Confederate flags-Honoring the dead or racist symbol?
The Missouri State Park Board bill made it to committee this week and drew opposition from a national association.
Clyde Williams, a representative from the NAACP, showed up at the House corrections and public institutions committee meeting to oppose HB 495.
"This bill is an attempt to have the Confederate Flag be displayed on state property," Williams said. "For the past two years, Missouri has been in the national spotlight in the month of June as the state flying the Confederate flag."
Williams continued by saying the Civil War (sic) might have settled some scores more than 150 years ago, but some wounds still fester.
Those people are attacking our dead heroes!! PoP
