South Carolina Lowers Confederate Flag , And An Era Ends, at nytimes.com. I don’t want to get into the R vs. D argument, but here are some facts that the NY Times forgot to put in their article about the Confederate flag and South Carolina. The flag was raised in 1961 when Democrat Ernest Hollins was Governor of the State. By the way, the state house of representatives was made up of 124 democrats and 0 republicans. And another fact, the state senate was made up of 41 democrats and 0 republicans. Today the Confederate flag was taken down under a republican governor, with the state house and senate being made up of a majority of republicans. I need some help here. I was under the impression from the media and democrat politicians that republicans were the racists and democrats were the angels! I wish the media treated both parties like they treat the republican party. In other words I wish the media would just do their job!
