Mississippi House starts process to change state’s flag

Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves said Saturday that he would sign a bill to remove the Confederate emblem from the state’s flag if the legislation makes it to his desk. ’The argument over the 1894 flag has become as divisive as the flag itself and it’s time to end it’, Reeves said in a post. Lawmakers have been drafting legislation to remove the emblem from the flag’s upper-left corner.

How foolish to do this after voters recently rejected changing the flag. If you want to hold a new referendum then fine but changing it against the will of the majority of Mississippi voters is undemocratic. Edit: The USA Today article says voters would get to approve or reject any new flag design so that is fine then.

As someone who is stationed in Mississippi, I can’t explain how much the removal of that part of the flag would improve this state. So many opportunities are forfeited due to the use of that flag. Mississippi is broke with absolutely no career opportunities and seems to be trapped in the 1950s. Citizens want change and have been finally finding the courage to express that. Older Mississippians resist change, younger, first time voters — not so much. The future could be bright for this state.
