Russell Pipkin #racist

One of those was Russell Pipkin, 47, who lives just south of the Mason-Dixon line in Mount Airy, Maryland, between Washington and Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Pipkin, a warehouse manager, traces his roots to North Carolina and wears his Confederate heritage on his vest, his belt buckle, his earrings and a ring on his finger. On his right arm, he has tattooed the Southern Cross battle flag with the words "Crazy Rebel."

"It has nothing to do with race," he said, wearing—on top of all his accessories—a battle flag T-shirt as he waited for a mounted cavalry re-enactment to get underway. "It's more, for me, about just the way our country is headed ... Anything that's Southern is viewed as hatred. That's not right."
