Girls will be girls or leave your purse at home
Based on their prior experience with the Confederate Battle Flag, the school has banned the flag as being a hinderance to a peaceful school - not on free speech or dubious "southern heritage" claims. With this, I agree! (Bud Kennedy, a local columnist, has a great article on this thought.) Since this row has broken out, black students are now concerned. For years, I have said the the various Confederate flags, Nazi flags, and the communist/Soviet flags are just history - nothing more. We, as a society, need to realize the past is gone. Let's cherish were we have been and march on forward together as one society undivided by such symbols as the Confederate flags.
Can we do this?
