COLUMBIA, S.C. — The NAACP’s president is urging South Carolina’s Gov. Nikki Haley to remove the Confederate flag that flies near her Statehouse office.

NAACP protests led in 2000 to the flag being moved from atop the Statehouse dome and from House and Senate chambers to a monument outside the Statehouse.

But NAACP head Benjamin Jealous said at the group’s annual convention in Los Angeles on Monday that “one of the most perplexing examples of the contradictions of this moment in history is that Nikki Haley, South Carolina’s first governor of color, continues to fly the Confederate Flag in front of her state’s capitol.”

Haley is the first South Carolina governor whose parents immigrated from India. Haley spokesman Rob Godfrey said Tuesday the governor has no plans to revisit an issue resolved long ago.
