I'm from West Van, but like, don't erase history. Sometimes you need see offensive stuff in order to learn from it!

Read my letter published in the Langley times nov 28.
History is history and in needs to be remembered NOT censored.
If anyone is offended by anything - realize that it is a decision made by that person (to be offended) - they have the right to be offended but they do not have the right to censor historical fact or prevent a school from teaching history.
To Mr. Moon : many things on this planet might potentially offend you, deal with it buttercup. What if the Korean flag offends me? Should I be able to dictate to you whether or not you can display it? Grow up or shut up

When people now display that flag or any battle flag that lost, they are essentially bringing up old aggression and outdated mentality (slavery, denial of Civil Rights, etc.) that, have no place in society today. That is why it is offensive. Because it’s threatening and provocative.
Subjectively, it directly represents the oppression of other Asian countries, rapes and massacres of populations, chemical testing on civilians, forced exporting of comfort women, etc. There’s no arguing about it.

Censorship of curricular competencies of learning has no place in Canadian classrooms. This flag is an historical artifact in an appropriate context. The Holocaust Museum has a Nazi swastika flag on display. Lest we forget people, lest we forget! Maybe this student should actually take the history class instead of gawking through the doorway. Ignorance is a dangerous thing.

We need to respect teachers and how they use educational resources in the classroom.

If we don't remember and teach our history to future generations then they may be doomed to repeat it.

Coming from a past history student of the teacher involved the taking down of the flag makes no sence, as I and many other people recall the subject was taugh in class In fact it was even encouraged to be the topic of an final inquiry project at the end of the year. The entire thing was taken out of context as it is a history classroom meant to teach history. Is this not a part of the history we want taught? The flag was meant used as a topic of discussion a topic of discussion and a topic of inquiry. Not a topic of debate to offend anyone.
