I recommend you read the book, "The Confederate Battle Flag: America's Most Embattled Emblem" by John M. Coski. It is an objective look at the controversy.
Remember that there is always two stories to every issue. There are many, many hate groups that incorporate the symbols of Islam, the Christian Flag, the American Flag, etc.
Regardless what many like to portray..there is not a Klansman behind every tree in the South about to say BOOO! It is because the trash and the load mouths on both sides get the publicity and big fat checks for saying the sky is falling.
Enjoy the reading.
