>> MSU’s director of communications, Sid Salter, said that the university

>> As a result, Dr. Keenum has sent administrators, vice presidents, deans

>> Salter said “Several of the demands require data-driven responses. We

>> 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.”

>> 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.*
