This flag symbolized racism and slavery and the fight to keep it alive in America. The Confederate States of America fell for good reason, and General Lee surrendered to Grant at the Appomattox court house on April 9, 1865. That this flag still flies all over places within our free nation is a dishonor to all who fought and died for that freedom and to free all slaves and end slavery in America forever. That this flag flew at state capitals is an insult to all African Americans and any people anywhere in the world that are enslaved. Slavery is a horrific human tragedy and one that should be eradicated from the planet but never ever forgotten. Those that fly the rebel flag (or any flag which represents slavery or opression) are traitors to our nation, to the world, to freedom, and are enemies of humanity.
