The article reads in part:
"We believe flying the Confederate flag on campus may violate district rules against discrimination," Kaufman wrote in an explanation of the decision. "We believe — and have communicated with students — that the Confederate flag represents hatred, bigotry, intolerance, slavery, civil rights issues and discrimination," Kaufman wrote.

The Confederate Battle Flag is often called a "rebel" flag, for a reason. It is OUR sign of rebellion. As a black man born and raised in Georgia, I am proud of OUR southern flag. It represents OUR southern heritage. And, I resent the "northerners" that always seem to be offended by it. Yankees are still butting into our business, and telling us what we can’t do. I had family on both sides of the civil war. Slavery is only an "excuse" to complain about the flag. As many of my friends (also black) respect OUR southern flag, AND the US American flag. Both are representative of OUR country. There other options in other countries, that are much are less desirable.
