The confederate flag is horrifically offensive to the virtues of democracy itself. One can not say that democracy in America is the best government in the world and seeks to secede from it and that is precisely what the southern states did. Some secessionists still exist today such as ” The Secessionist League of the South “. One can not serve under two flags, one will learn to love one and hate the other. If one wishes to secede from democracy then we know precisely where their loyalty lies. America has proven itself to be a great nation so why would anyone would want to secede from it. The hypocrisy runs deep by those who wishes to secede from democracy.
In spring 2009, a Caddo Parish, La., prosecutor struck Carl Staples from the pool of potential jurors in the capital murder trial of Felton Dejuan Dorsey.
Staples was not removed from the jury pool because he opposed the death penalty. Rather, the prosecutor dismissed Staples after he expressed reservations about serving as a juror in a building whose courtyard features a prominently displayed Confederate flag.
