The Mississippi state flag has the Army of Norther Virginia flag on it. Does that make it a racist flag?

The Mississippi flag has an old Virginia flag on it? That's not racism, that's bad geography... lol

Confederate heritage.....on a flag? Today? Kind of outdated if you ask me but, HEY! If that's what the people of a State liked and voted for...It's their free choice .... So it's fine...!!

A few years ago the people of MS VOTED in a statewide referendum to change the state flag.
It IS what the people voted it to be.

(I've lived in MS almost whole life & just moved to LA less than 2 years ago-still go 'home' every month.)

There is nothing racist about a confederate flag. It is simply a battle flag that was adapted for the confederacy because of it's symbolism of state's rights.

It just represents Mississippi's heritage. There's a lumberjack on WI's state flag because it's important to our history. The Mississippi flag is no different.

Republicans wanted to change the Virginia flag because it shows a woman's boob.

It was a few years ago. And who was it pushing for the change? That's right, Ken Cuccinelli, the Repub's candidate for governor.
