After reading the article about a white woman, living in a historically black neighborhood in South Carolina, and proudly waving a confederate flag in her front yard I was disgusted. I find it extremely disturbing that anyone could be that rude. She tried justifying herself by saying it’s a part of her heritage and she is not racist, but I have a very hard time believing that. Even if she was just proud of her heritage it doesn’t make it okay. I can’t imagine anyone in that neighborhood really appreciates seeing that everyday, reminding them of a horrible time in history. She was quoted saying “If the objective was to block my house from view, they didn’t succeed very well.” That alone makes me think that she finds it amusing that others are offended by her flag. She wasn’t even alive for the Civil War.. how proud can she really be? I think she’s just ignorant and she’s lucky that no one in the neighborhood has taken other actions against her.
