US Senator Roger Wicker now weighs in during a speech in Jackson,
I hate to use a tragedy like this, a criminal act of murder, to advance policy,” Republican Wicker said Monday before he spoke to the Greater Jackson Chamber Partnership . “But certainly they have no right to be using our state flag as a symbol of white supremacy … It would be more unifying if we put this Mississippi flag in a museum and replaced it with something that was more unifying. That is still my position.”
MS Governor Phil Bryant on 8/14 posted the following.
This comes on the heels of what he posted over the weekend.
The incidents in Va. are disturbing. Let us all pray for our nation this Sunday morning. We have no room for hate when we seek God's love.
