i read your article on lynrd skynrd. first of all i am not racist, second of all the band isn't either. you need to stop assuming things. its not fair for you to say that they are racist just because they use and appreciate a flag that represents heritage and not hatred. i have personaly watched every biography, read every book on them that i could get my hands on. belive me, they are all down to earth good people. the flag does not represent racism and it is here to stay, so deal with it. and thats coming from me not lynrd skynrd.

p.s.. lynrd skynrd does not have anything to do with the kkk so you can hang that up.  ##

JOSH: I didn't write the article, but it speaks for itself. My opinion is that the South ought to bury its inglorious past rather than celebrate its past sins and thereby not only insult itself but most of America.  --Al

hello Al! I don't think so.

You know i've got the same problems as You bout the Confederate flag. Time they bury that piece of material. if all those flag waving Confederates say they aren't racist they just love the south etc then I say it's time for them to come up with a new symbol that's not associated with racism & give their new symbol a new definition of what their new south is all about.

All Blessings Always to You Al!
