VII. INTERNAL AFFAIRS

1. Resolution Abhorring the Confederate Battle Flag on State Flags

Approved

WHEREAS, the tyrannical evil symbolized in the Confederate Battle Flag is an abhorrence to all
Americans and decent people of this country, and indeed, the world and is an odious blight
upon the universe; and,

WHEREAS, African-Americans, had no voice, no consultation, no concurrence, no commonality,
not in fact nor in philosophy, in the vile conception of the Confederate Battle Flag or State Flags
containing the ugly symbol of idiotic white supremacy, racism and denigration; and,

WHEREAS, we adamantly reject the notion that African-Americans should accept this flag for
any stretch of imagination or approve its presence on the State Flags;

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the national Office of the NAACP and all units
commit their legal resources to the removal of the Confederate Flag from all public properties.
