Historic turnaround in Mississippi: Governor Tate Reeves, republican, signed the law that wipes out the confederate symbols from the historic state flag. It was the only flag in the USA featuring the emblems of a past considered racist and linked to the oppression of the era of slavery. “This is a new day for Mississippi,” rejoice the promoters of the law.

“This is not a political moment for me but a solemn opportunity to guide our Mississippi family towards unity, to reconcile and move forward,” Reeves said in a statement, after the state parliament gave the go-ahead to the law for change the flag with the blue cross of the confederate soldiers. Critics have been calling for a change of flag for decades but the difference was made by the anti-racism movement mobilized by the killing of African American George Floyd by the police.
