The president of the Atlanta NAACP says the group wants Confederate symbols — including a giant carving at Stone Mountain Park — removed from all government-owned property and plans to pursue making those changes during the next legislative session.
Although the carving may be one of the most recognizable tributes to the Confederacy in the metro Atlanta area, the Atlanta NAACP's call to remove the flag and memorials from state property extends beyond that to all state property and land, Rose said.
"We'll be making a list as we get people from across the state to take pictures and send us locations of various monuments," Rose said, noting that not all tributes to the Confederacy on government property are historical sites.
Rev. Robert Shanklin of the Huntsville, Alabama, chapter of the NAACP told local news media that he wants the battle flag removed from the uniforms state troopers wear and the patrol vehicles they drive. The battle flag is part of the seal used by the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency and the governor's office.

How is this any different from ISIS destroying historical sites in the Middle East.
It is the same mind set!
It is a stupid mind set.

We're not simply talking about a flag in this thread/OP, we're talking about a HUGE carving in the side of a mountain.
