Yesterday while driving I noticed a peculiar license plate on the truck in front of me. Instead of the normal Tennessee plate, a "Friend of the Smokies" plate, an "I love kids"-type plate, or any of the other license plates you can get for your car here, I saw a Tennessee plate with a confederate flag on it. For real.

The South is weird.

Some say that the confederate flag represents their pride in being from the south and that it is not a symbol of southern oppression of minorities. I can't quite grasp that concept as almost everyone I know who wears/flies the confederate flag have outspoken biases.

The unfortunate thing about the "Stars and Bars" is that it has been taken out of context. It once symbolized southern pride and nothing to do with white supremecy. Most people don't even know the origins of the Stars and Bars and that is a sad thing. Once the meaning of it is understood then it should be restored to the state flags.
