More Heritage Attacks

It sure will be nice if some people ever learn to respect the heritage of others.  I understand why they don't like Confederate heritage, with the slavery issue.  Just like I have to ignore the lyrics and language of certain groups.  You're not going to change what happened.

And to equate the Confederacy with Nazi concentration camps is completely ridiculous.

Recent attacks:

11-30-12:  Country singer Trace Adkins was criticized for wearing an ear piece with the Confederate flag on it at the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting ceremony.  He correctly responded that it represents his Southern heritage and said he is descended from Confederate soldiers and said he did not "intend any offense by wearing it."

12-212: Dixie State College in St. George, Utah, got its name after Mormons from the South tried to grow cotton in the area back in the 1800s.  But, there are some who argue the name Dixie is too closely connected to slavery.  They want the school renamed. 

A Confederate soldier statue stands on the campus and the school recently retired its mascot, a Rebel.
