Having lived in SC when the discussion to remove or not to remove it from the state capitol offended me to no end. My family has three dead in a family plot who wore Union Blue. To hear many a person in that state of a particular persuasion it is all about heritage and people should mind their own business. I cry BS, it is a fallacy to think it has anything to do with heritage and nothing to do with racism. I think these guys in this image can easily dispel the heritage claim.
As a black man, I say take the flag down from government buildings only, because government buildings should be for all the people. Having said that, it's a part of history, so leave it alone when it's flying from someone's private property or it's in a museum. Those who forget history are condemned to repeat it.
