I agree with Ms. Ronique Nicole that the intent was to offend, however I disagree that the flag could be compared to the swastika. An estimated 600,000 (both sides) was killed with the confederate flag which pales in comparison to the estimated 50 - 70 million people was killed for the swastika. Also with the start of the civil war containing several factors which only slavery was a small part of and it not being until the republican party lead by President Lincoln signing the Emancipation Proclamation making the goal of the war to end slavery in the south.
