    That makes sense. Legislature needs to move to get rid of it, and shouldn't be putting a divisive issue like that to referendum, but seems like the populace should have a say in picking the next one.

    Seems like Beagle answered it. Remove it, make a commissions and then let the public pick from a few designs

    Last few times Mississippi has done this they've gotten a Black Bear and a Shark with Legs.

    It is entirely possible the people of Mississippi pick something incredibly stupid.

    As long as it's 1) not what we have now and 2) not a swastika, I don't really give a fuck what it is.

    That's why you have a commission only give them 2-3 choices.

    Ben Allen had a good post this morning just going off in rednecks and how they need to just disappear as they have held the state back from making any significant progress. He seemed livid.

    I think the Stennis/hospitality flag and the seal flag are pretty certain to be finalists. Maybe they'll allow 1 or 2 other options.

    I like the seal one. I think a magnolia on it looks good. I think I’m confused.

    Call me crazy, but shouldn’t those who support the confederate flag for heritage be outraged with the KKK and Nazis for taking their symbol? Seems like that is the fight they would take if they were sincere.

    They were part of a much larger delegation. They're only "out in front of this" to the extent that it will get sports media's attention. They're also the two highest paid state employees.

    They'll do like Georgia and turn it into the actual flag of the Confederacy instead of the battle flag.

    Maybe we can get UGA players on board to boycott the season.

    I mean if they wanted to save their flag, I would think going to neo Nazi rallies and KKK rallies and telling them they are racist POS and not use their flag would be the right thing to do. But yet they sit silent allow it to happen. That’s why you can’t take the heritage thing seriously

    Have at it. Although it's a tweet about athletes being vocal about racism, so it's not totally unrelated.

    I'll admit to not knowing much about that flag when it was voted on and changed back in 2004 (and probably didn't vote on it since it was during a presidential primary while I was in college out of state). Once I looked into it about 10 years ago I was surprised that it was just a CSA flag and hope more people find this out. I've brought this up to some friends in that past and very few, if any, recognized this fact either.

    Here's to hoping the GA flag (and the MS one as well) gets changed again in the near future but given our current state leadership I won't hold my breath..

    tangentially related but the way the arguments around confederate statues and shit was framed throughout my life is horrific in retrospect. or i was just too dumb to see the whites only framing as a white.
