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


July 6, 2015 by The ReadyWriter


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.

    Chile white folk having a fit about their precious flag


  2. QueenC says:

    Taking that flag down, is the least they could do.


  3. Ashanti says:

    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.


    • shawnia says:

      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.


  4. shawnia says:

    This should be an interesting topic Blog Queen


  5. Acquitta says:

    F u c k that – what is South Carolina going to do about white supremacy? I’m not with all this symbolism stuff………I want to see REAL change.


  6. Mrs. Hawthorne says:

    I also want to see real change! Removal of the flag means we are taking a small step in the right direction.


  7. Lilly says:

    Tra fighting over a flag takes priority over the bigger issues that plague black America? I think NOT!!! Black-on-black crime and the rising of HIV rates among black men and women iz real.


  8. Yes says:

    I want the flag down


  9. RandomChick says:

    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.


  10. Yvonne says:

    It’s crazy but since them killings the conversation is serious about this flag.


  11. Nicole says:

  12. Browngirl says:

    Solidarity. It ain’t about the flag, it ain’t about the civil war, it’s about solidarity people.


  13. Applebottom says:

    Alls I know is…Racism is real and that’s what the flag represents to me.


    • Zenna says:

  14. Henrietta says:

    Yeah it’s a sign of racism and I’ll be tuning in.


  15. Princess says:

  27. Ionna says:

    Tracy, Bill Cosby admitted to drugging and raping women in a court deposition. I’m watching CBS news….


  28. Adriane says:

    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.


  29. Lisa says:

    I caught the end of the show I’m going to listen to the rewind tonight when I take it down. so I’m going to avoid these comments.


  30. Pinky says:

    White folk has always been a trip! I’m just patiently waiting til our economy crashes like Greece and chit hits the fan. It’s a matter of time.


  31. Starr says:

    Lawd Tracy whereda hell u been? You just giving up on us 😥


  32. Tamala says:

    A Republican official here in CT decided to fly his confederate flag recently. He can kiss his political career goodbye
