Roland Martin: Confederate Flag Is A Hate Symbol, Has No Place Flying Over Any State Capitol

Roland Martin, host of TV One’s NewsOne Now appeared on OutFront to discuss the Charleston massacre and renewed calls to remove the confederate flag from the grounds of South Carolina’s state capitol.

Martin told Erin Burnett host of OutFront the Confederate flag “is a hate symbol that has no place over any state capitol — flying on any grounds anywhere in America.”

    Just remember ALL of the Ferguson looting, rioting and ALL of the Baltimore looting, rioting were HATE crimes.

    This is NOTHING to do with the 4 little girls killed 50 years ago.

    This has to do with Al Sharpton, Barack Obama and Dylan all wanting to start a civil war.
    And if the Confederate Flag is a hate symbol why do you all keep voting Democrat. Democrats were confederates, Democrats hate blacks, Democrats kept you from voting, Democrats are the Klu Klux Klan. Democrats want to keep you as dependent slaves.

      Because they switched parties dumb as the current republicans are the Democrats back then! Still with its racist owner’s! You dumb buck! Learn your history

      • Tyler Boyd

        Wrong – Democrats want to be the massa’s. They dole out the gifts.
        I do KNOW my history. My grandmother was BLACK.
        Learn YOUR history.
        Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Republican with the same beautiful values as Ben Carson. MLK was an amazing man. I loved him as a child and I love him know.
        Racism thrives in the black community. Poverty thrives by their choice in the black community because of their choice to choose hatred, racism, lust.
        Learn your history. The Democrats have NOT changed parties they just continued to manipulate you. It took amazing WHITEs to defend you and your honor. They lost their lives, limbs, girlfriends who didn’t know if they would return. They made the decision as I have to defend your honor.
        This beautiful church knows the WAY of Jesus. If you can’t feel the beautiful world wide energy that is lighting the world with LOVE – you are NOT a Christian.
        I do know my history in great detail. I have it more than 500 years back. Unlike Michelle Obama, there was NOT a single slave owner.
        If you attack a white because of any unjustified perceived thought they had slaves in their history then you MUST attack Michelle Obama because she has documented slave owners in her background.
        And history lesson, there were both white and black slaves and the white slaves had children with the black slaves – any of you have red hair? Then you are part Irish. They did this to keep the white slaves from running off.
        Democrats are still the KKK they used to wear sheets now they cover your eyes with sheets.
        Become literate.

          Whoa! You dishonor your grandmother!

      The voting situation for blacks is fluid and not static! News flash! Let me let you in on a black secret. The litmus test that blacks use for voting is that they don’t vote for the party that the KKK supports. Today that would be the right wing nuts and tea party. Hope this helps you. Thanks

      • Tyler Boyd

        YOU ARE SO WRONG. ANYTIME, ANYONE is giving you handouts and determining what YOU should have is a SLAVE holder.

        • Chappyricky

          Hmmm! Where did that come from, Fox or Rush Limbaugh?

          • Seth Leonard

            LOL. ACADEMY OF IDIOTS AND SPECIAL KIND OF STUPID PEOPLE! Like the poor old woman Mc Cain had to school when he was running for president. Sad

        Not a chance! But thanks for trying to inform the gentleman…

    • Chappyricky

      Tyler, What does that have to do with the flag? Well, I’ll answer for you. You just made a good argument to take down the flag. You said it is representative of the Democrats and the KKK. Therefore your argument is just. I agree with you, it is a flag of hatred. Paradigm shift of the Political Parties. Look it up.

    The Word of God teaches us that out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. Graham exposed himself as a separatist when making the statement “this is who we are in SC” when defending his confederate flag. He obviously wasn’t referring to or including the numerous black residents of SC whose heritage is overlooked. It was my understanding that he was suppose to be representing all of the constituents of his state. I guess he only represents the whites whose heritage he shares. He blatantly disregards the black heritage by making such a segregationist statement as this. http://www.cnn.com/videos/us/2015/06/19/lindsey-graham-confederate-flag-new-day.cnn

      But you must take the brain cells in the heart (bet you didn’t know that the heart also has brain cells) and create congruence between both. It is YOUR responsibility to change this congruence by connecting your heart brain cells and the organ in your head’s brain cells. WE don’t disregard your history – but realize at that time you were only 1% of the nation. So ONE white disregards. How many blacks disregard the truth?? As MLK said – it starts with you.

