While this is a really nice statement, you are too kind. I can go on, but I think I realize where you are coming from.
Sorta related to the flag business at hand, on Memorial Day many of the cemeteries around the area put flags out on vets graves. The City of Lubbock Cemetery has a number of Civil War vets graves, I do apologize for not knowing the number but it's in the the area of about 60 or so from the CSA and I do know there are 4 from the Union Army. I have some pics somewhere, taken maybe 30 years ago where the flags of the vets' armies were displayed. It was kinda neat in a way, with a mixture out there. Of course, the battle flag was used for the CSA, but they found appropriate flags of the era for the Union soldiers, and even went so far as having the right flags for vets of WW1 and WW2. Someone went to a lot of trouble to get it right. I saw this as a unique way to commemorate, but modern naysayers put it all down and it doesn't happen any more.
This is not racist in my opinion, just history.
