Danny, it's funny that you bring up the confederate flag. When I read Trp's post I was going to say something about this same thing, although not the situation you pointed out. Not being from the South or the Northeast, I wasn't quite sure how to approach it. I don't really have any frame of reference to use. So I will put it this way. To me a flag is a flag. I don't think it necessarily equates to any one action or agenda but instead represents as a whole. So to respond to you Danny, I would say that it should not be an issue. If a black person were wearing a Confederate Flag, I would take it to mean that he has some personal attachment to the Southern States. Probably born and raised in the South but it wouldn't matter. Regardless of what happened in history (why the Confederate Flag came to be), the Confederate Flag will always be used as a representation of the Southern States. It doesn't necessarily make it a bad thing. People will always read whatever they feel into the situation. Sometimes, rightfully so, sometimes not. Does this make any sense?
