According to your posting of MLK's comments. What she did was not right,because the FLAG is not a LAW. the no tresspassing law in its current form does not oppress anyone.
And You do know I was joking about what could had legally been done to that woman by the guard.

An attention seeker is all this person is
Where has she been the last decade? Or 5 years ? Or year? Or six months?
15 min of fame is all she wanted. I have no respect for anyone like this
If she truly believes what she says then she wouldn't have waited until the flag was in such a poor lite
She a joke
In a YouGov poll released this week, there’s actually a split over what the Confederate flag means and what we should do with it. Some 40 percent of Americans approve of a rebel-flag vanity plate—in fact, more people are fine with it than are not.
And while you would think that there’s higher approval for the Confederate flag in the South, there isn’t: Approval of the license plate is at 49 percent in the West, compared with 41 percent in the South.
The various breakdowns (pdf) on this are a bit surreal, if not surprising, given today’s racial climate. More whites view the flag as a symbol of “Southern pride” (47 percent) than of racism, with 40 percent of whites also approving of its display.
African Americans, understandably, do not feel the same: Fifty-five percent of blacks see it as racism, and only 13 percent approve of its display.

When the results are broken down by party, 63 percent of Republicans view it as Southern pride, compared with only 28 percent of Democrats who do.
A majority of independents see it as good-ole’-boy Deep South pride, too.
These findings align with the results of a 2011 Pew Research poll, which showed that 58 percent of Americans have neither a positive nor a negative reaction to the Confederate flag. Only 29 percent of whites had a negative reaction, compared with 41 percent of African Americans. That number is still low, given that so many black people’s ancestors were subjected to unspeakable horrors under that flag and what it symbolized.
Worse yet: Thirty-six percent of whites and 33 percent of blacks in that Pew poll felt it was “appropriate to praise Confederate leaders.”
Earlier this week, social justice activist and progressive blogger Shaun King offered a “bounty” on the flag
