confederate flags should be taken down
Debate Rounds (3)
I accept this debate as I believe the Confederate Flag stands for nothing but Southern Pride and that it does not in any way stand for slavery or racism.
here we have the designer of the flag saying it was an emblem for the cause of the superior race. sounds pretty racist to me.
The flag was created to be the new flag of the new country, The Confederate States Of America.
How can a flag made to simply represent a country be racist?
Pro says that the only reason the Confederate flag was created was because the north was going after the south because of slavery. This is false. The flag was created because the Southern states seceded from the Union in order to form their own country and to elect their first and only president, Jefferson Davis.
Pro repeatedly argued that the flag represented a racist nation. Unknown to many, the Confederates would likely have abolished slavery after the war if they had won, as they were becoming increasingly uninterested in it. The South wanted independence much more than they wanted to hold onto slavery.

Reasons for voting decision: Couple of reasons I'm giving con a source vote. First this debate was so poorly done, that I don't think arguments should be awarded along with the 3 points it gives. Secondly, because at the very least Con uses some sort of source. Pro doesn't. I have to take pro at their word, and that means the while thing is a bare assertion more than an actual factual argument.
