Obama greeted with Confederate flags lining streets — organized by black man!

Southern pride was alive and well when President Obama rolled into Oklahoma City, Okla., on Wednesday.

A group of citizens, led by African American, Andrew Duncomb who calls himself “the Black Rebel” organized a show of support for the Confederate flag.

“We don’t believe it’s a symbol of racism,” Duncomb told KFOR News.

“They’re blaming the racist problems on the flag and not on the real problems of America. Through the race lies the people who carry and harbor the hate inside,” Duncomb said.

Duncomb and several supporters told KFOR that the Confederate flag is about heritage, not hate.

“Hell, I’m just out here supporting my flag, not racists, I don’t want no problems with anybody,” a supporter said.

Trucks, flags and people – both black and white – lined the streets as the Obama brigade made its way to a downtown hotel.

“Again, look at these people, they all followed the black guy out here. Do you think that any of them are racists?” Duncomb said.

There was mixed reaction to the protest on Twitter:

No one’s rioting, looting, or fighting. In fact, everyone seems to to be having a good time and getting along. So yeah, stay classy middle America!
