Faith Hill Urges Mississippi Legislature To Change The State Flag

Faith Hill is showing her support for the change of the Mississippi state flag.

The 52-year-old singer, who was born in the Magnolia State, took to social media to call for the change.

“To the Mississippi legislature: It’s time to change the state flag,” Faith initially wrote, adding that she is “a proud MS girl and I love my home state. When I think of Mississippi, I think of my mom and dad, the church I grew up in, high school football, and where I fell in love with music.”

She adds, “Now, it is time for the world to meet the Mississippi of today and not the Mississippi of 1894 (when the MS legislature voted on the current flag). I understand many view the current flag as a symbol of heritage and Southern pride, but we have to realize that this flag is a direct symbol of terror for our black brothers and sisters.

“I urge the Mississippi legislature to vote tomorrow Friday, June 26 on ONE NEW FLAG, one that represents ALL of the citizens of Mississippi. #takeitdownMS #msleg,” Faith concluded.

The flag – which features both the United States flag and Confederate flag on it, has been in debate to change it as the Black Lives Matter movement gains more support.
