Confederate symbols are still celebrated despite the ugly history they symbolize. John Oliver suggests some representations of southern pride that involve less racism and more Stephen Colbert.

If we’re really going to keep the confederate statues, they can’t be on display. They need to be put in a history museum so we can remember them, but we don’t commemorate them.

I punched a innocent kid in the eye to prove I was tough to my friends. It is my history, but I don't remember it fondly. I use it as a leash for my own aggression, to remember how wrong it felt and how bad I was acting. I did a bad thing, and I certainly don't try to "white wash" it. I sucked, I paid a price, I still pay a price, and that's just fine.

@DM G3 I am a functionalist. It just needs to work. And, in this world, being bigger makes you right. That's why we spend so much money on our military. But, you also need to keep it working. The main thing that keeps a democracy working is faith. Even if it doesn't work, people need to believe it does. And if it doesn't work, our enemies don't need to break anything. They just need you to believe it doesn't work. So, no mater if it was true or not, the idea that our president would cast doubt on the foundation of our democracy, for any reason, the idea that he were to say the vote fraudulent if he lost, does the work of our enemies for them.

The Vietnam war attempted to maintain a racist colonial power and killed a million Vietnamese, should we take down the the Vietnam War Memorial? That being said I do think all the Confederate monuments should be taken down they were put up back in like the 50's to make a specific political point, they're not good history but I'm not a big believer in flags, monuments, parades, or any of that stuff. It's all a form of coercion and a regression of individual consciousness

@D Tops Of course the constitutionality was considered. Unilateral secession is unconstitutional, as James Madison explained (and he would know!), both Lincoln and Lee freely acknowledged, and every single court to consider the question has confirmed, including the United States and Alaska Supreme Courts.

@RonPaulHatesBlacks .... I think you're missing my point where does it physically say in the Constitution that states are not allowed to secede? ?... but I guess it really doesn't matter does it? When the South decided to seceded the north took military action to bring them back into the Union.... the constitutionality of it wasn't considered at that point, the gun was?
RonPaulHatesBlacks 8 gün önce
@D Tops Snowflakes in Texas like to whine and cry about it, but unilateral secession is unconstitutional. As even Scalia said, “If there was any constitutional issue resolved by the Civil War, it is that there is no right to secede. (Hence, in the Pledge of Allegiance, ‘one Nation, indivisible.’)”

@Lacroyyy No, because they don't have America in their name. Americans are called Americans because it's in the name of a sovereign nation. Confederates could be considered Southern Americans, and they still were by birth right. The north is usually referred to as the Union, not the United States, when talking about the war

I grew up Catholic in Oregon, a total racist state. My church had a cross burning in front of our rectory by the KKK IN MY LIFETIME and I am 60 years old. The KKK and the proud Boys are active in Oregon, Washington and Idaho. Those states have actively called to SECEDE from the United States to form a "white nationalist country " from the 1880's and still do. I live in California now. My family never fought for the racist KKK they hated us because Catholics were their targets, we were Catholic, French Canadian Catholic and Scottish Catholic Canadian and Potowatomi first nations. So, thank God, I was not related to those monsters.

The confederate flag represents many things to many people. The abolition of slavery is very much a step forward in the human condition. The stars and bars means that the government is not to be considered absolute. There is a multitude of dispicable, and self serving actions taken by our government. Slaves were owned all over the country not just in the south. Most southerners were poor sharecroppers who lived in conditions not much better than the slaves themselves. To condemn everyone who lived in the south by the actions of rich white plantation owners, who were the only ones who could even afford slaves, is just as ignorant as the idea of owning a human being. I was raised to hate racism, and to recognize the difference between color and culture.

@Lacroyyy actually i came to doubt both versions. my veiws may appear that way but it is more relative to a genuine distaste for the government, and a seething hatred for greedy, rich, power hungry, individuals that own large companies and same for plantation owners. I love my country, but hate the government. during a short period of incarceration I was blessed to come accross a book, Concise history of the US from i think the author was Neville Macinnley, it was awhile back. but it was completely factual, without bias. that was the version i chose to believe. i can explain more at a later time if you are interested.
Lacroyyy 4 gün önce
@Travis Capehart after reading, why did you choose to believe the history you were taught as a kid. Also the war wasn't about oppression, it was about 1 thing monetary gain, the South economy was dependant on slaves. So the war was about slavery.

Yes the south was fighting for a bad reason, but they still fought for something they believed in. You can respect loyalty to a cause, even if it isn't a good one. That doesn't mean you should condone the cause if it's blatantly a bad one however. I realize this is probably going to be an unpopular take on this, but it's my thought on this and I'm not going force anyone to agree with me.

@Pierre Bezukhov Thanks. I appreciate a reply from someone who really seems to have understanding of the society at the time. I want to point out I'm NOT comparing the two historical catastrophes and I think the term 'brainwashing' is useful in explaining nothing. But it's hard to think beyond what society teaches you especially if you're unaware alternatives exist. At the end of WW2 so many Germans said variations on the theme "Of course we hated the Jews. It was taught to us as a matter of fact and common sense from the moment we were old enough to think'. While the South never approached Germany in terms of barbarism it's a lot to ask people to think beyond the limits of the society they're brought up in. Many were surprised the rest of the world didn't feel the anti-semitism with their vehemence. To think outside the box when the box is your whole universe asks a lot. Probably far too much. Thanks for clearing up an element of the antebellum South that always was murky to me. Another obvious question is why did so many poor go out and fight and die for a minority of rich aristocrats but it's not as though that's changed much in the intervening years.

"Why they fought and died for aristocrats who did own slaves I'd need a Southerner to explain to me." Well, if you didn't own slaves you could rent them if the need arose. More importantly African slavery, to the Southern mind, wasn't merely an economic system or a social construct. No, it was a Religious Sacrament. Just about every Sunday those that owned slaves and those that did not would gather at a church where the congregation would be harangued by the preacher with the message the slavery was God's Ordained Plan for African People. Those that fought to defend the institution of African slavery were doing the Lord's Work.
