JACKSON, MISS– The survey group Mental Floss and Google teamed up together to figure out what people what to know about each state.
“Why does Mississippi have a confederate flag?” is what people google the most when they’re doing their research about the Magnolia state.
Many Mississippians are wondering the same thing, which is why there has been an ever-raging battle to change the state flag and remove the confederate symbol.
Neighboring states had more laid back and comical answers. People want to know why Louisiana folks “speak french” or why Tennessee has two time zones. Compare the other state to the Hospitality state on their website. http://mentalfloss.com/article/74931/what-people-are-wondering-about-your-state-according-google
