i dunno who needs to hear it (thats a lie i know exactly who you are) but "The Confederate Flag is just Southern Culture uwu" is rotten fish guts for an argument. If you know it started in the 1960s, you must know it began specifically in 1965 after the repealing of Jim Crow laws and an end to lawful segregation.

Your confederate aesthetic began in protest to the repealing of laws enforcing segregation. Its. Racism. As. An. Aesthetic.
