Columbus, Mississippi Falls to the Anti-Confederate Flag Delusion

By deciding to remove the state flag of Mississippi from city property.

  •  “I hope the sons and daughters of the Confederacy will appreciate how we see it. We want to unite.”

Columbus City Councilman Charlie Cox thinks we need to apologise for history in order to make it right.

  • People think we’re still tobacco-chewing racists and that’s not the way it is,” said Columbus councilman Charlie Cox, who is white. “Mississippi is not the way it was back in the old days. People here want Mississippi to move forward and that’s what it will take.”
