Meaning And Origin Of “Keep It Flying Confederate Flag Shirt”
The Confederate flag was the symbol of the southern states of the United States during the civil war against the northern federal government (1861-1865). The South – North War ended when the Confederacy surrendered in 1865 and the US government completely banned slavery.
The Confederate flag is widely seen as a symbol of racism and slavery in the United States. However, many Southerners claim the flag represents the culture, history, and heritage of this region.
The Charleston massacre comes at a time of heightened ethnic tension in the United States after a series of white police shootings of black people. As a result, the wave of protests against the Confederate flag erupted strongly.
Former US secretary of state Hillary Clinton, the 2016 presidential candidate, also asserted that the Confederate flag is “a symbol that reflects our country’s racist past”, so it should not appear in any place. According to the New York Times, before retailers announced that they would stop selling Confederate flags, sales of this item and its accompanying products such as shirts and hats with the Confederate flag on them suddenly skyrocketed in the South.
Recently, “Keep It Flying Confederate Flag Shirt” became one of the hottest topics on social media when a man wore it at the NRA conference when a reporter asked a guy in a confederate flag shirt if he was pro or anti-slavery, he said “No comment”! What do you think the shirt with the “Confederate Flag” logo and the quote “Keep It Flying” here means?
