For white Southern music, a time of soul searching over Confederate flag

Yahoo! Music News - Sat, 06/27/2015 - 03:58

A Confederate flag is held up by a man at a rally outside the State House to get the Confederate flag removed from the grounds in ColumbiaCountry singer Cody McCarver for years wore T-shirts featuring the Confederate battle flag - the "rebel flag" as he calls it -when he toured in the U.S. South as a member of the Confederate Railroad band. It took last week's controversy over the Confederate flag following the murder of nine worshipers at an African-American church in Charleston to fully drive home to him how divisive the symbol can be. "I think that if, and this is a huge if, taking the rebel flag out of our society would stop racism, I am all for it," said McCarver, who quit as keyboard player for Confederate Railroad several years ago to pursue a solo career.
