South Carolina Governor Calls for Removal of the Confederate Flag from State Grounds



South Carolina Governor, Nikki Haley, addressed the nation today at 4:00 pm today (June 22nd) concerning the waving of the Confederate Flag in the state's capital.

"Today we are here in a moment of unity to say it's time to move the flag from the capitol grounds," Haley said.

In her statement the Governor acknowledged that the Confederate Flag was tradition for some, but offensive for others and after last week's (June 17th) events where nine people were shot and killed in a mass shooting at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, the Confederate Flag has hung on state for 150 years.
