Jeb Bush Says Confederate Flag a 'Racist' Symbol

Jeb Bush said Monday that the Confederate flag has become a "racist" symbol and applauded efforts to remove the flag outside the South Carolina State Capitol after a racially motivated church shooting.
In his first campaign stop in South Carolina since the deadly shooting that killed nine at AME Emanuel Church in Charleston, Bush recalled how he "decided to do something politically incorrect" and removed the flags outside the Florida state house when he was governor in 2001.
The Republican presidential candidate said during a campaign stop at a pharmaceutical manufacturing plant, "The symbols were racist."
