The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has been considering ruling wearing a hat with the popular Libertarian symbol “Don’t Tread on Me” as racial harassment. A worker was reported for wearing a hat in the workplace by a coworker. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ruled that it did not constitute racial harassment, although it does have racial context in the past. The maker of the flag during the Revolutionary War was a slave trader and there have been other events since where the flag was associated with race crimes.
