A dark, painful period of American history that is still being felt and debated today... it's not something that should be celebrated.
No matter what people argue, it has been used as a symbol of racism for too long. People that want to flaunt that image, no matter how much they aregue about heritage, rights, or history... they are opening themselves up to criticism.
It's no different than a swastika.

Some people who display the confederate flag would say that they are using it for non-racist meanings is an attempt to 'take back the symbol'.

Its almost the same excuse that the african-american defenders of entertainers and youth [amongst others] using that word. They are 'redifining' a word of hate. . . right?
