University students discuss Mississippi flag at campus forum

COLUMBUS — Students and members of the community gathered at a Mississippi University for Women forum to discuss the state’s flag.

The Commercial Dispatch reports Monday’s forum was put together by the school’s Student Government Association.

Following a brief lecture on the history of Mississippi’s state flags, students were given the chance to ask questions about its current flag.

Some questioned why the flag contains the emblem of the Confederate, while others wondered why the school still flies the flag even after several universities across Mississippi have removed it.

University president Jim Borsig told students that the flag wasn’t going anywhere for now. Borsig said though he thinks the flag should be changed, he wants students to make up their own minds about it.
