Mississippi keeps its symbol of hate for nowBreaking News
tags: Confederate flag, Confederate Memorials
This past Tuesday was the deadline for the Mississippi state legislature to decide what it was going to do with its state flag. To be exact, it was the deadline to decide on numerous bills that altered the original design in some ways or adopted a completely new design, instead of the symbol of the Confederacy that is Mississippi’s state flag. Since no agreement was reached on any of the bills, the flag stays as is for now.
Last week, one of the proposed solutions to the “flag flap” was for the state to have two flags. One would have the symbol of the Confederacy and the other would have the state tree, a Magnolia. Mississippi House of Representatives Speaker Pro Tempore Greg Snowden proposed that the two flags have “equal status.”
”Separate but equal.” Hmmm … Guess Rep. Snowden missed the memo on that.
