The Second Confederate Jack (1863- 1865)
Most people look at this flag and think it is a symbol of racism due to the fact that the Confederate States of America practiced slavery. What they fail to realize is that it is also called the “Rebel Flag,” and it’s called this for a reason.
The Confederacy was formed because the people in those states felt that they were being made second-class citizens by the existing government. Just because slavery was part of the Confederate way of life, it doesn’t mean that the nation was representative of racism. The Confederacy and its flag were, and still are, a symbol of rebellion against an unfair, intrusive government.

Reblog if this flag is not racist, and those who think it is need to pick up a history book.

Rebel Flag billowing in the sunlight after a trashy/classy party in Tennessee. 

If you really think this flag is a declaration of hate and that the Civil War was really over slavery you need to do some damn research. Educate yourselves. Southern and proud.
