Fox17 News in Nashville published this story Friday concerning South Cumberland Elementary School being asked to removed an inflammatory mural on the gym wall.  A Facebook comment on the story from a Cumberland county resident says the parent mentioned in the story doesn’t live in Cumberland County nor has a child in the school system here. Secondly, it appears the so-called ‘hanging’ is actually a person hanging by his jersey from the tree…not a deadly rope hanging.  Fox17 Story below.

 

{FOX17}Representatives from the Cumberland County School district said Confederate murals in an elementary school gym were removed on Friday.

A concerned parent reached out to Fox 17 News about the murals in the South Cumberland Elementary School gym. The elementary school’s mascot is the rebels.

Photos taken prior to the removal show a large mural of a Confederate flag. Another mural depicted a person wearing blue hanging from a rope in a tree while a person wearing red and holding a Confederate flag stood near by.
