Okay, so I know that Georgia isn’t the most progressive state; however, there are some things going on here that I find to be RIDICULOUS.
According to this article on MSNBC.com, some Georgia lawmakers signed off on a plan to create a Confederate Heritage Month. Under this plan, the month of April would be designated as Confederate History and Heritage Month in an attempt to honor the memory of the Confederacy as well as “all those millions of its citizens of various races and ethnic groups and religions who contributed in sundry and myriad ways to the cause of Southern Independence.”
Oh really? The cause of Southern Independence? Sounds like a ridiculous amount of BS to me. Especially when you think about how Georgia lawmakers didn’t seem to excited or willing to issue an apology for slavery.
