The Confederate Flag….A Symbol of Slavery or Racism? On the next “Conversations Of A Sistah”

As you know, the uproar over the Confederate flag began last month after photos surfaced online of church shooter Dylan Roof waving the flag. It was the execution of nine (9) individuals in a church in Charleston, South Carolina to change the wave of this conversation.

The South Carolina Senate voted Monday to remove the Confederate flag from a pole on the Statehouse grounds, though the proposal still needs approval from the state House and the governor.

The bill requires a two-thirds vote in each chamber; the Senate approved it 37-3. Gov. Nikki Haley has said she wants the flag to come down and will sign the bill.

Monday’s vote comes less than a week after the 15th anniversary of South Carolina taking the flag off the Capitol dome where it flew since the early 1960s and moving it to beside a monument honoring Confederate soldiers.

    Tra SC is a slave state with a slave mentality and the blacks are a hateful species. They’d rather remove a flag than uplift their minds and change their behavior. Visit and see for yourself. It’s like the freakin twilight zone.

      I’m sorry, do you live here Ashanti? I am far from being slave minded. Please don’t use blanket statements to categorize all blacks in thus state. I’m so tired of people talking about things they know absolutely nothing about.

    Well I guess we better get used to seeing that flag everywhere – on every car, truck, RV, porch and storefront. That flag flapped in the wind for over a century with nary a word from any of you bandwagon jumpers. Congrats for making it the most popular flag in America.

    Tracy I was glad when your bottom line on the show tonight was, that flag=Racism….When will White people admit racism is a huge problem in this country?

    Black on Black is not the problem, the discrepancy in punishment is👈🏿 When will White people denounce Limbaugh, Hannity, Oriely, Nugent, Zimmerman? When will conservatives admit Bush sucked? When will White people and obedient Blacks look at the numbers? True statistics, true facts? You stressed that tonight.
