A Mississippi man is fired from his job after his election attire goes viral. 

He wore a shirt that said "Mississippi Justice" with a confederate flag and a noose to the voting polls. Many called the two symbols racist. 

The man's neighbor says he doesn't kow him too well, but doesn't think he is racist. 

"I can't say it's appropriate for him to wear it where he did," the neighbor said. "He's nice as far as I have seen. He came out and helped me do some stuff."

The man worked at a Mississippi hospital, which fired him for this act. The hospital released a statement saying they hold employees to a high standard, and this behavior was unacceptable.
