    BE ADVISED: The use of "thinking out of the box" and the employ of genius worthy of a "philosopher king" is both helpful and advised.
    NOTE: Your teachers will introduce this assignment to you as we begin to study the Reconstruction Era, and it will not be due until the end of the unit, so keep in mind what you will need ultimately to produce here as you listen to Mr. Geib's and Mr. Barich's lectures and read the textbook.

    “Anyways, I don’t see the Confederate Flag as a racist symbol, but it does represent allegiance to a country that was an enemy to the USA. “

    "RACIAL SUPERIORITY"? OR "PRIDE IN HERITAGE"?
    While a freshman in 2008 at Foothill Technology High School in Ventura, California, Dylan M. wore a baseball cap with a Confederate flag to school. One student complained of this to Assistant Principal Jennifer Duston, and she called Dylan in and told him the hat with the flag was a symbol of "racial superiority" and wearing it violated the rules of the school. She suspended Dylan. Dylan, whose family comes from the South, took offense. He did not see it as a symbol of racial superiority but pride in his family heritage in the south. He was angry. Was the school right in suspending him? Or not?
    "dkdasf"“No one likes the one idiot from Croatia wearing a Croatian flag on the 4th of July, just as no one likes the loud Southern guy parading a Confederate flag around on his person or automobile. “
    “I see the flag as a symbol of what the South was fighting for at that time, and that was the oppression of blacks. Finally, where I live at least, the Confederate flag is almost universally regarded as a symbol of racial bigotry and white supremacy, not a testament to the valor and pride of the Southern cause.”
    “The display of the Confederate flag, in my experience of seeing it, is not a symbol of race hatred or white supremacy, but rather pride in one’s family history and the attempt of connection with their region.”
    “Just as the swastika has become a symbol for white power, anti-Semitism, and Nazi ideals after World War Two, the Confederate flag has become a symbol for slavery, oppression, and white power after the Civil War. “
    “It is up to interpretation by the meaning behind the person holding up the flag. That flag is all about interpretation. “
    “It seems like people only broadcast that flag if they want to generate a controversial reaction, announce their racism, or are under the false impression that toting around such an icon somehow honors their ancestors.”
    “The Confederate flag can be remembered as the flag of an enemy that caused great pain to this country and had to be defeated. “
    “This confederate flag was a way to show that the south still lives and has not lost its heritage or ancestors.”
    “I don’t think there is one correct translation of the flag; you have no idea what the story behind the flag could mean to an individual.”
    “People who embrace the confederate flag in my opinion are ignorant about how much damage the south inflicted on other cultures and races.”
    “There’s no culture behind that flag, only racism.”
    “Anyways, I don’t see the Confederate Flag as a racist symbol, but it does represent allegiance to a country that was an enemy to the USA. “
