Mississippi on Verge of Changing State Flag… Shedding the Stars and Bars

The Mississippi State flag includes the Confederate Flag, and it’s been a point of contention for years. On Saturday, the Mississippi House of Representatives voted to start the process of removing the Confederate emblem from the flag, and the governor has vowed to approve it if the legislation reaches his desk.

The Mississippi House voted 85-34 in favor of the measure, now it needs to go before the state Senate.

Governor Tate Reeves tweeted on Saturday:

  “it’s time to end it. If they send me a bill this weekend, I will sign it.”

Walmart on Tuesday said it would no longer display the flag in its stores, consistent with its decision to not sell merchandise with the Confederate flag from stores and online sites.

    hang your heads in shame, Mississippi legislators, for abandoning your heritage and cowing down to a bunch of disgruntled thugs! You are an embarrassment to the USA!

    I hope they realize that replacing the stars and bars with God Bless America will just piss off the atheists. You can please all of the people some of the time and some of the people all of the time but you will NEVER please all of the people all of the time!
