Heritage not hate. People with no understanding of the history behind St. Andrew's Cross just plug their ears and open their mouth and yell "racist".
Especially when confronted with the fact that the US fought a bloody war against a supposedly horrible racist regime and the whole time they did it
with a SEGREGATED army.
Another often overlooked facet of it all was the fact that many plantation owners actually wanted to free their slaves. The problem was how do you
really go about it?
How do you take somebody that has been born a slave, and lived that way their whole life, and integrate them into society to where they can be a
functional productive member of that society?
Reminds me of an article I read a while back where a bunch of bleeding heart liberals decided to "free" thousands of minks that had been born in
captivity to Ultimately become coats. They opened the cages and released them to the elements. Within a week, they were all dead from exposure. None
of them had the survival skills necessary for life in the wild.
