Re: “Reader: I'm fed up with the hate being spewed at the symbols of our history

If the writer of this letter actually KNEW the recorded words of William Tappan Thompson she would keep quiet about "revisionist" history. This isn't revision;
These are HIS words;
"As a people, we are fighting to maintain the Heaven-ordained supremacy of the white man over the inferior or colored race; a white flag would thus be emblematical of our cause. Such a flagwould soon take rank among the proudest ensigns of the nations, and be hailed by the civilized world as THE WHITE MAN'S FLAG."-William Tappan Thompson
Combine that with the fact that the "rebel flag" was used by the KKK and others who fought integration from the 1940s until today and it becomes very hard to understand how someone can deny that it's a symbol of racism more than it is any other thing. "

It IS a flag representing racial hatred, no matter what revision the "daughter" of "The South" wishes to apply.
