The Confederate flag on South Carolina Capitol grounds in Columbia MUST come down and NOW! The Charleston Massacre at the African American Church is the last straw!
It is NOT a sign of the losses of white Southerners in the Civil War, 150 years ago, sorry!
It is a sign of racism and hatred, and NO public place anywhere in America should be allowed to display it!
Look at the Supreme Court stating in a decision the other day that Texas can ban use of the Confederate flag as a symbol on automobile license plates.
That should become the standard everywhere in America.
Of course, if a private person wishes to display the Confederate flag on his car or his private property, nothing can be done about it, but on public land and locations, it MUST be banned!
Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina claims it is part of “tradition”! Well, sorry, Lindsey Graham, NO MORE!
The Civil War is over, so get over it!
The Confederate flag will still be in museums, but it should not be permitted anywhere else in public places, clear and simple!
No symbol of hate and prejudice and racism should be legally allowed in public places in America, as this is NOT freedom of speech!
