Antelope Valley Fair Removes Rainbow Flags The fair maintains it is not taking a political position on this issue. But Jacobs took the issue up with the fair's executive committee. "Do I take a stand and say 'I don't believe in this, or whatever?' We said, no," according to Jacobs. "Why don't we just take them all down right now because we've only got a couple calls. No one will know, because we're not trying to make a statement."But people did notice. Lancaster's Outreach Center said taking down the flags sends a poor message.Still, whether intended or not, this isn't the first time the Antelope Valley has faced allegations of bigotry. The US Department of Justice recently opened an investigation into civil rights allegations by police in the cities of Lancaster and Palmdale.
