Flying this flag is akin to flying a flag picturing a family beaten and shackled.... Flying any flag that has been so strongly connected to atrocities perpetrated on other human beings is racist. The swastika is historical to may people but it would be unacceptable to fly a flag with the symbol because of the unspeakable horrors it represents. This is not about being politically correct; it is about pulling ourselves up out of racism, bigotry,and hatred...It is about caring enough for your fellow human beings that you don't want to cause them the trauma of reliving past and current atrocities. Perhaps if your house of worship were burned, family separated, beaten, enslaved and sold like live stock under this flag.....Perhaps you would get that this is not just a southern symbol atop the duke boys general Lee.
