During a Monday morning protest in Jacksonville, Florida, a Black Confederate flag supporter was harassed by members of the KKK as the man paid respect to a confederate monument.
H.K. Edgerton is a 68-year-old Black man from Asheville, North Carolina. As he paid his respects at the Hemming Park Confederate Monument, he was confronted by members of the KKK.
Edgerton, the former president of the NAACP chapter in Asheville and current member of the Southern Legal Resource Center, told them he did not know why they confronted him in the first place.
First Coast News reported that Edgerton does not believe the flag represents racism in the south or the country.
