Don't ban the Confederate flag

Don't ban the Confederate flag

Letter to the Editor:

I recently read a letter (June 20) by Mr. Noble condemning the Confederate flag as a symbol of horror. Shall we also ban the American flag? It was flown in this country while we crucified and murdered the American Indians. The early Chinese and Japanese settlers were enslaved in this country under the American flag.

There is no perfect country. This is not a perfect world, and when you stop teaching history and start removing history, it has a way of repeating itself.

Freedom of Speech is our Constitutional right, and the only ones who would limit it are the ones who only want their opinions known. Don't ban the flag.

Gerald Bruckner
