' Considering some of the grudge things Europe manages to hold onto that dates back millenia, I'm not sure I'd open that can of worms. What's that quote? "In America 100 years is a long time, in Europe 100 miles is a long way"?
And let's be honest, it's way, WAY worse. I've got elected officials in (formerly) proud union-state territory flying the confederate flag because they know their bread is buttered on the racist side. We have second-generation immigrants calling these people out and basically being shouted down/intimidated into silence.
Basically, the failure of Reconstruction should stand as a lesson to everyone; you don't let traitors go home and cling to their bitter delusions and lies.
