Did Sports Impact the Mississippi State Flag Decision?


For the first time ever in our nation's history, a state has voted to change its state flag. The bill in Mississippi was passed by both the state Senate and state House of Representatives over the weekend. Flags are now being taken down and a committee will come together to design a new state flag that will not include the confederate icon on it.

We at Open Mike are curious, though. This comes shortly after NASCAR banned the confederate flag from their racetracks and after many sports figures have come out against racism. Do these events go hand in hand or are they merely a coincidence? You tell us in the poll below.
