The Confederate flag is not a symbol of southern pride but rather a symbol of rebellion and racism. On the heels of the brutal killing of nine Black people in a South Carolina church by a racist terrorist, it's time to put that symbol of rebellion and rac

Robert-- After I saw AniMae's comment about her name not showing on the list, I went back to check and the same was true for me as well. I tried it twice without luck.

Also please take the time when you can to learn about the Gullah Geechee people of Charleston, a community that has been deeply wounded from the recent tragedy.
They are a beautiful culture that is often shamed & ignored, and they are currently facing a relocation/displacement crisis as they are in jeopardy of losing their farms and land. They would really appreciate your comfort & support. They are present on most social media such as Facebook, Twitter, & Youtube. I'll provide a few links of information below.

I keep reading that this flag has no meaning and is just a symbol of the south. True, the worst part of the southern thinking is emblematic in this flag. Fly it at home if you must, or place it in a museum, but remove it from government buildings. - Already signed, thanks Bob.

There is far too much bad news emanating from South Carolina. News which, to my mind, exhibits an "Aryan State" culture. There is striking behavior and attitudes which show similarities with the behavior and cultural values of an infamous northern European political party, which caught the attention of the world in the mid 20th century.

I choose to disassociate with and discourage that attitude to the degree that I can in my own humble and small way, I will choose to use products and services that are not from South Carolina. I cannot in good conscience support racial or cultural superiority and inhuman disregard for others or those that support / tolerate it. For now I will have to spend additional time and effort before I make my purchases.

Much nicer to deal with folks who make an effort to deal with diversity of cultural views and values in a manner that brings out the best in what humanity has to offer.

As I see it, the Confederate Flag Is a symbol of White Supremacy/Oppression of Black People and should not be sanctioned by any of the United States. I believe in freedom of speech and if a citizen wants to fly it, that is of course their right. This act, to my understanding, is a way to display their racist feelings, and shows me who to avoid when given a choice. The Southern U.S. States should only display the Confederate Flag in Civil War Museums. The only true and current Confederate Flag is a White Flag of surrender.

Noted and signed. All Confederate flags should be assigned to the nearest Civil War museum or destroyed. This flag should never be allowed to fly on any public property. And while they're at it, I agree with Jon Stewart in that all those Avenues, Boulevards, and Streets being named after Civil War Generals; it just shoves it in their face that the South lost the war. Maybe it's time to move on and join the 21st Century instead of continuing to live in the 19th Century.

Since South Carolina lead the secession on 20/12/1860, perhaps it would like to go it alone again. It obviously has no respect for the nation. As an aside, there are many people in SC that do respect the nation.
