White Family in N.C. With Confederate Flag Flying from SUV Shot At by Group of Angry Locals

Now whites who dare to have a Confederate flag flying from their vehicle are being shot at, at least in North Carolina, anyway. A white family was fired at perhaps as many as six times by a group of black men who attacked as the family drove by flying their banner in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The white family from Gaston County, NC, was badly frightened after their car took bullets last Saturday.

On Monday, a father of two who, for obvious reasons, wished to remain anonymous told his shocking story on Charlotte’s ABC affiliate, WSOC TV, insisting that his truck was targeted last Saturday by a group of black men upset over the Confederate flag he was flying from the back of the vehicle.

The ABC reporter said that up to six shots were fired at the truck, with two hitting the vehicle and another going through the window of a nearby home where a young African American woman lives.

One bullet slammed through the driver’s side door of the family’s SUV, lodging itself underneath the seat where the man’s fiancé was sitting. Another bullet burrowed into the windshield frame only inches from his head.

Bullets from the group of black men also slammed into the nearby home of a young black woman named Jasmine Ford. The bullet went through her bedroom window and lodged into her bedroom wall.

“I could have been shot,” Ford told the TV news crew.

All this over a flag from 150 years ago!

Good thing Obama came to ease race relations in America, isn’t it?
