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!
