The confederate flag signifies the South, not white superiority.

How can a flag be anything other than what the people that fly it represent it to be?

Oddly enough I disagree. I think it is an extremely racist symbol. As for it being inherently racist, it's just a flag. It has no inherent meaning at all. The meaning that it gains is from its being symbolic, its being viewed by people. Therefore, as a symbol it is racist (not inherent). How is that?

The Confederate Flag Was never racist and will never be racist. The Confederate Flag stood for a nation that wanted less government and money not to hold slaves for another 100 years. People fly this flag because there proud to be Southern not that they hate black people. Another thing is that soldiers as young as 13 to 63 all died under this flag.

I don't think so. It may have some negative connotations, but I think nowadays it is becoming more a symbol of States rights than racism.

Asides from which I don't see how a swath of cloth can be racist or have any human emotions, really.
