    Well maybe so. If that happens I’ll deal with it. I certainly won’t be whining and crying about it on a message board like my entire existence is adversely impacted

    Quite a few people actually. Reread this thread and you’ll see some

    Doesn't matter. They just tore down a General Grant monument. Let that sink in.

    I grew up in GA but now I live in PA and occasionally make a trip to Gettysburg. There are multiple tour offerings including self guided one that I prefer, which allows you to take your time soaking in everything that happened in that place. This Civil War is an incredible part of our history, and I would venture to bet 99% of Americans today are pleased with the outcome. 99% of them also now believe the end of slavery was a good thing. As a nation and a people we became better as a result of that war. Gettysburg is a powerful monument to that progress and something I think every American would benefit from experiencing. If the statues of confederate solders (and even union solders) were to be torn down, it would be a like erasing our past. We learn from our past. Erasing it is a scary thought, and might just have the opposite effect on future generations.

    Changing a state flag, to represent who we are today and how we have evolved as a unified people, by removing historic symbols of the confederacy that offend and threaten a group of people, is unequivocally the right thing to do. But calling the star-spangled banner a symbol of white supremacy is untrue and dangerous. It is a symbol that unites us and a symbol that a lot of brave men and women (of all races) have bleed and died for. Misrepresenting it to be a symbol for anything else is the work of evil forces. As Americans we should all fight against those forces to preserve what unites us.
