In some ways it's like the N-word. Offensive to everyone but those that want to use it.

I went to college and grad school in SC and in my undergrad years many of my classmates marched on the SC Capitol in 1999 (like most of the Trinis on campus I didn't know what was going on but I quickly got the sense that the flag was offensive). I lived in Columbia for many years as well and passed by the flag waving proudly in front of the state house. I am so glad that it has been taken down and sent to a museum which, in my opinion is the only place it should be seen.  as a friend of mine so eloquently put it, "if your only claim to fame is that some long lost ancestor of yours may or may not have fought in a war (and a losing one that that) then you are really pathetic"
