Flag Foolishness – The Gantt Report

AFRICANGLOBE - You can remove the Confederate flag from the flag poles and grounds of political institutions but you can’t take the Confederate attitudes from the hearts and minds of politicians and other conservatives! Black people are oftentimes too symbolic. That is why many of us enjoy marches more than we enjoy movements. We enjoy holidays more than we embrace history and we appreciate political promises far more than we enjoy direct positive political actions!

Bree Newsome Took A Stand Climbing The SC Capitol Flag Pole...

AFRICANGLOBE - I was so proud of Bree Newsome, who in the space of just a few hours, demonstrated what it means to be, as Williamson said, "brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous." Newsome bravely scaled a pole at the South Carolina State Capitol and removed the confederate flag from state grounds. While many of us bemoaned the display of the racist symbol of oppression and white supremacy, Newsome took action.
