NAACP to again push South Carolina to remove Confederate flag from statehouse





The NAACP will make a stronger push to remove the Confederate flag from the grounds of the South Carolina Statehouse, the president of the civil rights organization said Monday.

Benjamin Jealous wouldn't go into details, but said by the summer the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People would bring more publicity to its economic boycott of South Carolina. The campaign calls for blacks to not vacation in the state and spend as little money as they can within its borders.

Jealous was in South Carolina to speak at a rally by the state's NAACP chapter honoring Martin Luther King Jr.
