Confederate flag flap does what Sheriff Roscoe P. Coltrane couldn't: stop the 'Dukes of Hazzard'
Former U.S. Rep. Ben Jones, a Democrat who played Cooter Davenport on the show, is the principal objector. "That flag on top of the General Lee made a statement that the values of the rural south were the values of courage and family and good times," he wrote on Facebook. The co-star of the show, John Schneider, told The Hollywood Reporter, "I take exception to those who say that the flag on the General Lee should always be considered a symbol of racism. Is the flag used as such in other applications? Yes, but certainly not on the Dukes."
