You are aware that the swastika is a symbol that has been used since the begining of time in almost every culture.


Back to the confederate flag, it is an unfortunate fact that it has been and is associated with racism. While slavery was an important factor in the civil war, it wasn't the only one. From a purely constitutional point of view, they probably should have been allowed to leave.

While it is still a symbol strongly used by racist people (ie the swastika) it's not the sole reason why the symbology is used and exists.

Don't fall for the lies, Incriptus! The Civil War WAS fought mainly over slavery.

I've found it's mainly those EMBARRASSED about it all, that it's about "states' rights." It was the state's right to be a slave state, is about all it was about. \:\(
