It is now 2015 and the flag will be coming down at last.
On Monday, the South Carolina Senate passed the bill to remove the flag on a final vote of 36 to 3.
Just today South Carolina’s House of Representatives, on a 94 to 20 vote, gave final approval to remove the Confederate flag.
“it is a new day in South Carolina, a day we can all be proud of, a day that truly brings us all together as we continue to heal, as one people and one state.”
The removal of the flag comes only after after nine people were killed last month at a historic black church in Charleston in which the killer posted multiple pictures of himself online posing with the flag, in addition to a racist manifesto about white supremacy.
It should be noted that the bill passed only after several pro-flag Republicans tried attaching as many as 50 amendments to the bill and threatened a possible filibuster in order to stop the flags removal.
Now that the flag has finally come down in South Carolina let's get to work on all the other states that still fly this divisive racist rag on their state's grounds.
