Following the tragic shooting in Charleston, SC last week which took the lives of nine innocent people, some of America’s leading merchants are pulling and banning merchandise with the Confederate flag off their shelves. By traditional standards the Confederate flag represents southern pride, but deeper than that it really stands for the Confederacy which was a group of states in support of slavery.
Retailers participating in the ban are Walmart, Amazon, eBay and Sears amid an intensifying national debate over the use of the controversial flag.The ban at retailers comes fresh off the heels of Gov. Nikki Haley announcing on Monday afternoon, in her support of removing the flag from the state capitol grounds.
Do you think the ban on the flag infringes on the freedom of civil liberties???
Considering it’s history and all that it represents, should America ban the confederate flag?
