People have now associated the confederate flag with slavery but that is not the case it means the rebels. The confederate flag is a part of our history at one point in time it was our nation 's flag the it evolved into what we have today.

Currently in Russia they are erecting statues of Joseph Stalin so as we are fighting to take down our history they are supporting their
Essay Revision Wendell Phillips speech was delivered during a time before equality was in existence. As people’s race played a crucial factor in society. During 1861 when the Civil War was in its beginning stages the Northerners were debating weather to allow African Americans to serve in the military. As that made sense to some since the whole point of the civil war was to abolish slavery in the South and obviously many African Americans wanted to fight for that ending goal, but others debated that using African Americans could put their army in jeopardy as they had no experience. Event though this was a conflict between abolitionist people who were strongly for abolishing slavery in the United States some Northerners were still hesitant in trusting Blacks as there was still racism.
Heritage Or Hate? Today there is a big controversy over whether people should take the confederate flag down or keep it up since people aren't sure if the confederate flag stands as a symbol of hate or just heritage. There are very good and reasonable points to both sides whether you believe it is representing hate or representing heritage. Me, well I'm kinda in the middle but after reading peoples arguments I had to pick the side of hate and to just take the flag down.

They argued that black people were incapable of caring for themselves. They said that slavery was a benevolent institution that kept them fed, clothed, and occupied.

Many people presume that Malcolm hated and threatened Caucasian Americans constantly when advocating every African American should go out and arm themselves, form militias of their own. In an interview, however he defines himself stating "No, I said this: That in areas of this country where the government has proven its--either its inability or its unwillingness to protect the lives and property of our people, then it’s only fair to expect us to do whatever is necessary to protect ourselves". He later goes on and says he respects government and laws as well as " I’m not advocating the breaking of any laws. But I say that our people will never be respected as human beings until we react as other normal, intelligent human beings do. And this country came into existence by people who were tired of tyranny and oppression and exploitation and the brutality that was being inflicted upon them by powers higher than they, and I think that it is only fair to expect us, sooner or later, to do likewise."
So they decided to banned the Confederate flag in the states of California, South Carolina, Mississippi, Virginia, Georgia, Alabama, and Some companies now everyone has their own opinion on why it was ban but I personally don’t think that they should've banned it. Some say it, they should not ban it because its's a sign of heritage not hate, some say they want to be a rebel, some say they like the way it looks, some say it's because they are proud to be a southerner. But my reason is because I like the way it looks and because it a flag that interest me and in today's society I think it just represents southern pride it a way of showing it.
“Buchanan, a Democrat who was morally opposed to slavery but believed it was protected by the U.S. Constitution, was elected”( Source #5)This quote explains how another president had the same mindset of Abraham but still couldn't officially end slavery. ”Taylor entered the White House at a time when the issue of slavery and its extension into the new western territories (including Texas) had caused a major rift between the North and South”(Source #7). This quote quote explains how other presidents made slavery worst. Although having different ideas than other presidents Abrahams’ assassination was unjustified because other American presidents did not make much changes or just made it worst. While Abraham Lincoln made on of the most important decisions by freeing the slaves.
Reconstruction was a difficult time after the Civil War. Readmitting the former confederate states to the Union is call Reconstruction(History Book). Reconstruction was supposed to bring the North and South together, but that didn't happen because of southerners. Many reasons contribute to the failure of Reconstruction.

“The Lincoln-Douglas Debates were a defining event in American Politics”(Goldfield,389). Lincoln was a prominent lawyer in the years prior to being elected president and returned after his presidency. Lincoln represented blacks in courts where he fought for their rights to remain free, but also during the 1830s and 1840s represented slave owners. He occasionally expressed views that it was wrong to own humans, but as politician during that time, he knew he couldn’t run on a position that emphasized slavery(Black). He even said it to be a minor issue for him prior to 1854.
Jai Khurana D-Block Close-Up Codd Reverence or Remembrance? The protests in Charlottesville over the statue of Confederate general Robert E. Lee reignited the fight between white supremacists who supported the monument and liberal people who wanted the statues to be taken down.

There are other abolitionist elements included in Walker’s appeal, especially in his stance against the popular colonizing plan that would have the entire African American population boarded onto ships and sent to Africa. Walker is vehemently against any such plan, no matter how the idea is pitched since “this country is as much ours as it is the whites, whether they will admit it now or not.” He immediately picks out one of the more obvious fallacies with the colonization plan to hone in on: that the people on that ship will not have been directly from Africa, rather they were born and raised in the United States. Walker is staking a claim and ownership in the country, something that as he mentions, is not a popular, or common, view. This
