I love how you keep using phrases like "narrow view of humanity", when you can't even accept why people view the flag with racist connotations tied to it. I guess everybody has a narrow view on humanity, except the very person who is ignorant to the fact, or is too stubborn to admit, that the flag they love, has racist connotations attached to it.

It actually sounds at times like you would be happier if I did support slavery. Perhaps that would somehow justify your narrow view of humanity?
Actually, if you go back and watch the movie, the confederate flag is brought up, and shown to have racist connotations tied to it. Right after the car gets painted, the Duke brothers are driving around Atlanta, unaware that they have a confederate flag on the roof of their car, and a lot of people are shocked and a bit pissed that they have the balls to be driving through Atlanta with a confederate flag on their car(either that, or they're just being ignorant to the fact. I can't remember, it's been YEARS since I've seen that movie). It was a satirical piece, that addressed the racist connotations that the flag now has attached to it.

The Dukes of Hazard Show has a car called The General Lee with a Rebal Flag on the roof. The show was also a movie so I don't think as a whole that many people really look at it as a racial issue.
The city received hundreds of complaints in January, the last time Confederate flags were planted in holders on light poles, to mark Lee-Jackson Day, a state holiday. People complained "that displaying the Confederate flag is very hurtful to groups of people," Ellestad said. "In their mind, it stands for the defense of slavery."

The root of slavery was DURING the war to attack the southern economy, it was more about the southern economy than slavery. The south wanted to become a sovereign "industrialized" nation.... Had the north did nothing about southern secession, the south could become a more powerful industrialized nation than the north.

I find it quite amusing how when someone has an opinion that differs from yours, you bust a gasket and go bonkers trying like hell to persuade others how you are right and they are wrong. Face it Sonny, I DISAGREE with you and with femalepharoh. Now get busy!! Lets see how long I can keep you occupied trying to prove whatever it is you are trying to prove. It may keep you up at night knowing there are people in this world who DISAGREE with you, get over it, I will never agree with you and to quote FP, "your kind."
