Tennessee school removes Confederate flag, lynching murals

https://www.cnn.com/2018/03/05/us/hanging-confederate-mural/index.html

From the article:

A painting of a Confederate flag and a mural depicting a lynching have been removed from the walls of a Tennessee school gymnasium.

The mural showed a white man, dressed in blue, hanging from a rope tied to a tree branch. Another person was standing nearby, in a red jersey, and holding a Confederate flag.

The painting was intended to depict an athletic team rivalry.

1. Are you effing kidding me?

There was a lynching mural in a school? In 2018? The confederate flag is bad enough, but a lynching mural? OTOH, I am from TN, so I guess I'm not that surprised, except I'm sickened.

2. How the hell is it an elementary school has "The Rebels,"

with the former Ole Miss Col Reb as its mascot?
