I went to school at some pretty diverse grade schools and learned how to communicate with people of different ethnic backgrounds. I am not racist toward anyone nor do I have feelings that dwell from historical events. If you are not nice then you are an @$$hole, not a ethinically targetted derogatory name.
Besides that, it is just a cool looking flag, disregarding any meaning which unfortunately leaves it up for controversy.
Good question. I guess it just depends how you look at it.

thanks for that explanation. i was wondering myself, being a fellow texan and living in the Deep South. The Confederate flag around here is usually the sign of a ignorant redneck. I was hoping that you werent that way for the sake of all Texans.
Go Longhorns and Gig'em Aggies!!!!!!!

There are also quite a few white Southerners who don't care for the Stars and Bars and would rather see it relegated to museums and history texts. Southern pride comes in many flavors.

For the sake of all Texans, no way in heck am I like that. If I was an ignorant redneck, my mama would have took a flyswatter to my rear.
Go Red Raiders!! We would have fun watching football together.
