Confederate battle flag announces bigotry, like it or not
Placeholder Image

So much has been written about the Confederate battle flag. Let’s face it, like it or not, that flag has been adopted by hate groups as their symbol. If you fly it you are announcing to the world that you are bigot and racist. Sorry, but that’s a fact. If that is your purpose, go ahead.

Now, if you want to show appreciation for the Confederacy, then fly the first flag of the Confederacy. It looks a lot like the Georgia state flag.
