A recently uploaded video (below) shows an unidentified African-American man pulling a Confederate flag off a semitrailer in the middle of slow traffic.
The truck is reportedly owned by Tribe Transportation, Inc., which is owned by a Native American.
Tribe Executive Vice-President Matt Handte wouldn't comment on the video, but told The Grio, "Any issue like that we’d handle internally. Regardless of what happened, that’s something we’d handle internally.”
The conservative website The American Mirror took a dim view of the flag-ripper's actions: "Some people are so whipped up over the Confederate flag — and eager to silence the free speech of others — they’re willing to be run over by moving vehicles to do it."
