A live television interview with two Mississippi lawmakers was tainted by a man who insisted on flying the states flag with a Confederate emblem in the background.
Just hours after Mississippis legislature voted to allow the Confederate battle emblem to be removed from the state flag, MSNBC spoke to state House Minority Leader Robert Johnson III.
As Johnson spoke, a man behind him positioned the Mississippi flag so that the Confederate battle emblem could be seen above the Black lawmakers head.
The flag is just a beginning, Johnson said, motioning to Mississippis Republican Speaker of the House Philip Gunn, who was also in the live shot.

Bias against women driven by people who think it doesnt exist: study

The study, which comes after a United Nations report said around 90 percent of people globally hold some prejudice against women, found that bias persists even when female representation in a particular field increases.
Quite critically, this research demonstrates that managers who think bias is no longer an issue in their profession are, perhaps ironically, the key drivers of bias, the authors said.
Researchers looked at veterinary medicine a profession that used to be dominated by men but now has a substantial female workforce.
