  1. It Is our state flag, like it or not.( I had rather the speed limit be faster but I have to comply. ) Even though it isn’t law, it is respect . Something , we as Christians , should show more of in our business lives; if we truly are, if we truly expect His blessings. Division is of the father of lies. We should stand united. And yes, if you receive , you should be thankful enough, if not respectful enough to fly the flag we have. If you want to work to change it, fine. But this is here and now.

  2. You keep lying to them and telling them their heritage is “racist”. I hope that these young people wake up and do their own research. The truth is out there if you look for it! Start with your family, most of us have an amazing story and they are just trying to take away our national and regional pride and also our identity. Don’t let them do that! The first slave owner in America was in fact a black man! They sold their own into slavery when they were the loosers to other tribes! Think, look, listen, don’t just keep gobbling up liberal and biased thinking! Learn to think for yourselves and learn to stand up what is right! Even if it means going against “popular” thinking!

    1. It’s the flag that was designed to represent slavery and has now been used everywhere to represent hate. When the KKK and neo-Nazis use the flag to stand for hate, I don’t see white Southerners standing up to them and telling them to stop using their heritage flag. Why is that? It’s because the KKK and other hate groups have always used that flag and we Southerners all know it but won’t admit it.

      1. Lisa, you don’t have a clue about the flag or the true history of that time period. Read “The Un-Civil War” by Leonard Scruggs, “Truth Of The War Conspiracy” by H W Johnstone, “Complicity: How The North Promoted, Prolonged And Profited From Slavery” by Farrow and Lang, “Why The War Was Not about Slavery” by Gene Kizer, and “Confederacy 101” by Lochlainn Seabrook. For the truth about the Battle Flag, here’s Pastor John Weaver explaining it to you:

  3. We won’t have another gov like the one we have now. What do we do when we don’t have anyone to stick up for our traditions?

  4. Rich Donors, Delta Politicians, Bankers and Lawyers all kiss the butt of Liberal education at the New Univ. of Calif. / Oxford. I hope the school loses accreditation for it’s Charter, Football/Sports Program. The Marxist Law School is so second rate to the Mississippi School of Law in Jackson!

  5. In 2000, the Supreme Court of Mississippi ruled[16] that the state legislature in 1906 had repealed the adoption of the state flag in 1894. What was considered to be the official state flag was only so through custom or tradition during the previous 94 years.[17] The flag was officially readopted on April 17, 2001.[2]

    In January 2001, Governor Ronnie Musgrove appointed an independent commission which developed a new proposed design,[15][17] and on April 17, 2001, a non-binding state referendum to change the flag was put before Mississippi voters. The proposal would have replaced the Confederate battle flag with a blue canton with 20 stars. The outer ring of 13 stars would represent the original Thirteen Colonies, the ring of six stars would represent the six nations that have had sovereignty over Mississippi territory (various Native American nations as a collective nation, French Empire, Spanish Empire, Great Britain, the United States, and the Confederacy), and the inner and slightly larger star would represent Mississippi itself. The 20 stars would also represent Mississippi’s status as the 20th member of the United States.[18] The referendum for a new flag was defeated in a vote of 64% (488,630 votes) to 36% (267,812) and the old flag was retained.[19]
