Confederate flag what is it and why is it controversial





What is the Confederate flag?

The Confederate flag- a 13-star saltire in red, white and blue has been recognized as the symbol of the American South. It came to be used during the time of the American Civil War, since 1861-65, which was startled by the issue of slavery. Seven southern later began to rebel over the President Abraham Lincolnâs anti-slavery legislation and secession from the United States.

The Confederate flag was later taken as a battle flag by the Army of Northern Virginia. It was never made to represent the Confederate States of America also called Confederacy-but later came to be known as the symbol of the American South.

Despite the loss by the CSA, the Confederate flag- also called as the rebel flag, the Dixie flag, battle flag and Southern Cross progressed to be flown. During the Second World War, Southern military units flew the flag. At the time of the civil rights movement in the year the 1950s and 60s, the flag became the symbol of segregation and was taken by the Ku Klux Klan. It has further appeared in a lot of popular culture references.

Why is it controversial?

Supporters of the given flag see it as a symbol if ancestry and heritage. To them, it shows a distinct cultural tradition of the South that is separate from the other United States. It is well attached to the representation of the Statesâ rights against what is perceived as an overbearing federal jurisdiction.

However, a lot of Americans, the flag represents slavery hatred and the white supremacy.

Matthew Guterl is a professor of Africana and American Studies at the University of Brown. He spoke to the Washington post where he said that when people refer heritage not hate, they are simply removing the obvious which is the heritage hate. He further says that when refers to it about history, then that particular history can never be separated from hate because it concerns hate. It is all about racism and slavery.

It is also important to disclaim any relation of these flags to neo-Nazis and red-necks. These groups have acquired this flag and desecrated it by their acts. They have no permission to use the above âit is a flag of great honor, designed by the conference as a banner to represent stateâs rights and still get revered by the South. During an attack, it can still fly over the South Carolina capitol building. The south usually refutes any association of these hate groups and rejects the rights for them to use the flags of the Confederacy for any mere purposes. The crimes done by such groups under the stolen banner that belongs to the alliance only displays the lies which the link secession to slavery gains when from the Southernerâs look, the cause was the stateâs rights.
