A New Day in South Carolina !

I had to follow up on the post I made about South Carolina and the confederate flag. This woman, Jenny Horne, is a descendent of Jefferson Davis, who was the first president of the Conferacy. She with the son of Strum Thurmond,  are leaders to remove the flag. Strum Thurmond was a state and national politician who was an avoid segregationist, now his son voted to remove the confederate flag.  I am glad that South Carolina has voted to remove the flag so as not to offend anyone and continue the needed healing for all.

 

This Is Incredible South Carolina !

    Thanks Shaun, it is an historical day and even more so tomorrow when the Stars and Bars come down and are moved to the museum.

    I enjoyed her speech. I really enjoyed it when you told me her background. I am so sick of racism disguised in ‘love of America’. The recent tirade of Donald Trump against Mexicans really got to me, I have been married to a Mexican immigrant for 54 years and we have 5 Latino sons.
