It’s hard to believe that this ridiculous story about a Confederate flag cake is still in the news. There are legitimate issues having to do with the public display of the Confederate flag, but this is not one of them. It looks like Winn Dixie has taken a slight financial hit as a result. Actually, I have no idea whether there is a correlation. The company pulled the cake after receiving a complaint and issued a public statement that this was an “error in judgment.”
If someone had a problem with the cake what they should have done was purchase it and eat it. In fact, interested parties could have wrapped the purchasing, eating, and digesting of the cake around all kinds of symbolism. Oh well, another wasted opportunity. Move on folks, there is nothing to see here.
