Yesterday, there was a Martin Luther King Jr. Day rally outside of the State House in Columbia, SC. All three of the Democratic Presidential Candidates were there and each gave a speech. Accross the street from the rally, a group of confederate flag supporters were demonstrating their cause throughout the whole event. I spoke to two of them to try and understand their position.
Back at Union College (no pun intended) I read a book about how the south still has not let go of the Civil War. I had never experienced that first-hand until yesterday.
