Mississippi Republican Introduces Separate But Equal Flag Bill

From WAPT: 

Republican House Speaker Pro Tempore Greg Snowden is proposing that the state have two flags: one with the Confederate emblem, which currently represents Mississippi, and another flag without the emblem.
Yes, you read this correctly. A leader in the Republican legislature is introducing a bill to fly two flags at the same time, acknowledging that our current confederate battle flag is offensive, but not enough to take it down.

So instead, Snowden reached back into history for a compromise. Separate but equal flags will have to do.

Hmmm. Seems I've heard that "separate but equal" phrase before.

Did he say it's going to be 3/5 the size?

Sounds too stupid to be true.
