The confederate flag and the German swastika (same thing) are symbols of hatred. They represent the oppression and exclusion of an entire group of people. I don’t understand Americans in 2015 that want to promote hatred. It’s so backwards for people in a country as progressive as the United States to maintain such and ignorant position. You really have to be concerned for some of the youth in the South, when they say things like “Here in the South, you either stand with us or you’re against us.” WHAAAT! This is the UNITED STATES OF A-MER-I-CA. I’m repulsed by your ignorance. Way past stupid. What’s your take L.A….Go ahead and say something?
