It was originally the flag of the south during the civil war. (duh) The largest cause of said war being slavery. After that, racist groups like the kkk and the like would use the flag when they mobbed. Burning, hanging yadda yadda. Over time it began having a huge racist connotation to it that it did not have at first, or at least not as much.
Thats why at least, not that I agree with what their doing.

>largest cause of the war was slavery
m8 the largest cause of the war was States' rights. Slavery was there, but didn't become a huge focus, thus turning the Civil War into a moral war as well, until the Emancipation Proclamation. Why on Earth would Lincoln also want to alienate the middle states, many of which owned slaves, so early in the war when he was so desperately trying to preserve the Union?

Biggest cause of the war was undoubtedly slavery. Every other opinion is frankly ignorant. The fight over states rights was a fight over slavery under a different name. It's the label people used then to avoid puzzling off the middle states and it's the label people use now to down play the racism in history.

>every other opinion is ignorant
roflmao ez ad hominem and flippant dismissal of potential opposition
>biggest cause of the war was undoubtedly slavery
m8 the reason the whole damn war even start was because the South attempted to utilize its believed right to secede from the Union. Note how the war was named the "Civil War," not the "War over Slavery."
>downplay racism in history
>implying that only the South was racist
Both sides were incredibly racist you fool. How the South was racist is extremely apparent. But the North wasn't all buddy-buddy let's-all-hold-hands-together either. They often referred to runaway slaves as "Contraband," thus explicitly referring to slaves as cargo/items/material goods instead of human beings. There also was the issue of slaves being exploited to garner sympathy from the populace for the Northern cause.
