I've never seen this.  Are you referring to a photo or were you witness to a lynching?  Please show us some examples otherwise I count this as just another shot of disinformation on the subject.

You can do your own searching. Find the video of the Greensboro massacre. You can easily see the Klansmen proudly drive up in their car adorned with Confederate plates and minutes later kill several blacks and whites. Peruse the footage from the 60's marches in Miss. and Alabama and you see beatings, etc. by those wearing Confederate regalia.

And for those who wish to equate the US flag with the Confederate flag because the Klan uses that one too, all I know is that innumerable blacks are free because of the men that died under the US flag. Can the same be said of the stars and bars?

The point is that there are those who can't understand why it's seen as a symbol of hate. The reasons are there, and the majority of it has nothing to do with the Civil War. And a large reason is their own fault.
