Macy Gray calls for American flag redesign in op-ed

In honor of June 19th becoming a federal holiday, Macy Gray is calling for the American flag to be redesigned. On June 17, the singer published an opinion piece on Market Clock lying your case for a more inclusive banner. “It no longer represents democracy and freedom,” he wrote. “He no longer represents ALL of us. It is not fair to be forced to honor him. It is time for a new flag.”

Macy described the uprising riots on Capitol Hill on January 6 as the turning point for the now “old-fashioned, divisive, and incorrect” American flag. For her, it became a replacement for the “tired” Confederate battle flag. She believes that a new flag should be representative of the diversity of the country. The 50 stars would be expanded to 52, including Washington dc and Puerto Rico, which have long requested statehood. “What if the stars were ALL of us colors, your skin tone and mine, like the melanin scale?”

Stripes, he postulated, should no longer be representative of purity and innocence. “America is great. It’s beautiful. Pure, it’s not. It’s broken and in pieces.” She suggested using off-white stripes instead. The other elements of the flag would remain. “The blue square represents vigilance and perseverance; and the red stripes represent courage. America is all of those things.”

The American flag has been altered several times since 1777. It is currently in its 27th iteration, after President Eisenhower adopted a new 50-star design to include Hawaii and Alaska in 1960. Much has changed in the last 62 years , and Macy said, “It’s time for a reboot, a transformation.” Look for a symbol “that represents all states and all of us.”
