As of July 10, 2015, the Confederate Flag has been removed from South Carolina's Capitol grounds after half of a century (54 years) flying in the air. It has been over a month since the horrible massacre of nine people in a monumental African-American church by the hands of a thug named Dylann Roof with the intention to start a race war. This unspeakable act led to the debate of removing the Confederate Flag from the S.C. Capitol, a flag that became a product of Roof's intentions that fateful day. Without the votes of people of ALL colors coming together to want to bring this symbol of hatred down, it would still be flying. It's beautiful how something that was meant to tear us farther apart brought us closer together as a nation.

I think we should also bring the American flag down. I mean which flag brought more oppression if you think about it.

Well, that should end racism. Or it was just a silly diversion to make people think that something was accomplished instead of, you know, actually addressing the topic of race relations in America after a racially motivated slaying. It's heartening that the sight of the Battle Standard flapping over the State House will no longer be driving random people into a murderous frenzy, which was apparently the cause of this violence.
"I thought about the Paschal Candle. Wounded in its wax, wounded in its wick, wounded in its light, having the Passion of Christ in it and having therefore the woundedness of the world in it, it was there at our cradle, going before us and guiding us in time, and now again, there it is at our coffin, going before us and guiding us into eternity."

Who said it ended racism? It surely wasn't me. The removal of that flag is a big step forward to healing and understanding, not a step back. Roof was not a random person to randomly murder innocent people. If you actually researched him, you would know that he planned this entire thing. And I didn't say that that flag was the main cause of his murder frenzy, his racism was, which is why he flaunted that flag in his pictures.

What flag in the ENTIRE WORLD brought the most oppression? The American flag isn't the only one with that kind of history.

Its really nice to see that the government can work together to bring a flag down instead of working together to solve a plethora of other much more important things.

He's just trolling your thread.

No, it was utterly insignificant. It was a chance for white people to pat themselves on the back without actually doing anything to address racial issues.

Roof was not a random person to randomly murder innocent people. If you actually researched him, you would know that he planned this entire thing. And I didn't say that that flag was the main cause of his murder frenzy, his racism was, which is why he flaunted that flag in his pictures.

As I said, the idea that removing the flag will do anything to combat racism is farcical. It was a distraction, and now we will move on without actually addressing the problem, as we always do.

I can see your viewpoint since this is a matter of opinion. You're right, removing the flag does not whatsoever combat racism, but it does show how much we are slowly changing as a country. This is all I am commenting about. Nothing serious.

I would applaud them...

Except this is 2015. Not 1886.

Still, it's an important step in the right direction.
