In a three second clip of Strom Thurmond's funeral, it showed [b]a black man dressed in a Confederate Uniform carrying the Confederate Battle Flag in front of the caisson![/b] Sonuvabeitch! I wonder how many liberals saw that too!

Yea thats right. The flag is not about slaves. I bet that was a lot for them to swallow.

I SAW IT TOO! i looked at the wife and we both said said look at that! it'll be the last time you see it, i'll bet [;)]. i have seen other stuff that slips by and it gets edited quickly. another thing i noticed while on vacation - we visited an a.m.e. zion church in beaufort on the old homes tour. its the oldest church building in the town. they were a mixed congregation until AFTER the war between the states. my home church in fayetteville was the same way. it appears that reconstruction and affirmative action (the reconstruction of the modern day) have a more negative effect on race relations than any good that can be dug up by statisticians.

It's amazing how many ignorant people think the civil war was about freeing the slaves.

Don't you mean "The War of Northern Aggression"? That nasty conflict over the rights of states? Seems like we saw vestiges of that in 2000 with the Presidential election.

Reminds me of that Dave Chappell skit with him as a blind white supremacist leader.

Abe Lincoln was a civil rights champion and fought for the black man and freed the slaves and that man at Thurmond's funeral was very confused. [/bs]

Maybe you could edit the title of the post, with strom's name, so folks know what you're talking about. You'd get more comments. I saw a couple of clips, but was surprised, the whole thing wasn't televised?? I mean, this guy was high enough profile, from "the greatest generation", and no one broadcasts the whole Funeral Service, and burial?? Anyone know if cspan covered it??

If that was HK he's from my neck of woods and a stand up guy. He's taken some serious crap for being a black supporter of the flag. You guys would like him. CRC

A little surpprising. When Mississippi was going through some controversy about their flag ( blacks were saying because it had the battle flag in it, it was racist) a group of blacks that forfathers fought for the south went to the capital,Jackson, and with battle flags in hand protested in favor of having the battle flag as a part of Mississippi's state flag. A FEW black people in this country are not brain washed.
