 I am sorry, BUT  NOT ALL OF OUR HISTORY IS  " G O O D  " ...   This flag is a very IMPORTANT part of our history...   You can NOT JUST TAKE  " A W A Y "   the parts you do not like...   Next, they will not teach about the Civil War in schools...   Come on move into the REAL WORLD, where NOT EVERYTHING  IS  PEACHES & CREAM ...   It is part of GROWING UP   to be able to take the good with the bad,  I guess I am done...   J M O ...

I would simply ask the question of those protesting that flag - Do you understand what that flag truly represented when it was designed and used?

It was all about states rights. That was the basis of the civil war, not slavery.

In today's (6/12/20) Rochester newspaper's sports section, there was a lengthy article by one of the USA Today staff writers, about how it's time that NASCAR finally became "politically correct", and banned the confederate flag. Apparently this particular writer hasn't done his homework, and understands that auto racing fans are a pretty "hard core" group of fans, and they DON'T mix sports and politics very well. He also doesn't seem to understand that NASCAR has been on a decline, the last several years, and additional controversy is the LAST thing they need to generate.

Bubba in the #43 is all about the money, it ain't about his driving ability.
