The Confederacy Under Attack-- Part 6: I Guess the Civil War Still Isn't Over

Ken Burns says the Confederate flag is not about heritage but resistance to the Civil Rights Movement.

"Black lives Matter" was spray-painted on the Jefferson Davis Monument in Richmond, Va..

A baked Confederate flag cookie cake sparked controversy on Twitter.

The Boston Globe took a look at their state flag and said, "It's no Confederate flag, but our banner is still pretty awful" referring to the Massachusetts state flag which is an insult to Indians.

Fox News reports that Confederate statues have been vandalized nationwide.

There was a clash between supporters and opponents of the Confederate flag.

Jeb Bush, a possible presidential candidate calls for the flag to come down in South Carolina.  (Isn't Jeb kind of a Confederate general's name?  Maybe he should change it so it doesn't appear he supports slavery.)
