Re: “Giant Confederate Flag to Welcome Visitors to Richmond

What happened to the massive attack on displaying foreign flags. Remember the little Italian Restaurant by VCU that was picketed because it displayed an Italian and American flag, the French Film Festival flags. The confederate flag is a symbol of everything that is against what the U.S. says we want to be, a country where all men (and women) are created equal. Why did this group get permission to fly this flag? If it offends so many people of all races, beliefs, etc. why is it being flown? What about the welfare of the common good? It is not the only place in Virginia where the flag is flown. I was going to volunteer in Powhatan one evening, it was dark and, less than a quarter mile from the courthouse, there was a lighted field with a huge confederate flag flying. I was horrified. I never went back there to volunteer again, never put another penny into their economy, and never steered anyone there for any reason at all. Just one person and I made a very little difference, but imagine if everyone who believed flying a confederate flag was wrong put their money where their mouth was. We could make a change and show the world that Richmond is a city that is moving forward for everyone.
