Title: Amazon reviewers have a lot to say about the company’s Confederate flag merchandise

US retailers like Walmart, Kmart and Sears have pledged to stop selling Confederate flags and related paraphernalia, but major e-commerce platforms like Amazon and eBay have yet to pull products bearing the emblem.

A church shooting in Charleston, South Carolina that left nine black Americans dead has prompted a wave of protests over the presence of the flag, especially in the south where it is considered a symbol of southern pride for some and a potent reminder of the racism inherent in the region’s history for others.

South Carolina has said it will take the red banner with a blue X and stars down from its state capitol building. Lawmakers and protesters are calling for similar measures in other states.

Amazon and eBay, though, have remained silent on the issue. Neither company responded to e-mailed questions from Quartz about whether they will join the ban.

A search for “Confederate flag” on Amazon yields over 30,000 results—including bikinis, electronics, and home decor decorated with the flag. There’s a Confederate flag “mink” bedspread, antique-look flag iPhone covers, and even elaborate lampshades.

A search on eBay pulls up over 1,600 listings.

While these companies remain mum, Amazon customers have taken to the platform’s question and answer sections to express their thoughts. Regarding a polyester “Confederate Rebel Flag” sold by Rhode Island Novelty for $5.05, shoppers recently asked:

Some previous patrons of Rhode Island Novelty’s Confederate flags offered helpful answers:

Others told the reviewers to shut up.

There is no end to the ignorance in this country,and it is purposeful. People tend to believe for life what they are taught as children,and children in this country have been taught lies about slavery and the Confederacy since the 1860's.

The teachers teaching it believe this nonsense,too. All they know is what they have been taught,and teaching is where students go who lack the ability to do anything else.

There would be a demand to erect new statues. King was one of the greatest leftist revolutionary organizers in Americal history and has universal support in the left, from universal salesmanship, academia, government, and the media. His persona is the result of an ongoing propaganda campaign from which there is no hiding and no disagreement with it is allowed.

As part of a compromise in 2000, lawmakers agreed to remove the Confederate flag from the top of the Capitol dome and place it across the street while also adding a monument to African- Americans. But the legislation mandated that only a supermajority of the legislature could change that set-up going forward.

That's why it's important to establish national education standards in math, science and history.... To expunge these ignorant, outmoded and objectionable views from mainstream society. The rebellious Confederacy was a disgraceful blemish on our nation's history and should never be cast in a favorable light.

You are full of crap on this one,Willie. The states had a LEGAL RIGHT to secede from a VOLUNTARY union. In fact,there were pre-existing conditions that had to be met before they would all agree to join together.

It was the SOUTH that was objecting to changes made in the charter they had all agreed to that was the victim here.

However ;we are not the Taliban or the Islamic State . We don't destroy history or heritage regradless of how unpleasant and misguided and evil it was . We should instead never forget what the true reason of the rebellion was about ....slavery .

Treason is the 14th amendment.

Treason is the 14th amendment.

How could an amendment to the constitution be treason when the amendment becomes the constitutional law of the land ? By all means try to amend it if you don't like it . Also ;because SCOTUS has seriously misinterpreted the amendment doesn't mean the amendment is wrong. Codifying the rights of the newly-freed former slaves had to be done .

Who was charged with treason?

Yes the post-war United States had an overwhelming record of leniency concerning treason. They wanted to reunite the nation . They considered that more important than punishment .The traitor Jefferson Davis was not even tried for the crime.

Union Gen. George Thomas said in 1868; “The crime of treason might be covered with a counterfeit varnish of patriotism, so that the precipitators of the rebellion might go down in history hand-in-hand with the defenders of the (US) Government.” That appears to have come to pass.

We should also not forget the terms of the surrender at Appomattox . Grant allowed them to return to their homes "not to be disturbed by United States authority so long as they observe their paroles and the laws in force where they may reside." However ; Confederates like Nathan Bedford Forrest who led a post-war terrorist campaign and later was instrumental in the formation of the KKK should've been brought up on charges.

Have to agree Stone. Too many sweep thoughts of abortion under the rug, because it conflicts with their other beliefs / loyalty's.

I knew a guy, a self proclaimed "lay preacher", that claimed he was a "yellow dog" democrat, and also claimed to be a washed in the blood of Christ Christian. I told him that the two positions were incompatible, and that I would not insult yellow dogs by associating them with democrats. He got quite upset about that. I asked him how he, on Judgement Day would explain to God that he had belonged to, supported, and voted for a party that had promoted the murder of millions of innocent babies? He had no answer.

Apparently he placed a higher value on his loyalty to the demoncrap party, than to his purported Christian values

"Now the Confederate flag ;the flag of treason and rebellion against the United States"

Didn't the South call it the War of Secession? Didn't Southern states have the 10th amendment power to secede? I see nothing treasonous about it. There are many on this forum today calling for states to secede.

"The revolutionary right of secession is based on the Declaration of Independence and the philosophy of Thomas Jefferson and John Locke, that:

whenever any form of government becomes destructive of the ends for which it was established, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government ..."

---------------------------------

Lincoln wanted to stop the states from seceding and preserve the Union. He didn't give a FF about slavery.

"Lincoln replied in an open letter to Greeley. In the letter, Lincoln emphasized his primary goal: “I would save the Union. … If I could save the Union without freeing any slave, I would do it; and if could save it by freeing all the slaves, I would do it."

sucks losing the war. It was ratified by the required three-fourths of the states . You do recall that the Southern States had seceeded . Passing those amendments was a small price to pay for re- admission. Without the 13th and 14th Amendments we would've gone back to status quo antebellum.

My problem with the amendment has been the interpretation of it by activist courts .
