If I see someone carrying the flag on their porch or whatever, I don’t automatically assume they’re racists. I judge someone by the character they exhibit, not by a piece of cloth they carry.
Even before this, I assumed that someone who had the flag was someone prideful in their southern heritage, not because they hate blacks. I agree with them taking it off the capital to honor the victims though. But I think it’s stupid how they’re going as far as to remove the flag from museums. It’s a part of history, why would you do that???
What bothers me more is that media cares more about this (along with everyone jumping on the bandwagon) than the 9 dead victims. People seem to be more concerned about removing the flags from stores like walmart, removing memorabilia that has to do with it, vandalizing histroical places. That doesn’t do much in the long run and vandalizing places doesn’t fix shit.
