The Rebel flag has long been a staple in my family and in the South. I’ve heard the tired explanations of “heritage, not hate.” I’ve been told by people who fly the flag proudly that they love me dearly. LOL.

The south has a terrible history– built on the bloodied backs of black women and men. That flag has long been a symbol of this– despite the cries from those who disagree.

Today the City of Gulfport decided to remove it from city hall. I don’t live in Gulfport— but this is such a win for the South. We will, without a doubt, reclaim this beautiful, warm state. This is just the start.

30-something Mississippi queer. Bleeding heart with a soft spot for honesty and oversharing. Conquering corporate America and my own insecurities– one day at a time.
