Confederate Statues Across US Are Being Replaced With White Flags of Surrender

Riding a wave of anti-racism that has swept the US, governors across the country have begun the removal of Confederate statues, monuments, and plaques. Virginia’s Governor Ralph Northam says that he and several other governors plan to replace the memorials with white flags commemorating the South’s surrender.

“We’ll be taking down all Confederate memorials because, simply put, we don’t celebrate racists and losers in Virginia,” Northam stated. “It’s important to remember what really happened in history and a white flag serves this purpose perfectly.”
