A Confederacy of DuncesThere's an implied assertion here that just*****es me off. Being a Southerner does not make me a racist or an advocate of slavery. Slavery is and was an abomination.
I had no say in choosing my ancestors. None of us do. My great-great-grandfather and great-great-granduncle served with General Pemberton at the siege of Vicksburg, were captured when the city fell, and were imprisoned at Sandusky, where my g'uncle died. Their grandfather was a veteran of the Revolutionary War. I'm proud of them all, so which flag should I fly? The Confederate, or the Stars and Stripes?
Representative Wilson has no cause for shame in being "proud" of the Confederate flag, nor of his Southern heritage.
