Southern United States: What is Racist about the Confederate Flag

"The state of South Carolina was founded by gentlemen ... Nothing in the world will ever induce us to enter into a covenant with the rough, brutal rabble from the New England states." With such quotes the correspondent for the London Times described the mood in Charleston in December 1860. A convention of the state of South Carolina ruled there on the question of whether the state should remain in the United States of America or should dare to go into secession. With 169 votes to zero, the "decree" was approved on December 20, which dissolved "the currently existing union between South Carolina and other states".

The MPs in Charleston had given the signal for the secession of the southern states from the Union. Four months later, the Confederate flag was flying over the Union fortress Fort Sumter in the port of the city (which, however, looked different from the one currently being discussed). When the "Stars and Stripes" were raised there again four years later, the south was ruined, its society destroyed, and more than 650,000 people on both sides had lost their lives. More Americans lost their lives in the first all-out war of the machine age than in any war the US has fought since. And the union of individual states had become a confederation of states.
