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.
so true! I'm so tired of people who think Southerners are all pro Slavery. NOT TRUE! but just because a couple of people do stupid shit like the KKK under the rebel flag that's what everyone accicates the rebel flag with >.< it's annoying
I know what you mean. Almost everyone that looks at that flag sees it as a symbol of hate and slavery.
I love that flag and would gladly tell anyone why I support it the way I do. We don't have much trouble with it here in SC but they took it down from the atop the state house and then when it caused a huge uprising they put it on the grounds with the American and SC flag.
Yah. It really bothers me when people blame the south for slavery, when people in the north had slaves as well. It's not even like ALL southerners beat their slaves, I'm not saying it was good or anything, but most people just had small family-farms and their slaves were more like other workers...sorta.
