South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley in a Monday, June 22 afternoon press conference says the Confederate flag should be removed from the grounds of the state capitol. Haley by calling for the divisive symbol removal, reverses her initial position to keep the flag, amid growing calls for it to be removed.
“Today we are here in a moment of unity in our state, without ill will, to say it’s time to move the flag from the Capitol grounds,” Haley said to applause. “My hope is that by removing a symbol that divides us, we can move forward in harmony and honor the nine blessed souls that are now in heaven,” she said. 
Governor Haley change on the Confederate Flag comes after nine African-American affiliated African Methodist Episcopal (AME) church members were gunned down by confessed murderer 21 year old Dylann Roof. One of the AME church members killed included South Carolina State Senator and Rev. Clementa Pinckney.
