my opinion, I don't think the southern battle flag is a symbol of hate, but a symbol of pride and tradition - Doesn't matter, the naacp wants to see the American flag banned too -

    It is a part of history. Ugly American history but apart of it. I think it should remain as a reminder of the failure of the Ole South not rising again. Ever

    There are a billion questions on here with the answer, why waste points to ask it when you could have simply used the search bar? -_-

    Does this flag symbolize Aryan superiority, antisemitism and all other bull sh*t the Nazis believed in?

    No, it's not racist and anyone who says it is racist knows nothing about the flag.
