Confederate Flag - Enough Already!

Yesterday, I walked into the Pacific Superstore in Southport where I was greeted by a huge display of apparel and other items made from material printed with the Confederate flag. My stomach knotted as a vision of black Americans hanging from a tree appeared in my mind. I know these symbols don’t represent the good people of today’s South, but as I turned around and walked out of the store I wondered why we keep reminding the world of our past as if it were something to be proud of.
