Mississippi’s racist state flag has finally come down. Now the real work begins | Kimberly Griffin and Donna Ladd
There’s no time for self-congratulation. We must keep working to root out white supremacy across this state and this nation
The 1 July ceremony to retire the Mississippi flag was dignified and solemn, ending with a trio of white state officials – the lieutenant governor, the speaker of the Mississippi house of representatives and the director of the Mississippi Department of Archives and History – walking slowly away from what looked like a black hearse, with folded Mississippi flags resting in each person’s outstretched hands. Bits of the garish red-white-and-blue Confederate battle canton peeked out from the folds as the sentries handed them to the Black director of the state-run history and civil rights museums.
Suddenly, after 126 years of taunting and jeering at Black Mississippians and their white allies from atop flagpoles, the flag is history, another consequence of the tipping-point killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery. The lightning-strike epiphany that the flag actually does hurt Black Mississippians, after decades of callous indifference from most white people here with many insisting those who don’t like it can just leave, finally drew enough additional ayes from the Republican-controlled state legislature to end the flag’s racist reign in an emotional Sunday vote.
