chroniclesofemzor asked: "why do white people think having a confederate flag anywhere on your property screams anything other than 'im a blatant racist and slavery was cool'" Well let's see, white people think that the Confederate flag stands for southern pride. It's not about racism or anything that the Confederate army stood for, it's about being proud of your heritage. And what a rude assumption I may add.
who is this ugly white heifer in my askbox
It’s about white folks being mad they can’t have slaves anymore. Because who takes pride in LOSING?????????????
Even if I were to buy into the “southern pride” argument: How come the only flag these assholes wave is the BATTLE flag? The mark of armed secession and slave holding violence? They’re not waving the actual flag of the Confederate States.
Even if I bought the “southern pride” argument: What is that pride of? It’s not state pride, because then you’d use your state, county, or municipal flag. It’s not “founders pride”, because then you’d have any number of not-US or Confederate flags.
So what are you taking pride in? What part of the South are you taking pride in?
This is exactly like when people try and argue that it was about “states’ rights”
States’ right to do what, exactly? Hm?
Those southern battle flags didn’t start cropping up until Brown v. Board of Education in 1954. Those fuckers waited 90 years to start showing those flags. They didn’t fly them during Reconstruction, even though President Andrew Johnson was sympathetic to the “Southern cause”. They didn’t fly it post Reconstructions, when the Federal government abandoned freed slaves, whites passed every single black code and Jim Crow law the disenfranchised black people, instituted “separate but equal” and held black people hostage to their whims. They didn’t fly it during the Roaring Twenties, the Great Depression, and neither World War I or II. Not until the Supreme Court of the United States of America told them their fucking laws were unconstitutional in 1954. That shit is a protest of desegregation, and no amount of revisionist, Gone with the Wind ahistorical white nonsense is going to change that.
