Amazon to Ban Confederate Flag Items Amid Spike in Sales

Amazon.com’s “Movers and Shakers” list of top items sold

*On Tuesday, Amazon followed other major retailers, including Wal-Mart and Sears, in banning sales of the Confederate flag, reports CNN.

Amazon had more than 29,000 listings for Confederate flags, posters, knives and other memorabilia.

ABC News reported that the top five biggest sales rank gainers on Amazon.com in the last 24 hours were all Confederate flag products, according to the website.

The top product, with a sales rank that increased 3,620 percent, is a Confederate flag that’s 3 feet by 5 feet and costs $1.80. The sales rank was 186th and is now No. 5, according to the website, which states that the rankings are updated hourly.

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.

  1. Amazon is showing their hypocrisy by baning the confederate flag but keep other offensive items such as the pan Africa flag (stands for black supremacy, and hate against whites) and the Nazi flag (stands for hate against jews) I have asked Amazon to close my account because of this, I will not support a company with a hypocritical policy, either ban all offensive items or don’t ban any
