The secret history of the Confederate Flag

What we know as the Confederate flag was actually never a flag of the Confederacy. Here's the history of a symbol that many are fighting to ban across the nation.

    What i have never understood is when racism is being talked about its always white ppl. They don't talk about Malcom x or the black Panthers why is that

    Its people who hate not a flag that is part of southern heritage not hate. The flag is only part of real history. You cant erace history. But it's the deep state os trying and successfully putting a wedge between the races. If they can decide us then conquer us. There will e no middle class only rich and slaves they want to cause the down fall of America cause anarchy. Then take over and we all will be their slaves. And you think Biden and the rest of those Democrats care about minorities. They dont but people keep voting for them and when they loose elections they just steel them.

    I'm from California an never saw this traitors flag there. It would have been torn down and burned. I moved to Florida 2009 and was shocked to see this flag publicly displayed

    The flag is fine as long it’s on private property.

    I can't believe people are surprised! People apparently do not know their true history no matter how many civil war statues of the Confederacy have been erected! So they say we will forget our history if there's statues are taken down yet they don't even know the true history even when they are standing up! 🤬

    The german nutzis had theirs and the American nutzis have this. Somehow, somewhere there is trump written on that flag.

    It’s not freedom of speech, it’s racism.

    The Civil War was never just about slavery, it's main issue and catalyst was bigger federal vs bigger state government.

    Proud of my confederate ancestors no matter what. History ain’t there to like or dislike. It’s there to learn from.
