here are some excerpts from the article, Confederate Flag Exhibit Ignites Uproar.
A Confederate flag hung from a noose in a display titled "The Proper Way to Hang a Confederate Flag" has upset visitors to a museum in Tallahassee, Fla.
The museum, however, announced Friday it is standing by Sims' work, on display since Feb. 26, because it wants to inspire dialogue in the community about a symbol that engenders a diversity of strong responses.
Florida statutes say it's unlawful to "deface, defile or contemptuously abuse" the Confederate flag, but say it's also illegal to prevent the display of the flag "for decorative or patriotic purposes."
"I think that we're well within the statute," Barber said.
it's comforting to know that the museum is standing by his work. at least they aren't advocating censorship.
ps: am I the only idiot who didn't know about the florida confederate flag law? ah, the annihilation of our civil rights in action. nicely done, fla. nicely done.
support the child's work!
