The Mississippi Flag is a joke i sat on the beach many days with Jason whitfield and it seem like we need to do it again but in a better way this time because the rebel flay is for the loser that faught in the civil war and lost and if you are prided of the civil war,i'm not going to be prided of someone kicking my ass get it rightrebel flag lovers.If you like getting your ass whip fly your flag on your car,in your yard on your body but not on public grounds.An really by being another color that flag can't talk,eat,walk but show can be in some of the dangerous places at time Hanging,police cars and on the state grounds It's A New Day so get it right Mississippi no more rebel flag because the blacks have a flag for the state capital to fly,it's with the brother's fist on it and it's black and white one love kennyjholmes@yahoo.com

Dear KJHSR:

You are a racist "brother". How sad is it that (1) you can't spell correctly; (2) your grammar leaves much to be desired; (3) you waste time posting useless ramblings; (4) you actually sat with Jason Whitfield aka the biggest racist on the coast; (5) you are so concerned with the rebel flag; (6) you are from Nebraska and minding the business of MS; (7) you actually want the flag to be a "brothers fist"....could you be any more racist? I bet your family is proud. Stay in Nebraska....we have enough racist here to last us a lifetime.

The entire state of Mississippi is a joke. The white folks still have solid control. Rev. Al Sharpton was right when he said who wants to live in the state.
The only Mississippians I know are ignorant black folk (for still living in that slave master's state) and hillbilly, poor white trash white folks.
I hate the state of MS. It should be abolished.
I dont even want to respond to this comment because first of all if you are not from Mississippi, dont live in Mississippi or have any buisness with Mississippi then shut your f*#%ing mouth. Not everyone from Mississippi is ignorant. Here are some things people should know...
1. We are not all ignorant
2. We are not all inbred
3. We dont all live in the woods with our dog and a spitoon on the fornt porch playing th banjo saying yep yep mighty fine day out here.
4. We were not the only state that owned slaves and getting rid of our flag does not apologize for slavery. So all the other states that have said oh we will do this to show how we are so apologetic for slavery are a bunch of bitches. That was the past not the present get over it.
5. Calling everyone in Mississippi a redneck is just as racist as calling every African American the *N* word or every asian person a chinc or every mexican a spic they are all degrating and if you dont know anything more than how to say the word then shut the fuck up.
6. If it werent for Mississippi then who would build the 50%+ ships that we built for the navy. Who would supply the most soldiers for the armed forces of the USA.
7. I bet you would come to Mississippi in person and stand in front of us and say what you said on the computer because then you couldnt be the pansy little bitch that you are sitting behind that computer screen.
8. We have provided some of the greatest atheletes that any sport in the world has seen.
9. We have only 2 Major Universities in this state but I would bet my life that they are better than 75 %of the other instituions in the US.

If you dont know me dont judge me. I love Mississippi. I love everything about Mississippi. Fuck Al Sharpton He is one of the biggest racists I have ever heard open his mouth. Im proud to say that I love my state, proud to say that I treat everyone that I meet as family, I am proud to say that if you came here I would probably treat you the same becasue that is how Mississippians are. So you can down us as much as you would like but your words have no validity and you sir/mam are more ignorant than any Mississippian that i have ever met.

Ryan from Tupelo;

Thanks for those words, those people who don't live or work in Miss. has no business even commenting on
what goes on down here.They need to clean out from under their own steps before commenting or trying to
tend to our business. Tx is not that great, we can see that from our current PRESIDENT!!!!

Once again, good job. I couldn't agree with you more. We have a great state and a lot to be thankful for. There are a lot of people in all states that are racist. That's not an opinion. That is fact. People still live in the past and dwell on the past. Things that happened in the past and in Mississippi in the past are just that...history. We need to learn to all move on. It is people talking about this state that really don't know about all of us that makes it hard to change the outlook that others have. Things happened in the past that none of us had any control over and most of us were not alive at that time. I know. I teach about this every single day. It's time to move on. Enough about the past. We can't change it but we can learn from it.

First point, THE SOUTH, not just Mississippi got our asses whipped. But we can hold our heads high now because we have the most awesome state in the entire union.

