Tell KCUR: What Does The Confederate Flag Mean To You?


The shootings in Charleston, South Carolina, have ignited a national discussion on one of our country's most controversial remnants of the past — the Confederate flag.

Lawmakers are pushing to remove the Civil War-era battle flag from the South Carolina Statehouse, shining a light on Confederate symbols across the United States.

That includes a Confederate memorial in Kansas City.

As the national debate reveals sentiments ranging from Southern pride and historical significance to bigotry and hatred, we want to know what you see when you look at the Confederate flag.
