Mississippi Passes Takes Steps To Change State Flag

Written by on June 29, 2020

On Saturday, officials in Mississippi passed legislature that would make changing the state flag legal.

Two thirds of the Mississippi House voted for the resolution and Mississippi State Governor Tate Reeves agreed to sign the bill if it came across his desk.

Earlier in the week, the Governor said,

“a vote of the people the flag represents,” but changed his tune Saturday when he tweeted:

“The argument over the 1894 flag has become as divisive as the flag itself and it’s time to end it. If they send me a bill this weekend, I will sign it,” this weekend.

19 years ago, the people of Mississippi voted to keep the state flag, but now that millions of Americans, as well as multi billion dollar corporations and organizations like the NCAA have said they will not tolerate the confederate flag and what it stands for — state residents and officials are beginning to change their minds.
