North Carolina removed the confederate battle flag from the old capital after civil rights leaders expressed concerns. I have to agree with their decision to take it down. It’s a beautiful flag, and means a lot to some people. However, is is offensive to others, and it hurts those people. For this reason, it should not be displayed. However, I do have a problem with something. So much controversy has been generated by the Confederate Battle Flag. But no one ever talks about the “Stars and Bar’s” flag, or the “Bonnie Blue” flag. Are these not Confederate Flags also.
