On the Confederate Flag

Last Memorial Day, I talked about seeing a pickup truck at Ohiopyle sporting two Confederate flags fluttering through the wind. I'll save my rant on the problems of this and redneck culture some other day, but suffice it to say that the act of displaying the Confederate flag is nothing but disrespectful at best and racist at worst.

A Westmoreland County blogger shares this sentiment, and he's given a great explanation as to why--probably better than I could. So I encourage you all, especially those of you displaying the Confederate flag, to give it a read and think about what you're supporting and what message you're sending.
