One week after student leaders from the University of Mississippi voted overwhelmingly for the state flag of Mississippi to be removed from campus, because it contains the white supremacist confederate battle flag emblem, it was removed from campus by officials.

A white supremacist, confederate flag waving group, were recently indicted on terrorism charges.
The group known as “Respect The Flag” , had fifteen of their members charged with violating Georgia’s street gang terrorism and prevention act and making terroristic threats.
The group reportedly got into a tense situation with a group of African-Americans having a birthday party at the Douglasville, Georgia home of Melissa Alford.
According to witnesses, when the group drove their pickup trucks by the house party, they started yelling racial slurs, and started brandishing weapons, as some in the group waved their racist confederate flag. If convicted they could face up to twenty years in prison.
