Fight Over Confederate Flag Continues

The fight over the confederate flag continues across the Commonwealth.

After some questioned a Floyd County high school's rebel mascot, one team said they would not play against the school. That team did wind up playing the rebels last night and the game wound up being pretty uneventful. One group says there is still no excuse for questioning the confederate flag.

The Sons of the Confederacy say both blacks and whites fought on the rebel side and that the flag is not the symbol of slavery with which it is often associated.
