Why do we make so much fuss about the Confederate flag?

Arguments about the Confederate flag are flaring up again, like a bad rash. People argue that it’s a flag that symbolizes hatred, bigotry, and racism. People argue that past history, or the people that the flag represents, does not represent a counter-argument to what it symbolizes.

And yet I’m not hearing people make the same argument about the American flag. Which also symbolizes hatred, bigotry, and racism. If you’re willing to make an argument against your opponents’ flag but not yours, you’re a hypocrite and no one should take you seriously.

    Excellent point. I never thought of it that way, but then again I could care less about flags. When American flags are burned, it’s done by non-Americans.
