Both recently and historically there have been huge racist connections to it. To condem everyone displaying islamic symbols as a racist would be . . . well . . . racist.


yeah, i agree with that. i'm just speaking to what it (the confederate flag) represents (slavery) to some (blacks). personally i don't condone it's use; to me slavery overshadows every positive the flag might represent. i'd be lying if i said i don't approach supporters of the flag (those i don't personally know) with a bit of caution, but again, this is only because the flag represents so many things, including slavery. no, i don't assume the flag's supporters are automatically racists; possibly racists, but not certainly.

i typically don't follow politics and such, so you could be right.
