A Southern Girl and the Confederate Flag

I’ve been following these stories for the last few days and this article comes pretty darned close to how I feel about the Confederate flag. I used to love the Confederate flag as a kid. I dated a guy who had it proudly displayed in the back of his truck (y’all DO remember tall Wayne!). As an adult, I simply accepted it as part of my Southern heritage. However, the Confederate flag scale has tipped from being a symbol of Southern heritage to a symbol of hatred. I don’t want to think of both symbols as being synonymous. I love being a Southerner. I don’t love being associated with hate.
