I really hate it when people think negatively about this flag and it's meaning. This flag represents the pride we people from the south have. I was born in Georgia and raised there for 7 years before moving to Germany. During those 7 years however, I remember seeing that flag and thinking nothing negatively of it. My father hates the new Georgia State flag. And I have to agree with him there, in comparison I do like the old one more than the new one. I also hate it when people at school ask me if I am part of the KKK. I always tell them no and then follow up with asking them if they are a part of the third reich. I don't think my classmates even know what the KKK even did and what kind of impact they had upon the south. So in the end I am a girl that is 15 years old right now while writing this who was born in Georgia and is not racist nor is part of the KKK or any other hate groups. I will wave this flag with pride.