Second point, Sat on the beach with Jason Whitfield,huh?? Many black supporters were also there protecting the flag including one gentleman wearing a family members civil war uniform.And who got their ass whipped then?? The flag stayed and he left. Why didnt you have your butt at work? Oh, I'm sorry, that would have interfered with your welfare check, right.

Third point, why do we have to remove the state flag to appease your race. More blacks have died under the American Flag than any other. Are you just too ignorant to see that this is a useless fight. Even if the government ever caves to your kind and changes the flag, The Rebel flag will live on and with pride. It is only a symbol of hate when Jack*asses like yourself make it a symbol of hate. Flag with a fist? You don't seriously think that will ever fly, do you.

Finally, Al Sharpton can personally kiss my SWEET WHITE SOUTHERN BUTT!! Dont like our state, your loss. You've got 49 others to go slither into.

Please quit typing!!! You are a disgrace to GHS. I wish your family could have used some of the profits from their businesses in Gulfport to send you back to school!! Playing sports for GHS is probably the only reason you graduated because it certainly wasn't because you passed ENGLISH!

How about a flag with a big heart in the middle?? Would that symbolize LOVE to you or would you find some way to twist that. We all know our history. Studied it at GHS! Yes, Mississippians along with a lot of states citizens owned slaves. DID I?? NOOOOOOOOO!!!!! The Rebel Flag and The Civil War are a part of our History. Museums are filled with History. Do you want CARTE BLACHE for the black man to decide what pieces of history we can keep. You already get a whole damn month, which THANK GOD!, is over. How about if we follow it with WHITE HISTORY MONTH. Get over it and do something more productive with your life, like get an education!!!

YESTERDAY IS THE PAST
TOMORROW IS THE FUTURE
TODAY IS A GIFT!!

that's why we call it the PRESENT!!

I'm going to tell you a little about black history month,we don't have it once a yr.,we have it every day.Black History is every day for anybody that is black because we made this world even if you look back in the bible it talk about black leader never once it talk about white an you can say you are something else you will be lying so if you want to know the fact read history if it wasn't for black being in the fields a white man wouldn't made it during the thing we put up with so don't go there with black history,then there is the thing that we invented but the white man get's the credit but the bible don't lie,but man will any color so don't get on that trip about black history month,by saying you glade that it's over and that you are glade that it's only one month because it's black history ever day and month

I find it hard to believe that someone who can not even spell correctly could Possibly be a Successful Business Man. Unless You happen to be selling Worms for Fishing on the River Banks.
I hope that you did read up on Mississippi's History. Not everything that good that happened has been accomplished by Someone Working in the Field.(Believe it or Not) I don't believe that the Indians were Black, and neither were the First Pilgrims. They seemed to do just Fine without having Blacks work in their Fields.

WHAT THE HELL LANGUAGE ARE YOU SPEAKING??If I am reading this correctly, I believe you are saying you dont live in the "past" and that the only time things come up is when someone does something stupid that triggers blacks???? That has got to be one of the most assanine comments I have ever heard!!

You remind me of an old quote I heard in class at GHS!! "It is better to be thought a fool than to open ones mouth and remove ALL doubt" KENNY, STEP AWAY FROM THE KEYBOARD!!!

Never had to sell worms nor go fishing so if you want to start talking about smart look how smart you by saying that you did sell worms instead of or family,now that you brought up the Native Indians and the first Pilgrims and i know that you are not neither one nor black so get to the point we made this world blacks, native indians and pligrim so were do the credit goes when it come to you hertiage,now talk to me please if you can't talk too the bible because it don't talk about white people at all it's aname that yall took up but don't know you bible instead of your history buddie

I don't get welfare and to tell someone to kiss your butt that show how much class you really got to be white and if i was truelly white i would be ashame of you but since you really don't know what color i'm truelly is that's were you make an ass out of yourself buddie,let's get to the point buddie Al Sharpton is not one of my favor people so talking about him is beatting your head on a door,so when you talk about ignorant look in the mirror today and say the same words and then see who you see and tell me later because if you look in the mirror and see someone else then the word ignorant comes again you buddie.And this is the last thing did you really see how many white came down too really support Jason more white then black so who really want the flag down instead of the blacks,because black have gotten to the point that the ebel flag is a joke on truth is that Jesus has the last word behind the flag and our comment so get it right buddie
