Nov 16 - Luda wears confederate flag at Vibe awards.....and explains why!!!
 

 
If you didn't see the Vibe awards last night you missed Ludacris and one part of the Field mob perform the song "Georgia". While performing, Luda wore a leather jacket with a confederate flag on the front and a black hoodie with the confederate flag on that also.

Here's Ludacris' response to the Confederate Flag being worn at the VIBE Awards.


"The discussions that have been sparked after my performance of "Georgia" at the 2005 VIBE Awards is my exact reason for wearing a depiction of the Confederate Flag.
This flag represents the oppression that we as African Americans have
endured for years; this is a symbol of segregation and the racism that reigned
not only throughout the South but throughout the entire United States. I wore it to represent where we came from, to remind people that Ray Charles' original "Georgia" was written because of that racism. At the end of the performance, I removed and stomped on the flag to reveal my version of the flag; a flag comprised of black, red and green. Those are the colors of Africa. It is arepresentation and my interpretation of where we were and where we need to go.
Racism is just as prevelant now and if we are not constantly mindful of our
history and take charge of it; history is destined to repeat itself because of
ignorance. In order to move forward, we must never forget where we were.

I hope people continue to question and challenge authority, media and themselves
because questioning and challenging can only lead to enlightenment."

Its apprieciated.....I'm not too sure about how I feel about it. One one hand I didn't like it just because of what it represents to me. My people going thru struggle, torture and death. But on the other hand, it used to be the state flag right? I'm up in arms.....

alot of southern homes still have the confederate flag on their houses, both white and black.......

dont see it in miami, but when i went to Louisiana, i stopped by Alabama and seen a couple houses with the flag waiving ini the front (this was in 2000) in an all black neighborhood...

to some its still a sign of racism but to others its a sign of southern pride....

lil jon and others have had the flag in their videos.... Luda wasnt the first and wont be the last

As soon as i saw this last night, I was filled with joy because of the reason Luda was wearing it. I knew right away what he was going after and atleast in my mind, he accomplished what he set out to do.

if u let the flag oppress then it will. most black ppl down south have grown past it. most ppl in the other country who come down here and arent used 2 it get sensitive about it. i have a confederate flag, i down have it hangin outside my house but i have it in my room, it just reminds me how far we've and it inspires me to live past all the stereotypes and make somethin positive of myself.
