Hello and Good Evening Everyone,
It is my understanding that any merchandise with the Confederate flag on it are being banned from being sold by various retail giants such as Walmart, Amazon and Ebay just to name a few. This decision derives from concern that racism is associated with the Confederate flag. I assume such a conclusion comes from a past historical event or events in which the Confederate flag was used in conjunction with violent acts to suppress the life and growth of African-Americans. From a positive side, I also have heard the argument that the Confederate flag is a symbol of pride and heritage of southern states and nothing more. I am not much of a history buff, so, it is hard for me to come up historical events and dates to back up these personal conclusions.
While I realize there are probably volumes of information on this topic as it is talked about within blogs and social media networks, I am still interested in knowing what everyone else thinks about the decision to ban any merchandising which has the Confederate flag
