    It is about time that very official responsible for maintaining symbols of hate, racism, and treason “cave” and remove those symbols.

    What would you think were it a Nazi swastika flag? You do know that Confederate battle flags have the same meaning to African Americans as Nazi symbols have to us, don’t you? Or have you been living in a cave for 75 years?
