In the aftermath of the racially motivated Charleston shooting, there has been debate over whether or not the Confederate flag that stands in front of the South Carolina Capitol building should remain. Although the many Republican candidates have refused to give a clear comment on whether or not they believe the flag should be taken down, there is a rising movement to replace the flag with a new symbol of southern pride: the McDonalds logo. A South Carolina local commented on the new flag suggestion, “I barely know what the Confederacy is, but I sure as hell know about McDonalds. I think it really represents what I stand for,” With bipartisan support pushing this new flag design through, the south is looking forward to advertising their widespread obesity instead of their widespread racism.
