week 8 resource

I actually found several interesting sites and articles I wanted to share (all having to do with the confederate flag).

http://music-mix.ew.com/2011/03/09/kid-rock-naacp-protest/

This first link is to an article about Kid Rock, who is set to receive an award from the NAACP.  However, the organization is now objecting to his frequent use of the battle flag at concerts.  In the article, he claims that for him personally, the flag is a symbol of southern rock music and “just looks cool.”

This next site is the official site of the Anti-Defamation League and is a database of what they consider to be “extremist symbols, logos, and tattoos.”  The link is to their listing of the confederate flag and their evaluation of its meaning.

This last link is to the resolution passed by the Sons of Confederate Veterans against the use of the Confederate flag by hate groups.
