This story just made my day. A few weeks ago the city of Griffin, Georgia passed a proclamation declaring April Confederate History Month. The public debate included a racist outburst by former Griffin City Commissioner Larry Johnson. Well, last night the community came together and demanded that the city council rescind the proclamation, which they did.
I can’t think of a better way to commemorate Confederate History Month than having local communities in the former Confederacy strike down the proclamations that acknowledge it.
