The Confederate Flag Comes Down in South Carolina, But Still Flies

Donald Trumps the Media and Political Debate

After a rancorous, 13-hour debate that went into the wee hours of the morning, South Carolina’s House voted 94-20 today to remove the Confederate flag from the statehouse grounds.

Leid Stories in a commentary says that while the removal of the flag may be seen by many as a “victory over what politely is being called “hate,” the flag of white supremacy still flies high in hearts and minds beyond the borders of South Carolina.

Donald Trump has bulldozed his way into the 2016 presidential race seemingly with the hot-button issue of immigration. But, really, it’s about race. And money.

Leid Stories explains how and why Trump is taking dead aim at Mexico and Mexicans.

Calls to drop Confederate flag spread nationwide. This is nothing more than a safe, easy way to say you’re not racist while not doing anything about racism. Would anybody, Wal-Mart, South Carolina, Mississippi, NASCAR, anybody have even talked about that flag is nine people hadn’t died?

Here’s what the designer of two Confederate flags used during the Civil War had to say about their meaning:

As a people we are fighting maintain the Heaven-ordained supremacy of the white man over the inferior or colored race; a white flag would thus be emblematical of our cause.
