Unprecedented…South Carolina Govorner Nikki Haley…

I thought I would never live to see the day when a Republican South Carolina Governor would call for the removal of the Confederate Battle Flag from the front steps of the South Carolina State House but today proved me wrong. The Governor and both republican U.S. Senators Graham and Scott called for the removal of the flag from the State House grounds and moved to a museum “most likely the Confederate relic museum a few blocks away.” This follows photos of Dylann Roof photographed with the flag and weapon in which he looks to be advocating white supremacy. It is also reported that he held the disillusioned view that blacks were taking over and needed to be stopped  and by killing the nine parishioners in Charleston he could spark racial strife and more racial violence.

It took courage by the Governor and Senators  to make a stand on calling for the removal of the flag from  the State house grounds  but do they have the fortitude to follow through? This battle with the flag has gone on too long I do support the Governor and Senators and I hope it is moved to the old relic room off of state grounds.
