Capture the Confederate Flag
Social Media has been abuzz this week with #noflagchallenge and #noflaggingchallenge which dare people to take down publicly displayed Confederate Flags. The trending hashtags were reputedly sparked when activist Bree Newsome of Charlotte North Carolina climbed the South Carolina Statehouse flag pole and removed the Confederate flag prior to it’s official removal by the South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley.
Since Sunday, a handful of #noflagchallenge videos have popped up showing people ripping down public displays of Confederate flags.
Here is one of shirtless man ripping some Confederate pride off the back off a pickup.
