Banning the confederate flag: Should the confederate flag be banned in schools?

  • It is the topic.

    The topic of this debate is whether or not the flags of US states should use the Confederate flag in their design, as well as whether or not Confederate flags should fly over memorials and buildings owned or operated either by the US and/or a US state.I believe that the Confederate flag stands for the Southern people, Southern traditions, and Southern culture.

    The main arguments that people would use against this would be the fact that the kkk and the Neo-Nazis also use this flag. But what most people don't realize is that both of these groups use the American flag, and the kkk uses the Christian flag. Nazi Germany actually outlawed the Confederate flag because Hitler thought it was a symbol of state's rights, and a man from South Carolina was executed for flying the "rebel flag".

  • Well of course!

    We dont need the flag in a place of open mindedness and education. The flag is a ymbol of oppression for many reminders of slavery and racism. We do not need any more of such bigotry in america we have plenty already . Banning the flag will do a lot of good to the country and its kids

  • Symbol gafswaqg ef vewsa

    Symbol Has Changed Confederate flags do not mean what they used to mean. Originally a banner for a rebellion who is markedly remembered as promoting slavery, it has degraded into a simple symbol of the American south. Even that symbol has evolved into identifying with a red-neck subculture. Now it just goes hand-in-hand with mud flaps and camouflage-ware

  • It isn't needed

    We don't need that flag. We already have a perfectly good one in our classrooms already. If we kept it up then people will start to want that as our flag. And then they will get mad and say the pledge of allegiance to that flag. Students have enough to worry about.

  • Should we ban our Freedom of Expression too?

    All meanings of the confederate flag aside, it's history. We are supposed to learn history why would you take it away? There's nothing wrong with a confederate flag. Tell me where it says anything resembling racism on the flag. Red white and blue with 13 stars? Wow that's pretty racist don't ya think? The current meaning of the confederate flag is less government control. 13 states in and X... "X" out the union. That's the only meaning behind the confederate flag.

  • No, it is educational.

    No, the confederate flag should not be banned in schools, just like the American flag should not be banned either. The confederate flag is a part of history, and it is a good thing for students to know what a confederate flag is when they see one. To some people, the confederate flag is only a symbol of state's rights. There is no reason to ban it.
