On the heels of the NORTH CHARLESTON, SC, Shooting Death of WALTER SCOTT by NORTH CHARLESTON POLICE Officer MICHAEL SLAGER, and the CHARLESTON CHURCH MASSACRE, during which 9 lives were taken by 21-year-old DYLANN ROOF at the EMANUEL AME CHURCH; the focus on race has now encompassed the Confederate flag, and it's removal has made headline news around the globe.

A crowd of hundreds erupted in cheers, and sang farewell songs ("Na Na Na Na Hey Hey Hey Goodbye") as uniformed highway patrol officers lowered the flag from a pole next to a soldiers' monument.
 
President BARACK OBAMA tweeted
"South Carolina taking down the Confederate flag - a signal of good will and healing, and a meaningful step towards better future."
 
The officers handed the flag to one of the state's two black Cabinet-level officials, DEPARTMENT Of PUBLIC SAFETY Director LEROY SMITHwho had the flag taken to a nearby state military museum where it will be exhibited.

The symbolic removal happened one day after SOUTH CAROLINA Gov. NIKKI HALEY, who argued for the flag's removal after the Charleston Church Massacre, signed the bill calling for it to come down.

Going forward, the NAACP says this weekend, it will move to lift its 15-year economic boycott against South Carolina during their national convention in PHILADELPHIA, PA.
