Ryan Upchurch Apology Video


Upchurch Apology


Luke Combs Apology for Upchurch Video

quote:

However, after Combs released the song in early February, promotional photos of the singer standing with a Confederate flag in the background and using a guitar with a Confederate flag-adorned sticker circulated on social media, and not for the first time. The photos are about seven or eight years old, Combs said on Wednesday, adding that he knows that doesn't justify his actions.

"I've grown a lot as a man and as a human being, and as a citizen of the world," Combs says, but nonetheless, there is "no excuse for those images," and he "apologize[s] for being associated with that."

"I am now aware how painful that image can be to someone else, and no matter what I thought at the time ... I would never want to be associated with something that brings so much hurt to someone else," he admits. "I want people to feel accepted; I want people to feel welcomed by country music and by our community ... Hate is not a part of my core values."

people that act like the confederate flag has nothing to do with racism is like people acting like the swastika has nothing to do with nazism.

They are as bad as the people who claim that the flag is solely about racism

well that was absolutely the origin of it:



The flag has long symbolized defiance, rebellion, and exclusion of non-white people. This shouldn't be news to you if you actually studied real history. The civil war was about slavery and I could post 100 quotes by the leaders at the time that expound on just that, in detail.

How long will it take for a country artist to ignore claims like this and just roll with it. I honestly think they'd be more successful with that approach.
