Confederate flags & violence
You can't change history!
Confederate flags, statues and what was the Confederate States of America are part of the history of the United States whether the politicians and people like it or not.
Confederate flags and statues don't commit crimes. If our politicians think that removing flags and statues from society will end the violence and evil acts being committed, then they had better wake up. Anyone with the intent to kill will do so regardless of whether they're waving a flag or standing in front of a statute as part of their message.
Those behind this sudden rally to eliminate anything associated with the Confederate Army, flags and statues cannot wipe out or change our history. What next? Remove all grave markers of Confederate soldiers?
This is just another sad and pathetic act that our government thinks will solve all of the problems of the U.S. The reality is the government is the problem.
