    I'm wondering if he said that to be PC - because if he said otherwise.....

    So does that mean other flags - are not to be displayed at Washington & Lee?

    For example: This one

    Are Students allowed to hang a CSA flag in their personal room? If not than the Pan-Africa flag should not be allowed.

    Many people complain that the CSA flag stood fo slavery. Well, how many slaves came to America under the Stars and Stripes.

    Every time I hear the word "diversity" coming from an educational institution, it makes my skin crawl.

    It usually means they are doing something that doesn't make sense in an effort to make history more palatable and politically correct.

    History is what it is.

    The confederate battle flag is part of our history and nothing to be ashamed of...or threatened by.

    That being said, the article wasn't clear exactly what would replace them or in what kind of rotation. that's the other shoe. I'll wait for it to drop.

    Huh? What shoe dropping?

    The rebel flags are gone from the chapel. No flags are replacing them there.
    Borrowed authentic flags will be displayed behind glass as historical relics in the museum, where they belong.
