When used in the right context, I think its fine. It is a part of history. I dont agree, though, when its use is misconstrued to be a racial issue.

For instance, if you have no general knowledge of what it stood for, but you know that now it equates to insulting another race, then you should be shot and have your organs farmed to help some other more intelligent person.

It is as much of a part of history as the stars and stripes. Whether we want to admit it or not- our ancestors fought and died under that flag. For a liberal yankee (or a southern black person) to argue that point is crazy. Don't get me wrong- I don't fly one or anything like that, but I am in South Carolina and this is where all of that fuss is over the flag. The NAACP has boycotted our state....I say good- stay out.
