As true as that might be, slavery was becoming obsolete. Maybe with the invention of new machinery the plantations would have still maintained slaves... but who wants to feed, house, clothe, and take care of one type of farm equipment when there's another that does the same or greater amount of work with steam and coal? There's always that chance that given more time the south would have had their own epiphany and stopped the practice of slavery. It's just conjecture, but racism and hatred may live on longer than it should just because we had a war and emancipation was forced. It's like a giant seed by which hatred will continue to grow.
I'm not saying I am of the opinion that all I've said is true. I'm mostly throwing bits of information out into the open because it needs to be seen and discussed.
Some of our nation's finest are in fact the world's finest... but some of them are also some of the world's worst. If you talked to some of our military men and women about all of the things they've done over there without provocation, then you'd be ashamed. I used to wonder why a lot of places out there supposedly hated us... and aside from the religious reasons and that kind of stuff I know now a little more as to why.
I think the progeny of the confederacy flying the flag has potential to show that people can change and that they can progress towards a better tomorrow without hiding their garbage. I do believe that those who participate in the southern states flag group things actively work against the KKK and try to work against racism in the here and now. I think they're called the Sons of the Confederacy or something like that... they even let a few black guys join! That's pretty honorable, right?
And there is an organization called the Sons of the Confederacy. It's largely historical in nature, and to get in you just show you had a relative fight in the war. Outside of a monthly email, it hasn't changed my life too much.
Just a thought, but one worth thinking about: Rather than seeing the flag as symbolic of something and judging the person who displays it, why not treat the flag as nothing more than a flag, and judge the person who displays it based on their own individual merits? It would be rather hypocritical, I think, to talk about reducing racism and ignorance, and then lump everyone who displays the flag as racist and ignorant. You're better off suggesting all Southerners wear cowboy hats, or that we all drive tractors.
