If you feel as strongly about your Native American heritage as that, then I suppose you'd want to also not have state capitol building, to start out with. Or a state that it represents.

This is not a tit-for-tat issue, nor is it an uncomplicated issue. I think it is a bit of a cop out to simply say it's the people that carry the hate, IMO. It's as much of an insult for Southerners who support the SC flag issue to say we want to keep it because of what it means to our heritage (whatever that is--last time I looked we were all one country and had been again for about 150 years) and anyone else be damned, as it is an insult for the Federal government to say we took that land of yours because well we needed it, and just wanted it, and the Native Americans who had lived on it for thousands of years be damned. Not a simple resolution to the fallout from either one.
