(WJW) – In an op-ed to celebrate Juneteenth, Macy Gray says America needs a new flag.
The Grammy Award-winning singer, from Canton, Ohio, wrote in the MarketWatch article Thursday that the US flag had been “hijacked as a code for a specific belief.”
“Like the Confederate, he is tattered, dated, divisive and incorrect. It no longer represents democracy and freedom. He no longer represents ALL of us. It’s not fair to have to honor it. It’s time for a new flag, ”said Gray.
She suggested that two stars be added to include DC and Puerto Rico. In the piece MarketWatch, the singer also suggested that the colors be changed. “What if the stars were ALL of us – your skin tone and mine – like the melanin scale?” ” she wrote.
There were reactions both for and against his idea. A person tweeted, “Now the flag is too white?” ! Maybe Macy Gray needs some time with our military to get some perspective.
Another person saidIronic, those who speak out against Macy Gray are the same ones who applaud the insurgents who beat the Capitol Police with American flags.
The article appeared on the same day that President Joe Biden signed a bill making June 19 – June 19 – a national holiday.
