The United Daughters of the Confederacy® is not a white supremacist organization.  The United Daughters of the Confederacy (UDC) Wikipedia page contains quotes and information from sources that are based on a fundamental misunderstanding of American culture and history in the 19th and 20th Centuries.  The published sources are incorrect and it is offensive to all members of the UDC to have the organization labeled as a promoter of white supremacy.

The following affirmation of the goals of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, and its stance on racist groups, has been published by each President General of the United Daughters of the Confederacy since 2008.  Based on the organization’s stated opposition to groups that promote white supremacy in any form, the references to the United Daughters of the Confederacy as a promoter of white supremacy must be removed from Wikipedia.
