provided by takeastandmsu.weebly.com Yesterday, April 13, Mississippi State 
students appeared for a sit-in protest at Lee Hall from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 
p.m. The nature of the protest was to ask MSU president, Mark Keenum, to 
take down the state flag due to the Confederate emblem. 

Mississippi State University is the remaining major public university in 
the state that still flies the state flag after the University of 
Mississippi and the University of Southern Mississippi both removed the 
flag from the campuses.

The group that organized the sit-in protest is self-called “Lucky 7,” and 
it has called on MSU president Mark Keenum to remove the state flag from 
the campus by May 1, 2016, according to its list of 10 demands provided on 
its website that the group created Tuesday, April 12:

MSU’s director of communications, Sid Salter, said that the university 
received the list of 10 demands late Monday in an anonymous email.

As a result, Dr. Keenum has sent administrators, vice presidents, deans and 
directors throughout the university the demands which might be related to 
their areas of responsibility with instructions to vet them and to report 
back to him on anything that they uncover.

Salter said “Several of the demands require data-driven responses. We will 
need to analyze and crunch the numbers, and as soon as this is completed an 
evaluation will be done. We have been asked how long this will take. I do 
not anticipate that being very long.”

This organization also wrote a letter to MSU President Keenum as provided 
on its website. In the letter, the students within the organization wrote: 
“The University of Mississippi and the University of Southern Mississippi 
have heard their students’ outcry against this hateful flag and we demand 
that the voices of Mississippi State University students be heard as well.”

Salter noted that Keenum has sent letters to Governor Phil Bryant, 
Lieutenant Governor Tate Reeves and House Speaker Philip Gunn to express 
his support for changing the state flag. The letters can be viewed by

<http://hottytoddy.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/Letter-to-Philip-Gunn-Flag-Issue-3.24.16.pdf>

Keenum also issued a statement to the students: 

*As President of Mississippi State University and as an individual, I have 
consistently supported changing the state flag of Mississippi because I 
believe it is the right thing to do.*

* This issue is important to me. It is important for the future of my 
children and for the children of so many of my fellow citizens in 
Mississippi. To that end, I have promoted the principled efforts by our MSU 
Faculty Senate and our MSU Student Senate to support flag change and shared 
those efforts with the state’s political leadership. Since the atrocities 
in South Carolina last year, I have supported changing Mississippi’s state 
flag. That’s what I have said to students, faculty and staff on this 
campus. That’s what I repeat once again today. But I want to be clear. 
Taking the state flag down arbitrarily is a symbolic gesture that 
accomplishes nothing toward actually changing the state flag to something 
that everyone can support and feel good about. I support real flag change 
and I think I can best help accomplish that by working within the system to 
bring about that change. That I have done. That I will continue to do. 
Students, I hear your concerns. I feel your protests, and I profoundly 
admire the courage you demonstrate in standing up for your principles and 
your beliefs. *

*While we may well have different views on tactics, strategies and timing, 
rest assured that we share a common goal of uniting Mississippians behind a 
new state flag that can inspire all of us and be a source of universal hope 
and pride. I pledge to continue to work tirelessly toward that goal.*
