I live in Tennessee in an upper middle class neighborhood and some of my neighbors now have Trump signs and confederate flags in their yards. Literally every house with a Trump sign has a confederate flag. I am blown away. They are no longer ashamed of their racism. They wear it like a badge of honor. Nothing good can come from empowering the crazies and that is what Trump is doing for this own selfish gain. I now feel uneasy in my own neighborhood.

How can this be called “Making America Great Again?” The confederate flag is a symbol of racism, but worse, it is a representation of treason.
Yes, treason, committed over 150 years ago, and its memory kept alive.
These are not good developments. This is not progress. The Republican Party is destroying America from the inside out.
