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.

I'm in an interracial marriage and don't understand the problem. If you hate American history, there's over 200 other countries to move to. Russia sympathizes with hatred towards America and the language isn't too hard to pick up. Изучайте русский язык.
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.
Bogrbon, again you make a comment that one wishes they could like multiple times. Yes, the Confederate flag is to America as the Nazi flag is to Germany. A symbol of segregation, hatred towards a group of people based on their birth status, and commemorative of traitorism towards the country. Confederates literally fought AGAINST Americans and FOR white supremacy. What's unclear about this?
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.
