WHICH SIDE OF HISTORY?
Living historical times as we breathe today. Major changes in every which today. The ‘band aid’ which covered American reality has brutally and without care torn away and it hurts.
A huge change took place in Mississippi this weekend and it became a reality today.
Remove the confederate flag portion of their state flag!
Just a few weeks ago, as Mississippi lawmakers mobilized to take down the only state flag in the nation with the Confederate battle emblem embedded into it, Gov. Tate Reeves said the choice was not theirs to make.
“It should be the people who make that decision,” Mr. Reeves told reporters then, “not some backroom deal by a bunch of politicians in Jackson.”
But on Tuesday, June 30, 2020, Mr. Reeves signed into law a measure that removes the flag that has flown over the state for 126 years and been at the heart of a conflict Mississippi has grappled with for generations: how to view a legacy that traces to the Civil War.
The legislation mandates the “prompt, dignified and respectful” removal of the flag, which features the blue bars and white stars of the Confederate battle flag, within 15 days.

This week, Mississippi chose the right side of history.
Unfortunately, it’s not a choice Trump would ever make.
