God Hates Flags

E-mail Print PDF

The Louisiana Supreme Court has agreed to hear a case over the Confederate flag.

Near the Caddo Parish Courthouse is a Confederate war memorial featuring statues of four soldiers and a Confederate flag. In 2009, a black man was convicted of killing a white firefighter, and now his attorneys and the ACLU are arguing that the proximity of the Confederate memorial to the courthouse could intimidate black jurors. At least one black juror was removed from the jury pool after expressing concerns about the flag.

And that juror's exclusion raises an interesting question: who thought it was a good idea to ask him about the Confederate flag in the first place?

Defenders of the memorial argue that it honors not slavery, but the courage of individual soldiers. But, they may also have another argument to rely on; the monument was erected in 1902, and could be worth preserving for its historical value. No one's saying to tear down the pyramids, and those were actually built by slaves.
