ESPN will feature the effects of the Confederate flag on college sports on Outside the Lines Sunday morning at 9:30. One can only imagine the negative press the flag will get from this show. No doubt it will be portrayed as inherently evil.

I can understand how many African-Americans think of the flag, and I might feel the same way if I was an African-American. But for many Southern soldiers, the flag was not symbolic of slavery. It seems to me that there needs to be a sense of balance when it comes the Confederate flag, one which is sadly lacking in a politically correct nation. Where is the tolerance for those who look on the flag with a sense of pride?
