This shit is too funny.





CNN/ORC poll: 57% see Confederate flag as Southern pride




American public opinion on the Confederate flag remains about where it was 15 years ago, with most describing the flag as a symbol of Southern pride more than one of racism, according to a new CNN/ORC poll. And questions about how far to go to remove references to the Confederacy from public life prompt broad racial divides.







The poll shows that 57% of Americans see the flag more as a symbol of Southern pride than as a symbol of racism, about the same as in 2000 when 59% said they viewed it as a symbol of pride. Opinions of the flag are sharply divided by race, and among whites, views are split by education.







Among African-Americans, 72% see the Confederate flag as a symbol of racism, just 25% of whites agree. In the South, the racial divide is even broader. While 75% of Southern whites describe the flag as a symbol of pride and 18% call it a symbol of racism, those figures are almost exactly reversed among Southern African-Americans, with just 11% seeing it as a sign of pride and 75% viewing it as a symbol of racism.

During the time anti-miscegenation laws were before SCOTUS (Loving v. Virginia) 66% of Americans thought interracial marriage was a very bad thing.

That was in 1967....Just sayin'.

Unlike Loving v. Virginia it's not the state or feds that's really pushing the anti-flag agenda. It's really a media victory and due in very large part to South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley running her fucking yap. Had the bitch just deferred to the SC legislature the whole thing would have went away in a few days.

That should be remembered going forward if the bitch has any VP aims.