    • Chappyricky

      Great point!

        This is why they won’t have a president for a while. Their candidates appeal to the idiots that they feel will vote for them. Things like all minorities are on food stamps and welfare. Dry and stale talking points. News flash. There over 300 million Americans of which there are only 40 million blacks and 25 million Latinos. If the total number of blacks and Latinos were on public assistance it would not be equal to the number of whites that are welfare. Oh, and they are not slaves nor descendants of slaves. Take the log out of your eye before you try to take the speck out of your brothers eye. Hypocrites blinded by hate. So you know. I am not on public assistance however I assist those that are. A lot of them include low ranking service members sent to war by republicans that depise them because they are receiving so called government handouts. Remember the wounded warriors whatever flavor they come in.

    we DO need to address race.
    Obama, Sharpton, THE MEDIA and DYLAN ALL want civil war.
    I don’t.
    Neither does this Charleston Church. This was ONE idiot young man and 9 deaths of such a tremendous spiritual energy they alone have shifted the world. If you CAN’T feel you are NOT LIVING the way of JESUS. The 9 and this church are amazing. They love, they don’t know me, they don’t know you and yet they CHOOSE LOVE. CHOOSE LOVE.
    YOU, Roland Martin along with Obama, Sharpton, other media and DYLAN are equally full of hate, hatred, racism and race baiting AND WANT TO START A CIVIL WAR. I DON’T.
    I don’t want to fight. Dylans comments were sad but a bit of truth – Blacks are more likely to BE racist, to choose racism, to loot and riot and target whites with hate crimes as they did in extremely large numbers in Ferguson and Baltimore and Mckinney. THOSE were hate crimes. Blacks are far more likely to kill whites than the reverse. Martin Luther King was a Republican. Those who wanted to KEEP slavery were Democrats. Those that kept blacks from voting were Democrats. Those involved with and started the Klu Klux Klan were Democrats. More than likely the person who murdered Martin Luther King, Jr., a REPUBLICAN, was an idiot Democrat. YOU MUST LOVE SLAVERY BECAUSE YOU KEEP VOTING FOR IT.
    Also look at the slave and how Michelle Obama wants to dress her slave in the pictures of her daughters and Michelle (in by the way the MOST unattractive style of clothes they could possibly have selected – no wonder the girls never smiled, they knew they were horrible clothes). However, getting back to the slave in the picture with very plain clothes. Michelle Obama’s family were slave owners please remember to attack HER as you attack me who can document my history back more than 500 years NEVER owned slaves. Yet you blame my lighter skin. White and Blacks were held as slaves by less than 1% of the United States. There are more slaves in Africa than any other continent. Slaves in Africa are document in the Bible.
    RACISM either starts with as you are race baiting or it ends with you. Which do you choose.
    I choose LOVE. Get on board. STOP YOUR RACISM NOW,

    KKK Flies this flag as a symbol supremacy. After the Civil War the KKK was born and they chose this flag as a representation of the rebirth of a nation, the rise of the south. This flag as flown at lynching’s of those who appose the KKK; Black, White or Jew.

    I am from Charleston, S.C. and left because of a racial incident in 1989. I moved to Atlanta. I have worked as a victims advocate and write and direct plays for several non-profit causes. Moore’s Ford Bridge lynching Re-enactment has been a labor of love for me. The last unsolved mass lynching in US history, Dorothy(7 months pregnant)and Roger Malcolm, Mae Murray and George Dorsey all under 30 were killed by the Klan in 1946 and even though over 30 men participated no one was ever charged. The July event keeps the memory of these victims alive. This was a racial hate crime and just like the Charleston victims they need justice. There are perpetrators still alive.
