Support The Confederate Battle Flag shared a link.
The creator of a Christmas parade float incorporating Confederate flags says he's been asked to drop the flag for the next parade - and will do so.
Glen James has participated in numerous parades in the Nelson and Richmond area, he said, and on Saturday he took part in the Richmond Parade with a float called "Rednek Xmas".
The float consisted of two large red Dodge Ram trucks decorated with Confederate Battle Flags, with participants wearing redneck-inspired clothing and using alcohol containers as props.
Tasman District Mayor Richard Kempthorne told Stuff the use of alcohol in a parade float aimed at families was inappropriate, as was the use of the flag which many find divisive.
I didn't understand at first, why this guy knuckled under so easily but then I realized this parade was taking place in New Zealand. I understood even better when I read the description of the Confederate Flag as told to them....(see below)….If this is how the flag is described all over the world, no wonder people are so against it
