Questlove on Confederate Flag: It's 'What That Flag Represented That I Wish Would Come Down'
After the Confederate flag was removed from the South Carolina Statehouse grounds in Columbia Friday, Questlove acknowledged the act as a success but said that's not enough.
The Roots drummer offered an opinion on Twitter, suggesting that after five decades of the flag flying at that location and much longer history to it, there's still a ways to go before all is well in America.
"It's the ideology principles of what that flag represented that i wish would 'come down,'" he wrote succinctly.
yes, the flag came down today. however. it's the ideology principles of what that flag represented that i wish would "come down"— Questlove Gomez (@questlove) July 10, 2015
