Byron Thomas, an 18-year-old freshman at University of South Carolina at Beaufort, has caused much discussion around campus -- and the country -- after he hung a Confederate flag in his dorm room window. The flag have long been considered to be racist symbol, but, although racists have waved the flag, it's a symbol of southern heritage and represents freedom, states rights, individual responsibility, and resistance to an out of control federal government. Anywho, after students complained, the housing staff told Byron and his roommates (who're white, by the way) to take the flag down, but the university lawyers informed Byron it's his First Amendment right to display the flag and back up it went. His parents are not happy with his decision, however.
