It is a matter of conjecture whether embracing confederate flag is a matter of national pride for the southern states in their quest for self determination that was defeated by the union soldiers. As a blackman the confederate flag evokes memories of slavery legacy and racism. It is no wonder that the other day I was irked when I saw a Hillbilly in surfside beach in South Carolina driving a Golf cart with a Huge Confederate flags hoisted. I wondered if the hillbilly would be offended at my presence in his state and beach.
What are your feelings once you sight the confederate flag?
NB the Hillbilly was a Middle aged man of over 47 years
