Stacey Abrams admits to burning Georgia flag on eve of final gubernatorial debate

Stacey Abrams, the Democrat who could be the first black woman to win a governor's seat in U.S. history, admitted Monday that she burned the state flag on the steps of the Georgia Capitol in 1992.

At the time, the state flag included a Confederate symbol.

Abrams, who is black, appeared in a photo in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution in June 1992 alongside other students burning the flag at the state Capitol.

Trash will elect trash, that is the liberal way.

Not defending her actions, then or now.

As we know, desegregation was unpopular in many states. From what I've read, Georgia added the Stars and Bars to the state flag in the 50s as kind of a rear guard action. It was contentious then, and later removed.

She's running on her race and gender rather than on accomplishments, so her actions then are a resume enhancer to her today, at least in the eyes of her supporters.

Georgia deserves better.

Awww... Yes those poor deprived Africono's have been treated so poorly.

Shame on the state of Georia for giving them free school, free lunch and now breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Shame on them for giving free housing, free welfare, free EBT cards, free healthcare.

Shame on them for giving blacks first priority to jobs and colleges.

Must be a sad life being a deprived black in this country when whites have to get to the back of the line. Shame on Georgia and America.

733 yeah you are sooooo right. We all should be forced to stand for the flag, say the pledge of allegiance, and always scream out our praises to the government. To hell with that whole constitution thingy.

Georgia has a wonderful history with blacks. Just ask the 600 men and women who were lynched. The unwilling participants of the Tuskegee syphilis study. The generations of humans born into slavery. If you think that some blocks of government cheese heal these wounds you are wrong.
