Confederate flag supporter asked about his FUBU sneakers, hilarity ensues
A man with a Ku Klux Klan tattoo attended a rally in support of the Confederate flag while wearing FUBU shoes, and when this was pointed out to him, he didn’t see the irony.
“I just wanted to mention, I didn’t know if you were aware, I know you came here with the Ku Klux Klan or whatever,” George Chidi of Neon Flag began, only to be interrupted by the man who explained that he was there as a “southern American.”
“The only thing that I wanted to mention is that the shoes that you’re wearing,” Chidi continued.
“What’s the matter with the shoes I’m wearing?” the man asked. “They’re red and black and white.”
“The brand FUBU, it stands for ‘For us, by us,’” Chidi said, then explained that the company had been founded to empower the black community.
“Them shoes that you probably wore was designed by a white man back in the 1920s,” the man shot back. “But does that make you stop wearing them shoes because the white man designed them? I don’t care if a black man designed my shoes.”
The man continued to say that he didn’t hate Chidi but instead hated “what your people are doing to this country.”
