It looks as though the Hanover tomato event will now be a symbol of slavery because someone displayed a confederate flag at this years event, Many people left the event due to the confederate flag being displayed.

I think the flag carriers at least give you the heads-up as to who's who and what's what. You don't have to wonder how or what that HEART is pumpin'. I say it's best for all to let them identify themselves, especially if they're out here working in the community, I'd like to know who and/or what I'm dealing with on a day-to-day basis.

If you are unset over a flag... you DO NOT know the history of the flag. It is NOT a hate symbol. But other symbols of hate are okay by those who left the Hanover. Get over yourself and read a history book.
