Subtle

Today, my mother-in-law, who isn't southern, who’s family isn’t southern, and has never even mentioned any interest in anything even remotely southern, decided to give us a baby gift: a hand-crocheted confederate flag blanket. We’re an interracial couple. I think she’s trying to tell me something. FML

Yeah, speaking as someone in an interracial marriage: set that piece of shit on fire, and either record it and send it to your monster in law or do it in her driveway.

Umm I hope your SO told her to stick that blanket where the sun don't shine, seriously that is blatant microaggression racism, you should cut her out of the child's life and if it were me I'd expose that bitch to the whole world

It's about the symbolism. I'm thinking that OP and their spouse aren't Historians and therefore aren't collecting historical artifacts. OP is upset because the Confederate flag is a very blatant, physical symbol of racism and therefore not something they want in their home or around their child.

The confederacy has a nice history of hating America too. It's certainly not a patriotic symbol to celebrate the people who took arms against their government in the defense of slavery and white superiority, at the mere idea that slavery could be outlawed. The confederate flag is basically equivalent to the Nazi German flag. Yes both are historical, they were used to represent some pretty hateful causes, hundreds of thousands died under that symbolism, and any decent person today should recognize that they belong in the dustbin of history.

I am living in Germany. 30 years ago, when I was a very young, I had a boyfriend with a confederate flag in his car. I found it very cool, America, whooho. Now, as I know the background, I am kind of ashamed. Cannot imagine that a grown up american does not know what this flag means.
