Cincinnati Says No To The Duke Boys

You know, I'm not sure what to make of this. My opposition to the ideas that the Confederacy stood for are clear, as well as my general distaste for the Confederate flag. I would rather the flag not be on state houses, as it makes a clear political statement ( I agreed with the campaign to have it taken down in South Carolina). However, I have learned to tolerate when used as a general symbol for Southern pride. I have no problem acknowledging the average person with the Confederate flag on their shirt probably isn't a racist. I'm not a fan, but I can tolerate it. Keeping that mind, I find this to be a bit of an overreaction.

I mean, it's the Dukes of Hazzard, for God's sake.
