Southern Heritage <br>News and Views: AMERICA'S DISREGARD FOR SOUTHERN RIGHTS

Friday, May 30, 2014

AMERICA'S DISREGARD FOR SOUTHERN RIGHTS


"Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness" are three rights given by our Creator and protected by government. They seemingly have lost their meaning or been amended until almost every ethnic, political, and social group claims exclusive ownership.
   
Americans of Southern ancestry are commonly treated as if they should be ashamed of their heritage and that rights extend to them only within the boundary of political correctness.  Our museums are not supplemented by taxes, our history has vanished from textbooks, our anthems cannot be sung nor our flags flown. No other culture must exist within these restraints of unwritten "law." Civil rights and equality are constantly championed but promoters do not mean one syllable of their words.  Southerners seem mandated to yield our sacred birthright while others get a free pass. In today's America, any mention of the Confederacy is dishonored, rejected, slandered, restricted, and turned into a tourist side show.
   
Such inequality is rampant and you may think that is right. You may freely you lie about racism, sling snide remarks that you deem to be clever or contemplate legislation making allegiance to Southern heritage a crime. Perhaps you are gullible enough to think I care about the names you call me or criticism you send but you are just not worth me being offended. God helping me, I will not deviate from the stand I take, the values I emulate or the beliefs I hold.  Today ignorance holds full sway but time's pendulum swings both ways. Deo Vindice.

Thank you for writing such an insightful column. I am from Texas; an American of Hispanic decent. I can trace my roots back to a soldier in Ragsdale's battalion Texas cavalry. I am proud of my Southern heritage and my connection to Confederacy. Sadly, in today's world, I am often confronted by those who would disparage the memory of our fallen Confederate Heroes. Furthermore, because I am Hispanic, I am viewed as a "traitor" to "my people". Ironically, those who would criticize me are often not American Citizens. I am a proud American Southern Conservative with roots to a brave Confederate Soldier. No other qualifier needed.

Jesse, I am from Texas, one side of my family has been in Matamoros since before the USA became a country. Just keep telling it like it really is....don't be ashamed of any part of your heritage ever. Heck, some people try to tell me my people were on the wrong side at the Alamo. The individual's honor and courage in any war, anytime is deserving of respect. Be proud.
