Ulysses,

 Thank you for you insightful comments. I guess I will never understand why people can not sperate history from abuse of history as you, others here, and myself can. I have done some research into Klan philosophy and find they change depending on the agruement they need to present, which makes it hard to judge what they really stand for except hatred.

 To me anything they use to further their racist agendas is a symbol of racism. Until we get more backbone and pass laws to stop their abuses we will always be having debates like this. I am glad to see you say that they are making it a symbol of racism instead of just because of the slavery issues. You are quite open minded and a clear thinker. I guess people like us that enjoy history will have to suffer with the abusers of history and just have lively debate.

Sincerely

Shadowrebel
