A Redditor reposted a video showing a better angle of the flag which seems to be a standard American flag in the security camera footage. However, it's a cross between a Confederate flag and an American flag.

After the child stood his ground in telling the man that his flag has a racist connotation, fellow Reddit commentators saluted him for schooling the grown-up.
“I f****** love that little dude. He was holding it down," said one commenter.
Someone also pointed out that the man seemed to upload the video like he was proud of himself for "schooling" a child.
"And then uploaded it himself like he won? I'd burn whatever hard drive this s*** was on," they said.
Another commenter has high hopes that the child will have a bright future, saying, "That kid’ss going places."
All in all, it's tough to be right when arguing with someone younger than you – especially when what you're defending is a history of the Confederacy in America.
