Just one thing I LOVE to inform the uninformed about when they bawwww that the South was sooo evil .Did you all know that most slave owners treated their slaves well? Only a wee few were abusive. But again, something people won't listen to.

Yeah, because those people were racist with or without the flag. When they teach in the school that the flag is racist (because of course american schools want to denounce a flag of American revolutionaries) then racists will cling to it and people that aren't will be against it. Either way, both of those types are indoctrinated and have a skewed perception of that flag.
The confederate flag always has and always will be about racism.

Lincoln, honestly did not care whether the slaves were freed or not. It was about keeping the union together for him.
Which is why the Union attacked first.
The fact is, it was an issue though. It was one issue that was fought over during the civil war. The south fought in favor of it. The north did not.
