Concerned Parents Against the Confederate Flag in Public Schools: Take down the Confederate Flag in Broward, FL (Sunset Lakes Elem)

    1. Petition by

      Tina Meadows

      miramar, FL

The confederate flag is a symbol of oppression, racism, and slavery. It is a reminder of a painful past in American History. Enslavement, being treating inhumanely, tearing families apart- while trampling human rights. The confederate flag should not illicit feelings of ancestral pride in any person or community.
The flag is intimidating and offensive to parents and students who have been culturally affected by it and it's symbolism. Take it down now!

      The Confederacy lost a war that was nothing but a farce to save the slave industry for rich southern people. Way too many people were forced to participate in a war for in which they had absolutely nothing at stake except their very lives, many of which were sacrificed for another mans gain. Today it is being used as a bully and hate symbol and should be abolished from ever flying anywhere again, especially in schools where such groups as the SCV and Flaggers are sending in young kids to spread their brainwashing tactics on other young people.

      In the early 70s I went to a high school in St. Petersburg, Fl, that had a rebel flag. Dixie Hollins. The racism, that hatred that surrounded that flag polarized our school, and created a hostile environment for learning. The flag is a symbol of hatred, a symbol of slavery, of torture, rape and ignorance. The flag only belongs in history books, not among the living.

      It has no place in a public school.

      This flag represents treason. As such, it's anti-American.
