Governor not showing support for student-led initiative to remove state flag

Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant is not showing support for the student-led initiative to encourage the removal of the state flag from the University of Mississippi’s Oxford campus.

At a press conference for a separate issue Thursday, Bryant said while he did not know much about the resolution that passed by the student senate this week, he thought it was emotionally driven.

“I think college students react a lot emotionally,” Bryant said…

…”I don’t think (students) have any legal authority whatsoever to determine what the state flag is and where it flies, particularly over public buildings,” Bryant said.
