The man, who was carrying the Confederate flag and had a KKK tattoo on his arm, was wearing athletic shoes from FUBU, which stands for For Us By Us. The shoes definitely were not designed to be worn at a rally organized to counter the recent stigmatization of the stars and bars.
Journalist George Chidi encountered the unidentified man at a rally Saturday in Stone Mountain, Ga.
The equal-opportunity shoe shopper had obviously put some thought into his attire that day as he, like others, wore a red shirt to match the Confederate flag.
But the emotionally charged individual responded he saw nothing wrong with his literal walking contradiction. The brand was created more than 20 years ago by black entrepreneurs Daymond John and his three friends J.
The Neon Flag journalist identified the man as a KKK supporter, and decided to follow him and ask about his choice of footwear. He probably thought the red, black and white shoes would fit in well with his fellow Confederate flag supporters, which it did sans his unintentional political fashion statement.
