Living in South Carolina I can tell you that the NAACP boycott of the state has had little to no effect.

It would seem they have other steps in mind.

Cincinnati (AP) - NAACP leaders meeting in in Cincinnati say they will step up their campaign against flying of the Confederate battle flag on state grounds in South Carolina.

A 2000 compromise removed the flag from the Capitol dome in South Carolina. It now flies on Statehouse grounds near the Confederate Soldier Monument.

CNS News

Now while I DO NOT support flying the Confederate Flag over the Statehouse, I wonder what one would fly over a Confederate Soldier Monument if the Confederate Flag was not allowed?

A little common sense is needed here.

i live here in columbia, and i can tell you when they took the flag off the state building they made a statue and put it right smack dab in the middle of the yard..

you couldnt tell what it was on top of the state building. now its the first thing you see in downtown columbia

to hell with the NAACP. its South Carolina heritage, they need to realize that. and like it or not that flag is part of our history here in SC.

i have black faimly and they all know my feelings on it and guess what they dont even care. my nephews father, my brother in law, my faimly, is black and he buys me clothes with the battle flag on them for christmas and my birthday.

this to me is a sad attempt by people who have nothing better to do but snuff our history. screw them. they can cut the two rebel flags i have tattooed on my back of my cold dead body cause that is the only way they will take those down..


what about these brave black men who fought for the south?
where is their honor NAACP?

unlike union armys the blacks fought side by side with the white men for the south.

Not being from here originally, I really have no feelings on it.

I have fought my entire life for the ol' Red White and Blue. I don't care about other flags one way or the other.

If the people that were born here want it, I see no reason for some outsiders to come in and force them to remove it...

I think that if outsiders don't like it; don't come to South Carolina.
