*Los Angeles civil rights activist Najee Ali executive director of Project Islamic Hope and a coalition of African American activists will hold a confederate flag burning ceremony and rally in support of the call by South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley that the Confederate flag be removed from the grounds of the State Capitol.
“Our coalition of activists not only support the call by Governor Haley we’re taking it a step further by burning the Confederate flag in memory of all our slain ancestors who have been murdered by those who have fought under this flag and by those who continue to be inspired to kill African Americans. This flag represents the worst in America. It’s a symbol of racial hated and racial terrorism. The only flag Americans should be united and supporting is the American flag, so we consider ourselves patriots for burning a confederate flag which symbol has been responsible for so much death and suffering by African Americans in our country”
