Lawmaker: Confederate sign on Mississippi flag a ‘disgrace’

Democratic Sen. David Jordan of Greenwood also says the flag is an embarrassment to more than 1 million African-Americans who make up nearly 38 percent of Mississippi’s population.

He spoke Thursday as more than 200 people rallied outside the state Capitol for lawmakers to redesign the 122-year-old flag. Mississippi is the last state with a banner featuring the rebel emblem – a red field topped by a blue X dotted by 13 white stars.
