Well, another victim of political correctness.
A flag is only offensive if people want to be offended, or if is used to purposefully cause offense. I think that in this case the former is true.
I am not American, but it's clear there is a race problem in the US. Taking down a flag is a victory for no one. Not everyone who flies the Confederate flag is a racist, yet that's the picture painted.

All the racial stuff is now a thing of the past. With the removal of the flag from the SC capital building, all our issues are solved.
Woo-Hoo... I am sooooo happy, now.
God, this is so useless.
What exactly is accomplished by this? Are those innocent dead suddenly going to return to life? Are the bigots suddenly going to see the light of kindness to those who are different?
Somehow I don't think so.

it's just a red herring to distract from the real issue: gun control and culture of racism.
Unless someone can prove the flag forced that guy to carry out the shooting.
In a sick way it was really brilliant, instead of having the usual talk about gun regulations that goes nowhere and doesn't look good especially during the political run, they pointed their finger towards the flag.
They know most americans will wag their tails like excited dogs at buzzwords that invoke the ideas of safety or freedom.
