Do you think the Confederate military flag should be removed from the Mississippi flag?

Posted by: PetersSmith

Arguments lead to polls.

  • Yes, this could be because some can connect racism with the Confederate flag and/or because it represents an allegiance to a traitor country.

  • No, this could be because the Confederate flag represents southern pride and/or state pride, and racism should not be connected to it because the Civil War may have been more about State's Rights than slavery.

  • Not because it represents pride or anything, but because you can't tell someone what they can and can't do, it is a principle we were founded one being able to express what we want without restrictions and limitations on our freedom of speech.

  • it was a symbol of southern pride

  • Never! Let the flag fly high!

  • Unfortunately in this case we should allow the individual states to have the right to choose their own flag. I do disagree with flying The Confederate Stars and Bars on public property such as a state capitol ground where everyone has had to pay taxes. I do think The Confederate battle flag should fly in historic settings it pertains to.

Hanspete: The examples given are just possibility, they even both say "could" and "may".

Atheist-Independent: In all honesty, I had it written down before and I was planning on making it eventually, but if you want to take the credit I'll let you have it.

Atheist-Independent: Actually, when I first wrote it down I didn't know Mississippi was the state that had it, I just knew that one state had it.

Oh. I'll take the credit anyways because I'm in a narcissistic mood today.

Just kidding.

Atheist-Independent: Omg, I have a poll like that written down too!

"it represents southern pride" makes me wanna throw up, like saying Germans should let the nazi flag fly. In addition, it promotes sectionalism.
