TBT: Sen. Moseley Braun on the Confederate flag

"To suggest as a matter of revisionist history that this flag is not about slavery flies in the face of history." Throwback to when the first black woman senator, Carol Moseley Braun, took to the Senate floor to explain what symbols of the Confederacy represent.

    The truth is plain to see and to deny it youre either racist or ignorant. If youre not racist then educate yourself. https://youtu.be/QOPGpE-sXh0

    Okay...that was in 1993. What has she done while in office to help? Or did she finally realize that a single vote cannot get a bill passed? Like rest of the politicians promising things....they are only a single vote. How are they going to get enough votes to get their bill passed?

    Why is her skin color relevant? Oh wait. It’s not. It only matters if you can do your job. Have a quality character. And morals.

    She is right, though why is she a Democrat? History should never be forgotten and i firmly believe it should be taught. However as independents, Republicans or American patriots, monuments to the Confederacy, the flag shouldnt have ever been allowed. They were traitors to the Union and they should spark anger in those who faught against them and thier ideology. There are other ways to remember the Civil War. That being said, how any person of color would EVER align with the one party who even up to the civil rights movement were opposed to equal rights or thier freedom is beyond my comprehension.

    It's a part of the history in America, can't irradiate history, the good or the bad. We must learn from it. Just the way if we wanted to obliterate any remembrance of the Holocaust We must learn from the mistakes in our history or they will be reaped again..
