34. Any Canadians reading this?
I've always wanted to say this to some of my Canadian friends, especially the ones who seem to enjoy displaying the cute southern US confederate flag decals on their vehicles - perhaps they see it as some kind of an "in thing".

The confedrate flag is not some cute historical memento from the good old days. As you can see from reading this thread it represents a terrible period in our history and is offensive to most Americans (*who are not biggots or racists).

Of course, any Canadians reading this (on DU) are probably sensitive to this issue already. Perhaps you could tell me why so many other Canadians find this flag cute or nostalgic - or whatever.
