Some of these folks make you shake your head in both awe and disgust. A country music singer by the name of Trace Adkins blew up the Twitter-verse by wearing a confederate flag as his earpiece on national television. The fashion statement was made during the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting, and has led to charges of racism against the singer and the network that gave him a platform.
The 50-year old singer made sure people could see it as he sang “The Christmas Song” during the show. Some consider the flag to be a sign of southern pride. Others connect it to the holocaust of slavery, which caused immeasurable pain and trauma to millions of black people.
