Maybe he was diving a borrowed truck? Who knows... but just 'cuz you 'saw it once' doesn't invalidate the fact that rebel flags are offensive to most African Americans.

You're free to be offensive to anyone you want... but if you drive around certain neighborhoods with a rebel flag, don't be suprised what may happen. That's all I'm sayin'.

Yea man I know what you mean I am Mexican-American and it doesn't bother me one bit. I think its just southern people are proud of their history and want to show it. Its the paranoid ones that link the flag to the bad things but I say lettem bitch and wine thats all they can do haha

that's a neat idea, never seen the oval done up like that, usually only see the front plates.

As a black man I don't have a problem with it, IMO it's no different than me putting a California flag or plate on my truck. When I lived in Texas everyone had Texas flags on their truck.

York PA isn't exactly a major big city. But if you live there then you're a yankee, right? So where's your "southern heritage" argument for having a rebel plate?

There are plenty of rebel flags/plates on trucks all over small town/rural America. Same goes where I live, and most don't have a problem. If you can show me where I said you shouldn't have one on your truck than I'll understand why you're defensive about it.

All I said was be careful where you flaunt it. If you don't believe me, then go drive around New York or LA and the like and see what happens.

Good for you. I hope your luck holds up. But again, a yankee flaunting a rebel flag surely can't claim 'southern heritage' as an excuse. So what's the significance? What's up with the 'thumbs up' thing? Come on, you can be honest, It's ok.

Naw, it's not 'hard to explain' at all. But I understand why you don't want to.
