Should Mississippi Replace Its State Flag? Show Comments 4 Comments Eric on June 29, 2020 Really, the Confederate Flag is no more racist than the Gay Pride Flag! hm hammac on June 29, 2020 The flag as it exists affords no ill-will to anybody, and if it were changed there would be more protest disruption to the state and country for continued complaining that offers no peace and civility! Farris Gregory on June 30, 2020 NO, NO,NO,NOOOOOOOOOO. As a war veteran age 89, I fought for the American Flag and the Mississippi State Flag which has the Confederate Flag within. My great grandfather fought for that Flag. As a southerner I was born in Mississippi, educated in Mississippi which is a state that I love, My family and I have lived no where else. All we ask is to leave our history alone. If those who don’t like the flag and what it stands for, then get the hell out of this state. james w scott on July 1, 2020 it is history, and shouldn’t try to change it to fit the way some people think in 2020. My great-grandfather fought under that flag and his brother died fighting for that flag in the battle of Murfreesboro. It is the flag of Mississippi, supposed to be a state, with very few rights left under the federal bulldozer. Almost half of the then existing United States fought under that flag, we might have lost that war but not the way we think. Hope that never changes. Thank goodness I am 82 and also a veteran of Uncle Sap’s armed forces and maybe the new world order won’t take over until after I’m gone. Comments are closed.
