S.C. Lawmakers to Debate Stars & Bars

South Carolina lawmakers will debate Monday whether to remove the Confederate flag from the state’s capitol grounds, after a deadly shooting at a historically black church in Charleston put the symbol of division in the spotlight. “You always want to think that today is better than yesterday—that we’re growing as a state, we’re growing as a country,” Gov. Nikki Haley told NBC’s Today show. “When something like this happens, you reflect, and you say: Have we changed enough?” The proposal to remove the flag appears to have enough votes to pass, but pro-Confederate robocalls reportedly targeted lawmakers over the weekend, and condemned the attack on “our values.”
