Heritage Attacks-- Part 2

Here is a partial list of some items I mostly found offensive about attacks on Confederate heritage from last year: FEB. 20TH: NAACP and SCV join forces versus the KKK about park renaming. Now, this is an act of much-needed co-operation. The KKK is a huge reason why Confederate heritage is so much under attack. I do not consider this a heritage attack. //// MARCH 11TH: Old Slave Road in St. Louis may be getting a new name. Residents along the road say it offends people. Opponents say they're trying to sanitize history. Most property owners along it would like it renamed Elijah Madison Lane to recognize a foormer slave who fought in the Civil War. //// APRIL 13TH: "Conferate flag flies high over Palestine, controversy heats up." The SCV on Saturday hoisted a Confederate flag in a private ceremony at Confederate Veterans Memorial Plaza. The NAACP, however, is upset, saying it is the banner of "hatred, depression, oppression, slavery, and it's nothing but divisive. //// Then, there was all that controversy over Brad Paisley's "Accidental Racist" song. He was trying to explain why he is the way he is. //// Who Says the Civil War Is Over? --Old Secesh
