Pride and Pretension

Remove the confederate flag? Heritage or Hatred?

“A man passes for that he is worth.  Pretension may sit still, but cannot act.  Pretension never feigned an act of real greatness.  Pretension never wrote an Iliad, nor drove back Xerxes, nor christianized the world, nor abolished slavery. “
