Charles Tyler, the President of the National Action Network, along with Maurice Scott, VP of the organization, are calling for the removal of the Confederate Flag from the Welcome to Mount Pleasant sign.
They sent a letter to Mount Pleasant Mayor, Linda Page.
They say that the State removed the flag, what they call “a symbol of hate” and that the Town of Mount Pleasant should do the same.
Currently, the flag is on the Son’s of Confederation portion of the sign. The National Action Network says that the Son’s of Confederation may keep its name but they are asking for the flag to be removed.
They are requesting a meeting with Mount Pleasant Mayor Linda Page to discuss the issue.
