Welcome to tumblr people

What’s wrong with a rebel flag?
the confederacy was formed so that southern states could continue slavery
or did you flunk history class, you fucking hick
Well, in all actuality, the Confederacy outlawed the importation of slaves upon it’s formation and gave states individual power to outlaw slavery altogether at it’s formation as well. Robert E. Lee and Joseph Johnston, the highest ranking generals in the Confederacy were against slavery as well. And only like, 30% of families in the south had slaves anyway, so there’s also that. The Confederacy didn’t represent slavery, it represented independence from the United States.
