The next day in the same small town, a hotel took down the US flag and raised a Confederate flag in its place. Why? Not because he's black, but because the owners think that Obama is Marxist and an insult to the founding fathers. Incidentally, the Faubus Hotel was once owned by a notorious governor that tried to keep Little Rock schools segregated. Now, a City Council member says that the town is already known as a "backwoodsy and redneck type community" and the raising of the Confederate flag only hurts its reputation more.
I'm glad I don't live in Huntsville. Too much drama for me.
