Lt. Gen. John Rosa is a gentleman and an overly polite one to put up with Rev. Al Sharpton, who wants an old Confederate Navy flag removed from the campus chapel. Why? Sharpton said, “I don’t know how people can pray with a symbol of hate and white supremacy and man’s inhumanity to man in a chapel.”

Wow! Looks bad for another poor innocent flag. I wonder how Gen. Douglas MacArthur or Gen. George Patton would have handled the situation.

Lastly, if the Navy flag goes, then our own Old Glory should also go because over the years it has waved longer and higher during the time of slavery than any other American flags.
