Confederate Flag Take Down at the South Carolina State Capitol – #KeepItDown

Bree Newsome scales flag pole to remove the Confederate flag flying on grounds of South Carolina State Capitol

Below you can watch the video footage taken this morning as creative artist, organizer and activist Bree Newsome takes down the Confederate Battle Flag at the South Carolina State Capitol.

When you watch, also be sure and check out the last 25 seconds... People insisted that only the state legislature could authorize the flag's take down. Fortunately, there are still many people who seek authority from, and ultimately answer to, a higher and more meaningful Source.

This is yet another powerful example of the kind of maladjustment to racism and white supremacy Dr. King consistently reminded us of, and a principle that more and more individuals and groups among our younger generations are breathing new life into.

I'm impressed with Bree Newsome's courageous example, and also appreciative of all the planning and support that had to have gone into this.

A couple of additional photos below the video clip.
