Is the confederate flag reportable?

You guys can argue all day whether or not the confederate (or rebel) flag is racist. Some will always believe it is and some will always believe it wasn't. Let's not forget that it symbolizes the confederate states of america in all of their endeavors and ideology. While this does include slavery, it is not the mainstay of the confederate mentality. The country went to war over secession. The idea of the confederacy is a government where the individual states have more power than the entity of their union.

That being said, lets take a minute and realize that this is a game about war. Wars fought by countries and represented by their flags. All flags should be fair game. Yes, there have been political factions that have committed atrocities such as genocide, slavery and biological war. These entities have only changed their flags in the face of revolution, modernization or the face of defeat. All historical flags should be fair game.

If you want to report them because you're offended, maybe you should consider playing a different game that doesn't offend your sensible nature. It is just a game we play to have fun, but let us not forget that war itself is a very serious thing.

No it is not, its one of the state flags.

This is the first national Confederate flag, often referred to as the "Stars and Bars":

That flag is different from the Confederate Battle Flag that most people think of as the Confederate flag. That's all I'm saying. I'm not taking about state flags at all.

The "Confederate Flag" was my school symbol. We called ourselves the "Rebels". Nobody at my school was racist so I don't see how it would be reportable. To each their own I guess.


Nobody eh? LOL.

I will try and see it from your point of view, but I doubt we'll be able to fit both our heads up there.

Having the collective winners in the Most Obese and Uneducated states in the union?

Seeing as the state of Mississippi has the confederate battle flag as part of its own flag, I'd no, not reportable. now if it said something like "All ******* must die" along with the flag, then yes, reportable.

do you like to generalize and make fun of dumb Southern blacks or are you as gutless as I imagine and just enjoy the dumb, white southerner stereotype? alot of these people down south are alot smarter than you, in much better shape and all around better than you.
