Mississippi VOTED TO CHANGE THEIR STATE FLAG YESTERDAY! They recently came under HOT fire as their flag contains the Confederate flag. Flagception if you will.
There were growing calls to change their flag as the current racial climate in America wouldn’t allow for it. And the fact that the CONFEDERACY WERE A BUNCH OF RACISTS (for obvious reason).
That being said, apparently the vote wasn’t a resounding unified vote, and QUITE a few actually voted AGAINST changing the flag. Not enough to pose any real threat to the change, but yet and still some who oppose. In the Mississippi State Senate, 37 approved the change, while 14 disapproved. In the Mississippi State House, 91 approved the change, while 23 didn’t.
Thus the measure was sent it the Governor’s desk, who has already said they would approve it! Good work Mississippi! And only took 126 years!
See who said yes and no here! (Link does not show final vote totals)
