Stars and Bars Supporter Prays With Protester – But Minutes After This Is How He Looked

The increasingly strong controversy surrounding the confederate flag is a true discouragement for southerners who view the flag as a symbol of history and heritage. Unfortunately, thousands of others are hell bent on sealing the flag’s fate in history as an icon of hate and racism, regardless of the facts.

But there was a glimmer of hope for peace and understanding at a flag rally where a supporter and protestor were seen praying with one another, at least for a little while.

Cameras captured the two praying with one another, but when they left and returned later, the flag supporter’s face was bloodied and appearing to have been beaten.

Take a look for yourself:
