Letter: Confederate flag symbolizes racism

Confederate flag symbolizes racism

I am writing in response to the writer who believes it is unfair to declare the Confederate flag as racist. Please read these words from William Thompson, the creator of the Confederate flag, and the symbolism behind it and judge for yourselves.

“As a people we are fighting to maintain the heavenly ordained supremacy of the white man over the inferior or colored race; a white flag would thus be emblematical of our cause.”
