1. Most people are.
2. Most people don't think so, since it is virtually everywhere in America and in American politics.

Ahh, another virtue-signaling look-down-the-nose out-of-stater. Can never have enough of those!

But yeah, the flag was exactly what needed to be fixed. Mississippi is actually ahead of the game in race relations, since we had to confront it all long ago. Weird, right?

EVERYONE will want to fly it.

I have family in Mississippi with their own problems. Changing the flag makes approximately 0% difference to them. It’s a feel good moment I won’t stand in the way of, but it’s effectively meaningless.

In the court of public opinion and economic opportunities it matters/mattered. Whether you think that's relevant or not, is another matter.
