Sally Green, the bank’s first vice president and chief operating officer, said earlier this week, “We are flying the pride flag as an example of our commitment to the values of acceptance and inclusion.”The two flags look great together. Bigots like Bob Marshall are merely marking themselves down for posterity as the enemies of civil rights that they are. Marshall and his ilk will join the pro-slavery, pro-segregation, massive resistance, and racist Virginians of the past in the commonwealth's rogues gallery of villains.
The flag is being flown at the request of PRISM, a Richmond Fed group representing gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender employees and allies.

Congratulations to the Richmond Federal Reserve and PRISM!
Great work by the Richmond Federal Reserve and PRISM--their display of the "Pride" or "Rainbow" flag is a powerful message that bigotry and intolerance are no longer acceptable. From the Times Dispatch.
