Confederate Flag Enthusiasts (Photos)

Not only am I not "racist" against these Southern blacks, I consider them my brothers and sisters, and love them much more than I could ever love a white liberal or white flag detractor.

You know, Stogie - I've never had a Confederate flag, even when I lived in Texas. I'm going to get one while I still can.

I do, however, stand when they play Dixie. Funny story: I was 17 when I moved to Houston. My first husband (a serious and brilliant Civil War expert) and I were at a club and the band started playing Dixie. Everyone stood up expect me. I was bewildered and didn't have a clue what was going on. I was probably about 19 or 20 then. I learned real fast...

Adrienne, that's a great story. My father used to see the old Confederate Veterans who met periodically in the public square, in a small town in Texas. He said when the band played "Dixie" they would whoop and holler.
