A seventh College in Mississippi has decided to stop displaying the official Mississippi flag because of the prominent confederate symbol on it.

Delta State’s President issued a statement explaining the decision:


  This is a painful decision in many respects because this is a highly charged emotional issue for many people.  The University finds itself in the untenable position of making a decision that will disappoint some, no matter the outcome.  But in the absence of state action, we are making a decision that I believe is right and just on all levels. 

In June of 2015, Governor Bentley ordered confederate flags removed from a Civil War Memorial at the Capitol Building.

The Confederate Flag was removed from atop the Alabama Capitol Building in the 1990’s by then Governor Jim Folsom.
