The video below was uploaded just this morning. I have no idea where it was filmed. In fact, it doesn’t really matter whether it was filmed in Mississippi or Maine.
I have little patience for the discussion of whether every display of the Confederate flag on private property reflects a racist intent or message. Given the history of the Confederate battle flag, from the Civil War to today, apart from a few exceptions there is little reason to give anyone the benefit of the doubt.
At this point in time you own that past if you feel strongly enough to display this flag in a place where it can be viewed by the public as opposed to inside your home.
I am at a loss as to what might be said to convince this individual that her neighbors are not imparting a racist message with the display of the flag. She knows exactly what it means.
