It finally happened. After 54 years of flying high at the South Carolina Capitol building, the Confederate Flag was removed on Friday morning — Just one day after Governor Nikki Haley signed the bill for its removal.

A crowd of hundreds chanted “U.S.A” and cries of “Thank you, Jesus” could be heard as uniformed highway patrol officers lowered the flag from a pole. The officers then handed the flag to one of the state’s two black Cabinet-level officials, Department of Public Safety Director Leroy Smith. The flag will be placed in an exhibit at a military museum a mile down the road.

This move comes after weeks of public out cry for the removal of the flag after nine Black churchgoers were killed by Dylann Roof at Emanuel AME in Charleston, South Carolina.

President Barack Obama tweeted about the flag removal calling it a “signal of good will and healing”.

Well, the revenge was sweet for Tisha, who returned the prank by texting Ash and alluding to the murder of Martin. Take a look…

Tisha better watch out! Now that she and Duane are set to divorce, someone may believe her.
