The Mar-Saline Branch of the NAACP Challenges Attempts to Resurrect the Confederate Flag

     The Missouri State Conference of National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) during its Quarterly Meeting today in Columbia, MO expressed their extreme hurt and disappointment that Governor Blunt has decided to divide the State by resurrecting the disdainful ideologies that the Confederate Flag epitomizes. The body, condemning any efforts to raise the Confederate Flag in any way, unanimously passed a resolution.
     We are calling on all Missourians to make a visible stand on Sunday (June 5, 2005) by flying the American Flag; call, fax and email Governor Blunt at 573.751-3222 or mogov@mail.mo.gov and Representative McGhee at 573.751-1462, 816.230-5646, or email:mike.mcghee@house.mo.gov to voice opposition to the flag.

Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection.
