A home in Lindale, Ohio, is under scrutiny this week after neighbors complained about an odd display that many feel is racist. But it’s the residents’ response that’s shaking heads; they can’t seem to answer basic questions about the confederate flag they’re proudly displaying.
Fox19 Cincinnati recently spoke with Louis Jones Jr. and his friend Tammy about their odd porch display, which caught the eye of new neighbors in their town. The Jones’s house featured several black mannequins and dolls, one eating a watermelon, among multiple confederate flags.
When the Fox19 reporter pressed the friends on why they featured the display, specifically the confederate flag, they said it was a point of pride. “It’s not racist, it’s for the war that we won, you know.”
