Rhode Island moves to change state's official name due to slavery connotations

www.cbsnews.com

The state of Rhode Island is moving to change its official name — "The State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations" — due to its connection to slavery.  Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo signed an executive order on Monday to change what appears on government documents, and the state's legislature is moving forward with a bill to alter the name entirely.

"Many of the State's residents find it painful that a word so closely associated with slavery should appear in the official name of the State," Raimondo wrote. "The pain that this association causes to some of our residents should be of concern to all Rhode Islanders and we should do everything in our power to ensure that all communities can take pride in our State."

The order will shorten the name to "Rhode Island" in official communications from the governor's office, including executive orders and citations, and will also change the state's website. It will also remove the word "plantations" from all state agency websites and official correspondence, effective "as soon as practicable."

"Rhode Island was founded on the principles of acceptance and tolerance, and our state's name – and actions – should reflect those values," Raimondo tweeted Monday.

Over 7,300 people have signed a petition supporting the name change.

The Rhode Island Senate unanimously called for a statewide vote on the name change last week after the bill was introduced in part by the state's only Black senator, Harold Metts. The state legislature signaled it will move forward with the referendum.

"Whatever the history of the term is in Rhode Island, it is an unnecessary and painful reminder of our nation's racist past," Metts, who traces his lineage on his mother's side to the Speck Plantation near Charlottesville, Virginia, said in a statement. "It is a hurtful term to so many of us."

Voters will need to choose to amend the Rhode Island Constitution in November before the state's official name can be permanently changed.

This isn't the first time the state has attempted to change its name: When the state tried in 2010, 78% of voters opposed the removal of "Providence Plantations." But Metts said he has renewed hope.

"A decade has passed since the public was asked this question. Attitudes may have changed substantially, even in the past few years — and even in the past few weeks," Metts said in a statement. "Whatever the meaning of the term 'plantations' in the context of Rhode Island's history, it carries a horrific connotation when considering the tragic and racist history of our nation."

Mississippi governor says he will sign bill, if it passes, to change 'divisive' state flag

"The argument over the 1894 flag has become as divisive as the flag itself and it’s time to end it," Gov. Tate Reeves said in a tweet Saturday.

The governor of Mississippi announced that if the state legislature votes to remove the Confederate battle emblem from the state flag, he will sign the bill.


Gov. Tate Reeves' statement comes as Mississippi lawmakers consider a measure on the flag as early as Saturday.

"The legislature has been deadlocked for days as it considers a new state flag. The argument over the 1894 flag has become as divisive as the flag itself and it’s time to end it. If they send me a bill this weekend, I will sign it," Reeves said in a tweet Saturday morning.

In a first, key step toward possible passage of that bill, the state's House of Representatives voted 85-34 on Saturday to suspend rules and allow debate on the measure.

The House then adjourned until Sunday afternoon when debate on the flag bill is expected to begin.

Mississippi is the last state in the nation to feature the Confederate emblem on its flag, and Reeves has previously said any change to the flag should come through a popular vote rather than the legislature.

He acknowledged in a Facebook post on Thursday, however, that vetoing such legislation would be “pointless.”

But he said in his tweet Saturday that the state will still need to bring people together around a flag change, even if the move comes from legislation rather than a popular vote.

"We should not be under any illusion that a vote in the Capitol is the end of what must be done — the job before us to bring the state together and I intend to work night and day to do it," Reeves said in his tweet. "We must find a way to come together. To heal our wounds, to forgive, to resolve that a page has been turned, to trust each other. With God's help, we can."

State Rep. Robert Johnson III, the Democratic leader of the state House of Representatives, told NBC News Friday that all the votes needed to change the flag “appear to be there."

“Supporters of a flag change worked through the night to secure the remaining votes necessary for a successful vote to change the state flag," Johnson said. "The votes to make that change are there in the House and appear to be there in the Senate. There very well may be a first step taken today in the House by passing a rules suspension to take up a bill to remove the current state flag."

The current flag was first adopted in 1894 and features red, white and blue stripes with the Confederate battle emblem in the corner. Proposals to change the flag have repeatedly come up in the statehouse, but have always died. In 2001, Mississippi voters were given a chance to change the flag through a public referendum, and 64 percent chose not to.
