{Video} Kids Say: The Confederate Flag is Racist!

Warning! This video is as shocking as the racism behind the Confederate Flag!

Confederate Flag supporters will reconsider their arguments over the meaning of the racist Confederate Flag after checking out this video from the team over at FCKH8.com.

A for-profit T-shirt company with an activist heart and a passion for social change, FCKH8’s mission is to arm thousands of people with pro-LGBT equality, anti-racism and anti-sexism T-shirts that act as “mini-billboards” for change.

The debate over the federal and State use of the Confederate Flag certainly presented FCKH8.com’s creative team with rich material to pull from including the classic stereotype of the typical Southern Redneck in support of the Confederate Flag. Although, with 73% of respondents reporting no to the question of “is the Confederate Flag racist?” on the website Debate.org, it’s tough to believe that this issue is limited to just the most racists of Southerners.

The Southern Poverty Law Center, SPLC, founded by Civil rights lawyers Morris Dees and Joseph Levin Jr. have been fighting hate, teaching tolerance and seeking justice since 1971. The recent passing of  Julian Bond, the first president of the SPLC, reminds us of how far we have come in the fight for civil and human rights, but the debate over the Confederate Flag makes is evident we still have very far to go.

Let’s hope this video accomplishes the task of changing some minds with it’s 5 f*cked up facts Great job FCKH8.com!
