We defeated Germany, but we don't fly their flag. We defeated Japan, but we don't fly their flag. Yes, the Confederate Flag represents citizens of the United States of America, but during a time when those Americans were trying to secede from the nation, to split the United States, in an effort to continue racist practices. The Confederacy, with its flag and its commemorated heroes, belongs in museums and history books. It does not belong in 21st century United States of America.
