Greenville City Council has voted to remove the Mississippi state flag from all city properties and buildings

Mississippi Flag

Council members voted 4-2 Tuesday in favor of removing the flag because of it’s racist connotations, due to the inclusion of the battle flag in the upper left quadrant.

Under Mississippi law, flying the state flag is not a requirement.

This issue was brought to the council, by “Reverend” Roosevelt Johnson, who said it wasn’t about infringing on anyone’s beliefs….righttttt. Suuuure….. You wouldn’t happen to be associated with Black Lives Matter, would you, Rev?
