Alert[edit | edit source]

Mississippi to vote on striping the Confederate flag emblem from the state flag.

The motives are:

Some hate the Confederacy for challenging the unity of America.
Some hate it because it is White supremacist, as was the Confederacy.
Some hate it because the Confederates were slave owners.
Many hate it because it is connected to a sinister Confederate past and the American Civil War, both of which they wish to forget.

Update[edit | edit source]

They did vote for its removal on 29\06\2020.
