Discrimination In Plans To Celebrate Confederate Statue


Discrimination In Plans To Celebrate Confederate Statue

The group Sons and Daughters of the Confederacy on Tuesday evening is celebrating the 100th anniversary of the statue’s unveiling, but representatives from the group said city officials made planning the event difficult.

Group spokesman Jerry Hobbs said at first the city welcomed the celebration with open arms, but later ruled out any march in the streets and are not allowing guns to be fired in honor of those killed in the war. Hobbs said the city finally pulled out of the event entirely.

Hobbs said he feels the city is discriminating against the group.
