The American Governor of Mississippi Tate Reeves spoke about the intention to change the state flag containing the symbols of the Confederacy of the southern States, which many consider racist. A message he posted in his Twitter account.
According to him, state legislators for several days to discuss the concept of a new flag, but to success they never came. Reeves said that if they can agree and send the bill to him this weekend, he will sign it. The Governor also noted that the task of uniting the people of this state, standing in front of him, even harder than fighting the coronavirus or the consequences of tornadoes and floods.
Earlier, the President of the United States Donald trump urged to put in prison for a year for the burning of the American flag. Currently, U.S. law does not provide for punishment for flag burning, as it right, according to the interpretation of the Supreme court, protected by the first amendment of the Constitution about freedom of speech.
