SC Haley Presser Prompts Wal-Mart, Mississippi to Reconsider Confederate Flag
In other Confederate flag rollback news, CNN reports:
Later in the day, in Mississippi, that state’s House speaker said his state’s flag similarly needs to change.
“We must always remember our past, but that does not mean we must let it define us,” Speaker of the House Philip Gunn said in a statement. “As a Christian, I believe our state’s flag has become a point of offense that needs to be removed. We need to begin having conversations about changing Mississippi’s flag.”
I’m still more or less convinced that this is a GOP ploy to silence discussions about white supremacy and gun violence, as well as to try to appeal to African American voters without doing anything of policy substance.
