A video showing an African-American man running up behind a truck stuck in slow traffic and removing a Confederate battle flag from its trailer has gone viral.
The truck in the video appears to be a part of “TRIBE Transportation, Inc.,” a company ironically owned by a Native American woman.
When reached by phone, TRIBE Executive Vice-Preisdent Matt Handte declined specific comment on the video.
“Any issue like that we’d handle internally,” he said. “Regardless of what happened, that’s something we’d handle internally.”
The Confederate flag has increasingly come under scrutiny as a symbol of racial hatred. Last month, Bree Newsome was arrested after she climbed the flag pole outside the South Carolina statehouse in Columbia to remove the Confederate flag in protest.
