    This iReport is in reference to the iReport by GoGreen58 a black student who is flying the Confederate flag. He was told to remove it. He is adamant that he won’t. Many of the responses to his iReport has been negative. I think that gives too much power to the symbol. Until we learn that we are the ones that make particular symbols powerful and that sometimes or most times ignoring them is a lot more effective in mitigating racism or prejudice than creating a big hoopla over them as said hoopla tends to work on the most primordial parts of our psyche.
