    Heck,

    We were/are killed under both flags. I say let it fly as
    a reminder of who/what we, as black folk, are dealing with.

    That, which the rebel flag has come represents need
    to be 'taken down'.

    Until that happens, I say let if fly.

    True, both flags represent some kind of mastication of Black folk, but lets hope that the lost of 9 innocence Black lives that mattered is enough to remove the rebel war flag, at least.
