    Alabama governor orders Confederate flags removed from state capitol

    Alabama governor orders Confederate flags removed from state capitol

    "I am very proud of the governor," said Doug Jones, a former U.S. attorney who prosecuted the 1963 bombing of a black church in Birmingham, Alabama by Ku Klux Klan members killed four black girls.

    "There's a pretty strong movement now. It's just tragic that it took the death of nine people to make people start realizing that flag is a symbol of hate," Jones said in a phone interview.

    The Confederate flag controversy is the latest flashpoint in a year of intense debate over U.S. race relations, sparked by the killings of unarmed black men by police officers in a number of cities, including Ferguson, Missouri; New York City and Baltimore. The outcry has prompted protests under the banner "black lives matter."
    Well this was unexpected. However, it is welcomed. Could this the first of many? We'll see.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
