17. Tainted Mississippi's image? Mississippi still has the Confederate Battle Flag in their state flag!

 

This IS Mississippi! This IS their image! It's not tainted. It's the default.

They still sport the Confederate Battle Flag in their state flag.
The University of Mississippi has a sports team called the Ole Miss Rebels (not too long ago sporting a mascot named Colonel Reb, a Southern plantation owner).
The same old White supremacist order runs strongly in Mississippi just like it does throughout the South (I should know. I live there).

They still believe the South will rise again—which means correcting the 'wrongs' of the 1964 Civil Rights Act & the 1865 Civil War outcome.
The South has only been partially subdued thanks to Federal government override.
That old racist attitude did not die out & still runs very strongly in that region of the country.
And Mississippi's one of the most hardcore racist states.
