The Virginia Flaggers have now been on the ground for the past few weeks in Lexington protesting W&L’s decision to remove replica Confederate flags from the chapel and yet we have yet to see a single photograph of a student or alumni on the grounds calling for their return. “Plenty of support” indeed, just not the kind of support that matters.
On second thought, perhaps I misinterpreted their strategy. Perhaps the Virginia Flaggers are taking the long view and are preparing kids like these for admission to W&L. Once admitted they will bring about change from within. Brilliant.
