We can’t turn on the TV these days without talk of the Confederate flag and its demise. And it appears not even celebrities can escape talking about what it means to them.
Being a Southern Boy, it’s no surprise that Luke Bryan grew up seeing the Confederate flag on a regular basis, but he admits his view on the controversial flag have evolved over time.
“Where I grew up, I never understood the Confederate flag to be a negative thing,” Luke told Billboard. “But if the Ku Klux Klan is going to walk around and turn the Confederate flag into their deal…it’s become a symbol of racism to a majority of people. And we live in a country where we have to listen to people’s opinions and work it out.”
Let’s hope we can work it out peacefully…
