The symbol does not create the thought, the thought creates the symbol. What good is burning the symbol when the thought remains untouched? You may destroy the symbol wherever you find it but you cannot burn it from memory so attempting to remove it from sight is useless rhetoric.

Did you see all the white people protesting the flag? I think the State of South Carolina should have a referendum and let the people of the state decide. If they vote to remove it from the capitol, then put it in a museum. The flag deserves to have its place in history.

I almost never respond to your posts so I don't know where this cherry picking your posts comes from. You appeared to be justifying slavery, if that's not the case which is still not very apparent... then I apologize.

Like the swastika, the confederate flag has become a symbol of hate and should be banned.
