Letter to the Editor | Upchurch isn't a racist performer

I wanted to respond to the gentleman who said having Upchurch perform in the area is a bad idea.

The guy isn't racist, as it seemed was being insinuated. I know his shows feature a Confederate flag, but that's just his way of saying he is proud of being from the South.

Lynyrd Skynyrd always had one, and they aren't racist either.

Seckond Chaynce, a hip-hop/country singer is going to be there, and it should be a really good time.

I realize that the Confederate flag is used by some idiot groups that do try to spread hate, like the Klan and Nazis, and they need to be ridden off this earth.

Rest assured, Upchurch and Co. are not about that kinda stuff.
