Take It Down!

Peace and Love to all,

The 16th Street Baptist Church bombing, an act of white supremacist terrorism perpetrated by four members of the Ku Klux Klan, occurred in Birmingham, Alabama on Sunday, September 15, 1963 killing four beautiful little Black girls and injuring 22 others. That vicious event marked a turning point in the United States 1960s Civil Rights Movement and contributed to support for passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Symbols of hate have NO place in our government.

The Confederate flag is not a symbol of southern pride but rather a symbol of rebellion and racism. On the heels of the brutal killing of nine Black people in a South Carolina church by a racist terrorist, it’s time to put that symbol of rebellion and racism behind us and move toward healing and a better United States of America!

That’s why I signed a petition to The South Carolina State House, The South Carolina State Senate, and Governor Nikki Haley, which says:

“Symbols of hate and division have no place in our government. It’s time to stand up for what’s right and take down the Confederate flag!”

If we don’t stand for something,  we’ll fall for anything.

Stay blessed.

Liberation Through Education.

 

Love is Love.
