Does the Confederate Flag offend you?
First I want to give my take on this question so that readers will know where I'm coming from. None of us alive today were ever slaves. None of us alive have ever owned a slave. No one in my ancestry owned slaves. I love the south. It's where I was born and raised, and the Confederate Flag has been exposed to me all my life. My display of the Confederate Flag on my newest avatar is not meant to be an insult or to offend. I do not support hate groups like the KKK. Instead this flag to me represents the heritage of this country, specifically the south where I grew up. When I see the flag it makes me proud of how far our country has come in regards to civil rights. It reminds me that we all have inalienable rights. My display is not support for abolishing civil rights. It is a display that never lets me forget and to thank all those before us who fought to make sure we are ALL free and equal. This country has a lot of history - both good and bad.
