I think we are talking at cross purposes

The intent of hanging the flag of a group you support is different than the intent of capturing the flag of an enemy.

The first is an act of reverence, the second is jeering disrespect.

People in the south don't jeer and laugh at the Confederate flag.  They raise it up a flagpole and salute it.

It's a pretty simple difference, yet a very important one.

I have been very busy so I have not given this thread really much thought , the South will by and large have a different mindset to the much more liberal enlighthened North .

For MANY the Confederate flag is symbolic of many things in a World that has now long gone but in the hearts and legends of these people it is still alive

Yep, and that is why the BLM movement has to exist in the first place.

IF the BLM movement contented itself with looking after its own people then i would agree , it has not and as such will fail , the South was more than just slaves it was about a life style a sense of gallantry and honor , such issues are now deemed so old fashioned and quaint
