Delta State University Removes the State Flag

Chicot Memorial

(Cleveland, MS)- Delta State University is the last of Mississippi’s eight public universities to stop displaying the state flag. DSU President Bill LaForge announced the decision Thursday in a news release. He says the flag has been retired to the university’s archives. LaForge says the university acted because state government has not made a move to change the flag. He added, Mississippi needs a flag symbolizing unity, not divisiveness.

    The people voted to keep our flag. What are voting rights for if certain groups can dictate whether or not it is flown at state funded buildings and institutions just because they may not like it. If you don’t like it, get signatures for another vote. Until then fly the flag we have or get NO STATE FUNDING! I, for one, will not be purchasing another DSU tag for my car.
