mputnal, Hold up...this doesn't have anything to do with how well (or not) blacks are represented in SoWal. I'm not sure that this board is totally representative of folks who want that flag removed but the Uhlfelder's (who created this issue) are from SoWal and the majority of people who spoke at the BCC meeting are also from SoWal as are most of the other critics. I believe that the NAACP was lured into a false sense of "you're welcome in SoWal" by the "remove it crowd" and they totally did not expect the reception they received. I think a real injustice was done because of poor planning by the "remove it" folks. They (specifically the Uhlfelders) should have known and or planned that the "press conference"/"protest gone bad" was inevitable because the NAACP expected to be allowed to park on PRIVATE PROPERTY and that wasn't the case. The fact that this "protest" occurred during the arrival of the Greater Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce Conference was way more than a mere coincidence.
