Confederate flag is a symbol of racism and division We are not demanding removal of the Confederate battle flag from the Walton County courthouse with any political agenda, for the sake of political correctness, to destroy Southern history or to prevent anyone from flying the flag on private property. My wife and I are compelled to because of our own history. My grandfather was one of the few Jews who escaped Nazi Germany before the Holocaust and it would be against every grain of my body to sit on the sidelines on this issue.

Letter: The Confederate Flag should be removed I love the South. I was raised in the South. I love its barbecue. I love spending Saturdays in the Fall watching as many SEC football games as possible, and I love the new SEC Network. Most of all, I love my wife, who was raised in Germantown and Atlanta and my two children who were born here in the South. I love almost everything it represents and would not live anywhere else in the world, but I do not love it when, in the name of "heritage," we tie ourselves to a symbol that divides and hurts so many of us.
