Just attended the Parade in I.T., the turn out was great. One thing that caught my eye was that the Mayor of Stallings must be supporting racism because the front of her car had a Confederate
Flag. To me this is a slap in many residents face. This is not appropriate for an electicated offical.

Call it what you want but for someone in an elected position to be offending others by wearing this racest symbol is not good.

Yep the car was wearing it, but the Mayor of Stallings, an elected offical was proud enough to ride in the car, smiling and waving to the crowd as she rode in the car that wore a racist flag.

Seriously? If she rode in a car from the transformers movie would you call her an alien too? If she threw out candy would you accuse her of trying to kill your kids with sugar?

Lighten up people. It was a movie replica and it is obvious some people have a deep seated hatred for your Mayor.

This flag is hated by me and other African Americans, for the Mayor of a neighboring town to support this flag and portray herself as supporting all the citizens of her town and other union county residents, she or any other elected official should not support and wear this flag.
And yes by throwing candy the participants are putting the kids in harms way, I saw many children run directly into the path of on coming vehicles to get candy. Indian Trail needs to stop this practice before some child is hurt or killed.

Wonder what the new Stallings Police Chief and some of the Stallings Officers thinks about the Stallings Mayor flying the Confederate Flag in the Indian Trail Parade.

I also saw that and thought it was very poor judgment for an elected offical.
