Confederate symbols are still celebrated despite the ugly history they symbolize. John Oliver suggests some representations of southern pride that involve less racism and more Stephen Colbert.

    There is nuance to some of the confederate figures (and not all unionists were angels) but bottom line is they are on the wrong side of history and certainly supported slavery.
    I remember reading somewhere that the timing of emancipation was fraught, the union leadership were worried that it would be too unpopular but they needed to act or the British were going to intervene. The British needed cotton for their cotton mills which were sitting idle, the emancipation declaration short circuited this as the British populace were pro emancipation.
    You guys should keep the statues but place them in full context and maybe not in the town square.

      @DM G3 I am a functionalist. It just needs to work. And, in this world, being bigger makes you right. That's why we spend so much money on our military. But, you also need to keep it working. The main thing that keeps a democracy working is faith. Even if it doesn't work, people need to believe it does. And if it doesn't work, our enemies don't need to break anything. They just need you to believe it doesn't work. So, no mater if it was true or not, the idea that our president would cast doubt on the foundation of our democracy, for any reason, the idea that he were to say the vote fraudulent if he lost, does the work of our enemies for them.

    I grew up Catholic in Oregon, a total racist state. My church had a cross burning in front of our rectory by the KKK IN MY LIFETIME and I am 60 years old. The KKK and the proud Boys are active in Oregon, Washington and Idaho. Those states have actively called to SECEDE from the United States to form a "white nationalist country " from the 1880's and still do. I live in California now. My family never fought for the racist KKK they hated us because Catholics were their targets, we were Catholic, French Canadian Catholic and Scottish Catholic Canadian and Potowatomi first nations. So, thank God, I was not related to those monsters.

    The confederate flag represents many things to many people. The abolition of slavery is very much a step forward in the human condition. The stars and bars means that the government is not to be considered absolute. There is a multitude of dispicable, and self serving actions taken by our government. Slaves were owned all over the country not just in the south. Most southerners were poor sharecroppers who lived in conditions not much better than the slaves themselves. To condemn everyone who lived in the south by the actions of rich white plantation owners, who were the only ones who could even afford slaves, is just as ignorant as the idea of owning a human being. I was raised to hate racism, and to recognize the difference between color and culture.

      @Lacroyyy actually i came to doubt both versions. my veiws may appear that way but it is more relative to a genuine distaste for the government, and a seething hatred for greedy, rich, power hungry, individuals that own large companies and same for plantation owners. I love my country, but hate the government. during a short period of incarceration I was blessed to come accross a book, Concise history of the US from i think the author was Neville Macinnley, it was awhile back. but it was completely factual, without bias. that was the version i chose to believe. i can explain more at a later time if you are interested.

      @Travis Capehart after reading, why did you choose to believe the history you were taught as a kid. Also the war wasn't about oppression, it was about 1 thing monetary gain, the South economy was dependant on slaves. So the war was about slavery.

    I had an ancestor fight for the confederacy, he deserted and hid in the Appalachian mountains and abandoned his family, for years my family went hungry because there was only one parent in the house for the kids. So he sucks, he may have been drafted, the confederacy did have the first draft in U.S. territory but it's impossible or at least really hard to figure out. I'm connected to this but I still know that the confederacy was evil.
