The state of Georgia joined eight other states including Virginia with the release of a new specialty license tag that features the Confederate battle flag, inflaming civil rights advocates and renewing a debate on what images should appear on state-issued materials.
The new specialty tag has stirred a clash between those who believe the battle flag honors Confederate heritage and those, particularly African-Americans, who view it as a racially charged symbol of oppression.

What’s Your Take? History Emblem or Sign of Oppression?

Every time I see one of these or thos "patriots" marching down Monument Ave in Richmond,it makes my blood crawl.The Lost and this symbol is nothing bu a sign of hate and a desire to refight the civil war

I am sorry you didn't get to go into this story more deeply. It is less about the flag and more about the officials that we elect and their true feelings about us. I hope you have time to get to this when you are back live.

I agree with Mark

Have we Black people just given up.Where is the cry out for justice. I live here in the heart of the confederacy and we just accept the fact that we have to live with state sponsored bigotry. We in Va should be just as ashamed as Georgia

Chris is an example of how we are destined to repeat our past. That flag empowers the racists that fly it
