Yelawolf Stands Up For The Confederate Flag

By HHL Editors

Yelawolf has taken a stand on the Confederate Flag in the past, wearing it in a 2014 Instagram post that he eventually removed.

That was all before the Dylann Roof shooting in South Carolina, and the further examination of the controversial symbol that followed.

But, as Yelawolf just made clear in a new Facebook rant, he's still down with the stars and bars.

The Alabama native was responding to this tweet by punk rocker Lee Spielman.

Here are Yela's words:

Ain’t no way I’m letting some ones ignorance tear me from my roots .. you f*cking f*ck boys can save it with this anti Dixie SH*T !! .. You media succubus in fashion and news are taking full advantage of yourself’s business .. Not knowing at all the damage you’re creating by giving a false impression of who we are in the South .. We’re GOOD PEOPLE !!! .. We love our small towns and we love our folks .. For me and me only I’ll tell you like this … Rip DIME BAG DARRELL !! and Long live PANTERA !! .. Long live Lynyrd Skynyrd !!… Long Live Dukes of Hazard . .And mother F*CKER … The DIXIE WILL NEVER DIE !! … Do you want Me to mention my black inspirations on the Dixie side .. like Big Gipp who I saw in a full Dixie Flag outfit at Madison Square Garden in 05 ? , or Andre 3000 rocking a Dixie Flag Belt buckle in ” Sorry ms Jackson ? ” , maybe little Jhon or Pastor Troy who rocked the Dixie Flag in a protest against ignorance ? … I saw the GROWTH and the POWER !! NOT THE DEMISE !!! And here we have these f*cking yuppies from the west coast and world wide jumping on this band wagon .. Who know NOTHING ABOUT US .. Other than the movies and misrepresented news reels they see .. Lied too at school and at home .. Further deepening the injury of social perception .. With this wack ass image of a burning Dixie Flag …. F*ck that !! … Well I can tell you that a #slumerican will never support you .. We’re beyond you all .. More open and way more prepared than you are DIXIE !!! #slumerican
What do you think? Does he have a point, or is he just defending a racist symbol?
