Fred Klonsky - racism and Confederate flag

HISTORY IS BEING MADE.

“The Illinois delegation voted support for my NBI 11. I will now offer it on the floor of the NEA RA.”

NBI 11:
The NEA RA directs the NEA to support, in ways it finds appropriate and effective, efforts to remove the Confederate flag and other symbols of the Confederacy from public schools and public spaces.

RATIONALE:

The use of the Confederate battle flag as a symbol has become widespread among racist and violent hate groups. The flag and similar Confederate symbols have no place at public schools or in public spaces.

    I’m here, as well, and it’s a messy event. There are friendly amendments, and one we are debating right now that Fred said was not friendly. It ended up passing. It still hasn’t been voted on after an hour.
