So who does this mayor think he is? Disrespecting one of the United States by pulling down its flag in a knee-jerk reaction claiming he does not like what Mississippi stands for? This state has a painting of a lynching. Pull down the Florida and Alabama flags, they are Confederate flags that wereused during the Civil War. Change the name of Atlanta because that was one of the centers of slavery; we have a town named after it. Pull down the Hawaiian state flag, it is a copy of the British flag, the country that brought slaves to this country.
Also, why does the governor think that the state money is his personal checkbook to pay for his personal beliefs. The Supreme Court says it is OK for same-sex marriage, so who cares?
One more thing that is not right. The man that ran into a house, then the police showed up and wrestled with him, restrained him and he died in their custody. Where are the NAACP and other alphabet groups? Oh, yeah, this man is Hispanic. Think about it.
