Take Down the Confederate Flag—Now

“Moral cowardice requires choice and action. It demands that
its adherents repeatedly look away, that they favor the fanciful over
the plain, myth over history, the dream over the real. Here is another
choice.

“Take down the flag. Take it down now.

“Put it in a museum. Inscribe beneath it the years 1861–2015.
Move forward. Abandon this charlatanism. Drive out this cult of death
and chains. Save your lovely souls. Move forward. Do it now.”
Ta-Nehisi Coates
