Letter to the House in SC

Editor's note: Letter I sent to every House member of the SC State Legislature before they begin debate on the flying of the Confederate Flag tomorrow.

Dear Honorable Members of the House:

When this flag goes, the
Yanks will have finally
erased the South from
I am an outsider to your state so my words will probably mean little to you as you debate the flying of the Confederate Flag.  Suffice it to say that I have close ties to the South from my Mom's side of the family in NC.  I was always taught the Confederate Flag, the Rebel Flag as my relatives referred to it, stood as a symbol and a reminder to the powers in DC that they are there to serve the states, not to rule them.

It is with a sad heart that 150 years after the Civil War ended, the powers that be in DC, with the help of national organizations and national/international companies, have finally brought the South to its knees and can finally rule instead of serve.

I urge you to stand in defiance and at the very least, let the people of SC decide what they want to do with their flag on their state capitol. 

If you are interested in my views that prompted me to write you personally, you can read my short op-ed here: The Cultural Cleansing
