“It’s not about racism. Not one little bit,” Maybaugh said, adding that he believes the flag is a sign of free speech and, “people standing behind what they believe in.”
The Chronicle Telegram is doing an article in tomorrows paper about this page and the events that took place during fair week such as the flag run. I expressed to them that its not about racism. Everyone has the freedom to believe whatever they want. Do some view it as racist yes, but many also view the American flag as racist, slavery was legal under the American flag for 76 years, and slavery was legal under the confederate flag for 4, its wrong that the county commissioner is trying to take the rights away from people to sell the flag. Nobody has had any problem with the confederate flag being sold at the lorain county fair until south carolina made the decisions they made. Im very glad that The Chronicle Telegram is taking the time to hear our voice and our opinions on the matter. I only hope people will understand this is a free country with constitutional rights and that the confederate battle flag we fly has nothing to do with slavery or racism but a herritage that is supported by millions of Americans still today
