The Mississippi flag should not be flown until they remove the racist, treasonous symbol of a war fought to protect the rights of white people to buy and sell human beings.


Eff them and their flag.

Not including the flag of Mississippi doesn't promote diversity and inclusion. You know, the two buzzwords the left pushes constantly.

They don't include the flag of Mississippi; will they then keep the votes they get from Mississippi?

As long as you're in your safe space, we're good?

I actually have tried to move north. However, since I'm here and I have work, might as well make the best of it. That doesn't mean I have to like the Confederate flag.

Something else. A majority of Black Americans are southerners. I don't see them expressing any kind of love for things Confederate. In fact, most born and bred southern Blacks I've met have a disdain for the Confederate flag. They are, by birth, southerners. I don't hear any "It's my southern heritage" coming from them.

You're kidding right?
Cobb County is the only place I have pulled up next to a p/u truck with a confederate flag across the back window as I approached, to see a black guy driving.

Most do not realize, the confederate flag stood for the words and meaning of the US Constitution and the laws placed upon the government, by the people. The unconstitutional maneuvers to oppress the southern states leading up, cause the Civil War.

Good to see your racism out in the open. A few blacks owned slaves, not many. But then again hardly any whites owned slaves either.
Six percent of southern whites owned slaves and 1.4 percent of all whites in America owned slaves.
3000 blacks owned 20000 slaves

Duke University professor John Hope Franklin - in New Orleans over 3,000 free Negroes owned slaves, or 28 percent of the free Negroes in that city.

I live in the Atlanta area and I have never seen anyone fly a Confederate flag in Cobb County, much less a Black man. Never. Only times I have ever seen it os in Paulding County, Douglas County, and some of the counties further north in Georgia.And I have only seen Whites fly it from trucks.
