    Confederate Flag protest


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     KennyHolston shot these photos Tuesday night in front of the South Carolina State House. "I'm saddened by the recent murders in Charleston, and it's a shame that the killer used the Confederate battle flag as a symobl of hate. I understand the flag holds significant historical value, I just wish it wasn't associated with so much negativity."
    - dsashin, CNN iReport producer

    Residents of Columbia, S.C. and surrounding areas gathered in front of the Columbia State House building to protest the removal of the Confederate battle flag which currently flies in front of the building, June 23, 2015, Columbia, S.C. The call for the removal of the flag came after nine African American’s were murdered during bible study by Dylann Roof, at a historical church in Charleston, S.C. Images of Roof surfaced after his arrest of himbrandishing the Confederate flag, along with a hate-filled manifesto expressing white supremacist views. South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley called for the removal of the flag from State House grounds less than a week after the shootings. (Photos by Kenny Holston)
