The events of the last two days has again put a spotlight on the symbol of the south that epitomizes an ideology that most likely led to the event.; I’m speaking of the confederate flag that flies over the State house along with our American flag at the capitol in Columbia, South Carolina. When our American flag was lowered to half mast to acknowledge the loss of life of the nine parishioners who were massacred in a senseless act of hatred and violence by someone (a young southern man) who, during the act, expressed that he “had to do it” because “you people are raping our women and destroying our country”, the confederate flag stood at full mast - no lowering of THAT flag for the lost lives of 9 Black people! Nothing spoke clearer to me that THAT flag is for whites only.
