A Mississippi lawmaker wants to withhold a quarter of the salary of any president of a university that refuses to fly the state flag. Mississippis failure to remove the Confederate imagery is a polarizing symbol that is a barrier to progress and improved understanding of our state, our university, and our people.

In place of the Mississippi flag, the Capitol now displays the states commemorative coin.
