The KKK does not own the confederate flag. People are controlled by their ignorance and the news is a huge source of misinformation and bias and especially ignorance. Because the media is ignorant, the people are too. The confederate flag has been under a lot of scrutiny because people think it stands for racism, but KKK advocated wield the American flag in their marches. The KKK is not associated with the Confederate flag.
- The Confederate flag is not a symbol of the Klan. There was a KKK march in Washington, D.C., in 1925 where you only saw American flags held by all the “hoods.” They were about eight wide and many blocks long. There wasn’t a Confederate flag in the bunch.
- The charter of the SCV clearly explains that we have no relation to, nor will we accept members in relation to organizations of hate and prejudice. We have camps in 48 states and in three other countries. We accept any descendants of Confederate veterans — white, black, red, Jew and all. There were free men of all races in the Confederacy.
- If you want things discussed in a civil manner, find and ask a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans. We’re open to discussions. If you want the truths on the Civil War, ask.
