Following voting by both student and faculty bodies, the University of Mississippi decides to remove the lone state flag on its campus on account of the banner's Confederate imagery.
FOX News Radio's Eben Brown reports:
The state flag of Mississippi, with its Confederate canton, no longer flies at Ole Miss... Votes from the student and faculty senates say the flag doesn't make everyone feel welcome.
The University's Interim Chancellor Morris Stocks gave a heads up to elected officials...
(Stocks) "No one tried to convince us not to do it. Not everyone is in full agreement with what we've done."
And that might include Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant, who tells FOX News the current flag was voted on in 2001 and ought to be displayed... Chancellor Stocks however, says they're not any under legal obligation to do so.
