You Know You’re a Redneck When…

…You fly a Confederate flag outside your house and you don’t even live in a true Southern state. This flag flies outside a house just south of Baltimore, in the northern part of Maryland, which is known as the Free State. Though Maryland was a slave state, it was a border state with divided sympathies during the Civil War. Most Marylanders who fought in the Civil War joined the Union (North) army. Still, you would think that with true-blue secessionist states like South Carolina finally deciding to take down Confederate flags outside government institutions and with all the nation’s recent racial strife and tensions, a Northern Maryland resident would have more sensitivity and cultural awareness than to wave this symbol of slavery and oppression.

  1. Not everyone looks at the rebel flag as purely a sign of slavery. Some people see it as southern pride. Adam you should be careful what you post and what neighborhoods you pass through, because not everyone wants to here about how you want to keep racism alive.DG
