  1. Next theyll insist on the black power fist like they have in michigan. Africans have been opposing humanity/white ppl since white ppl freed them as slaves their country sold them as

  2. I think the law said that until the commission designs and Mississippians approve the new flag – Mississippi will have NO state flag.

    So the racist flag is out immediately. This report says the racist flag is in use for a few more months
