The ‘Heritage’ Of The Confederate Flag Is HATE
The nauseating insult on top of the catastrophic injury wrought by the racist terror attack that killed nine black parishioners in Charleston has been the continued presence of the Confederate flag flying on South Carolina’s statehouse grounds. Even as they tearfully mourn the tragic victims of that mass shootings, South Carolina Republicans like Senator Lindsey Graham and Governor Nikki Haley have shown no sign of backing off of their support for the flag.
In case you missed it, Haley dismissed the issue just a few months ago because she’s Indian-American, and CEOs don’t seem to mind:
“What I can tell you is over the last three and a half years, I spent a lot of my days on the phones with CEOs and recruiting jobs to this state. I can honestly say I have not had one conversation with a single CEO about the Confederate flag.”
“… we really kind of fixed all that when you elected the first Indian-American female governor, when we appointed the first African-American U.S. senator, that sent a huge message.”
