Is SCV Racist? PDF Print E-mail

Is the SCV a racist organization? Absolutely not! Because SCV symbols, including the Confederate battle flag, have been abused by hate groups and many members of the public do not understand the historical role of the SCV, some falsely assume that any link to the flag implies an endorsement of racism.

 

This belief is completely false. The SCV strongly condemns racism and abuse of any Confederate symbol, and has taken what action it can to prevent hate groups from abusing its symbols. In fact, the national organization adopted a statement in 1992 renouncing “the KKK and all others who promote hate among our people and dishonor our Confederate flag and emblems” to counter these misunderstandings about the organization and affirm its opposition to racism.
