The South Carolina legislature voted unanimously to remove the Confederate flag from its State House grounds; several other states have since followed suit. In last week’s poll, we asked if you agree with removing the flag from state grounds.
Respondents are split evenly on this issue, with half agreeing and half disagreeing. Comments included:
“This is part of our history that shouldn’t be forgotten.”
“Do we next pull down all of the Southern Civil War memorials?”
“From state grounds, yes, the Confederate flag should be removed. The problem with many Southern states is they’re living in the past. The Confederacy and all it stood for, especially slavery, is dead and gone. On the other hand, however, this overzealous move to remove that flag from museums, stores, gift shops, etc. is yet another example of political correctness run amuck! Ease up, the Confederate flag is a key part of American history. Just don’t fly that flag at the state buildings!”
