Take Down the Flag-Now
Here are the words of those who birthed the Confederate flag:
“Our new government is founded upon exactly the opposite idea; its foundations are laid, its cornerstone rests, upon the great truth that the negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery subordination to the superior race is his natural and normal condition. This, our new government, is the first, in the history of the world, based upon this great physical, philosophical, and moral truth…”
Tweet of the day: “The confederate flag is the south’ sway of reminding us we used to own your ancestors and we still hate you.”#TakeItDown #NikkiHaley
Yes, take it down. Put it in a museum and date it 1861-2015. We would still be a country with racism and hate but maybe it would be a first step to a different United States. I hope I see this happening in my lifetime. It is time.
