Flags are symbols—that is their essence.
I believe in free speech and the right to display whatever flag one chooses.
But I also believe in the right of others to exercise their free speech in condemning what they believe to be the symbolism of a flag.
And I support those who don’t believe the Confederate flag is an appropriate state symbol in 2015.
Reasonable...and frankly, I don’t think it’s a hill worth dying on anyway. For either side.
I can't speak for North Carolina, but in Mississippi we voted on this issue, and some 60% of us voted to keep the flag. I don't believe we should have to hold another vote everytime some race-baiters want to stir up sh*t by rallying anti-whites and using the flag as their rallying point. That would be multiple times per year. Then if they ever won a vote, it would be definitive and eternal, just like Roe v Wade has been. "The issue is settled".
