As its “Rebel Flag” moniker indicated, it universally symbolized, until fairly recently, rebellion, not racism.
The Dukes of Hazzard, starring an automobile called the General Lee sporting the battle flag on its roof, played on CBS as a top-ten rated show in the early 1980s
Well, in the mid-2010's, the sight of the General Lee is now verboten on TV or at the very least on TV Land. The network which specializes in airing old TV shows has done so in the wake of the backlash against the Confederate flag following last month's massacre of Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC.
