Confederate flag cake 'poor judgment'

Aug. 28, 2010 at 11:16 AM

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Aug. 28 (UPI) -- The display of a cake decorated with a Confederate flag in a Florida Winn-Dixie grocery store was in poor judgment, a spokesman says.

Displaying the flag offended some shoppers, but not everyone, WJXT-TV, Jacksonville, Fla., reported.

"To me personally, I think it's disrespectful, I know southerners got their own beliefs, white or black, but I don't like the Confederate flag at all," shopper Richard Bradley said Wednesday.

Another shopper saw it as the use of free speech.

"I feel like it's your free speech, whatever you want to do," shopper David Grimes told the TV news.

However, in a statement sent to the television station, Winn Dixie spokesman Robin Miller said: "This issue was an error in judgment and has been corrected."
