Now the debate about the confederate flags and statues down south have raised bitter arguments. And I believe they should all be taken down. Obviously America hasn't learned anything from the defeat of the South because the #KKK is still legal (they're actually the ones being protected by the police), you can wave the #confederateflag around and nothing will happen to you and you can go riding by screaming racial obscenities at #POC and nothing will happen to you. You can even block POC from renting your apartments & spend years trying to delegitimize the first black president and people will elect you as their next president. People keep trying to use that excuse that the war was about economics. No, the war was about the South wanting to keep their slaves not economics. If by economics they mean people didn't want to lose their "property" (otherwise known as slaves) because that's how they made their money then yes you're right. It was because of economics. Someone told me Southerners wanted to be treated equally? And they decided to do this by fighting a war to keep people enslaved? Does that make sense to anyone? People are trying to tell me that if the south didn't fight to keep its slaves then we would not be as freed as we are now? Well I know a couple of my ancestors would disagree with that backwards statement. In fact I'm 100% 15 million people (not including their descendants) would disagree with this argument (rightfully). The entire point was the south wanted to keep their slaves. The slaves made them money. Maybe these arguments works with the delusional base but it's not gonna work with people who actually know their true history. And I've come to realize that when people say "Great Again" they mean they wish the old south would rise again. The ones who claim that flag are nothing but racist pieces of trash because the KKK claims that very flag. And why claim the flag of an army that was against the Union? Misguided patriotism (and serious racism) there.
