Confederate flag and our rights

The Confederate flag and other such battle flags from the Civil War era have no place in American society.

They not only represent the racism and bigotry of the highest kind in the condoning of slavery, but they also represent acts of sedition and treason to the United States.

Such acts are now being heard again from conservative Southern politicians, who are raising the possibility of their states seceding.

These politicians are doing all they can to once again suppress the civil rights and voting rights of people of other races.
