In South Carolina, the aftermath of the Charleston shootings will be remembered not for rancor and division, but for a display of love and unity of purpose. On Friday, the Confederate battle flag was removed from the State House grounds.
The World Boxing Organization has stripped Mayweather of the welterweight world title he won after beating Manny Pacquiao in May. The WBO says that Mr. Mayweather failed to comply with the organization's rules.
To some on the pro-Confederate side, the flag is a symbol of the South, depicting valor and also representing opposition to political tyranny. But South Carolina may have the votes to remove the flag from State House grounds.
