Con

the confederate flag should be offensive to anyone. The amount of offense taken from it has gone much too far and I have seen enough.
For example, New Orleans has began tearing down monuments of confederate generals and many protesters are getting upset.

But, in this situation, I ask, what does this flag represent? A war, and who won the war? The north, why would we keep monuments of people who lost a war? There is no purpose to it.

Who ever accepts this debate, please follow through with it.

I'm explaining why people shouldn't be offended about them being taken down

I'm a bit confused by your Round 1 post. You don't believe the flag is offensive, but you're for removing them from public places?
