MS to Defend Lawsuit Over State Flag

(Jackson, MS) — Even though he thinks the flag hurts the state and should change, Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood says he will defend the Confederate-themed state flag against a lawsuit that seeks to remove the banner. Hood said Wednesday that his opinion about state laws won’t prevent him from fulfilling his oath to defend them. Carlos Moore, an attorney from Grenada, filed the federal lawsuit Monday that says the Confederate X on the flag puts him and other African-Americans in danger.
