Redneck Day?

The U.S. Department of Ed. has said it will open an investigation after a student in Arizona wore a Confederate flag to a school-sponsored "Redneck Day."

Civil rights leaders contacted department officials after a photo emerged of a student wearing a large Confederate Army battle flag as a cape during May school spirit week at Queen Creek High School. "I found it to be offensive," Civil Rights Activist Rev. Jarrett Maupin told KTVK-TV. "I think many in the community did and the department responded."
