Amazon, Etsy to Ban Confederate Flag Merchandise, Joining Walmart, eBay Jun 23, 2015,
Below is an excerpt from this titled article, I'd be willing to bet that the above businesses could care less about the feelings toward the flag. They are afraid those against the flag will call for boycotts against these businesses if they continue to sell them. IT'S ALL ABOUT THE ALMIGHTY DOLLAR !!!
Kerry McCoy, founder and president of FlagandBanner.com, based in Arkansas, told ABC News that sales of Confederate flags through her business in Little Rock, Arkansas, were "so-so" yesterday, but things have changed rapidly since Walmart, Sears, Kmart and additional politicians have called for their ban.
"We are getting a lot of calls for them and not for hate purposes but rather in fear that they will somehow become unavailable in the near future," McCoy said.
While Walmart, eBay, Kmart and Sears have announced the ban of Confederate flag products, McCoy said she will continue to sell all flags through her business in Arkansas as long as it is legal.
"We represent all Americans. It is not the place of Arkansas’ FlagandBanner.com to judge its customers. We are providers not politicians," she said. "History buffs and re-enacters love the Civil War for its contributions to our country. As long as it is lawful we will represent all Americans at FlagandBanner.com, which include but not limited to Gay Pride, Tea Party, Democrats, Republicans, Native Americans, etc."
