I WILL NOT Take My Confederate Flag DOWN!!!
- davidw, CNN iReport producer
My college has forced me to take down my Confederate flag because they say that I was violating a "Racism Code". The flag has been up for the last two months and there were no problems about it, but now they want to say that I am violating a code. They cannot do this to me. This is a public college and I have my right to freedom of speech. The Sons of Confederate Veterans are on my side and I have an attorney. If the housing department does not allow me to put my flag back up after they receive the letter, a huge lawsuit will take place because the housing department is violating my right to freedom of speech. I'm Black, not African-American and I don't see the Confederate flag as a racist symbol!!!
