Kid Rock is known for flying the Confederate flag as he sings his southern rock, but with a move on in South Carolina to take it down outside the Capitol after the church shootings, should people be flying it while tailgating in the Xfinity Theatre's parking lot before his concert?
The choice of Kid Rock as the opening act for a new sports arena in mostly black Detroit has injected the musician into the national debate over race and culture because of his embrace of the Confederate flag, an expletive-laced criticism of NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick and unabashed support for President Donald Trump.
Kid Rock, whose real name is Robert James Ritchie, said at the time that he “never flew that flag with any hate in my heart.” “Everybody knows where I stand and what I’m about,” he told the Free Press. “It’s not about hatred or being a racist. I like Southern rock music, and a lot of people died under that flag for beliefs they had, right or wrong. But it stands for rebel, and my love of Southern rock.”
Even as South Carolina and major retailers officially disconnect themselves from the Confederate flag, the controversial symbol continues to have a prominent presence at Kid Rock's concerts. On Monday, the National Action Network's Michigan chapter protested outside the Detroit Historical Museum, which houses a Kid Rock exhibit, demanding that the rocker stop displaying the Confederate flag. In a statement to Fox News' Megyn Kelly, Kid Rock relayed his message to those upset in his native Detroit: "Please tell the people who are protesting to kiss my a.. and Ask me some questions." Although Kid Rock was born and raised in Michigan, a Union state during the Civil War, the rocker has adopted the Confederate flag in recent years to highlight his Rebel Soul, the name of his 2012 album. http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/kid-rock-tells-protestors-to-kiss-my-ass-over-confederate-flag-20150710 http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by Wochit using http://wochit.com

Images of students earing confederate flags are lighting up social media, leaving some demanding the school district do something about it.
The Confederate flag is no longer flying over Fort Sumter, South Carolina, where Southerners fired the first shots of the Civil War. Legislators may be ready to do the same at the statehouse, where one person faces charges after supporters and opponents of the revel flag slugged it out Monday. Every day the flag continues to fly, emotions on both sides of the issue run higher. Michelle Miller reports from Emanuel AME Church in Charleston.
