True. Ebay just announced they were going to stop selling it. Amazon said they will continue to sell confederate flag merchandise.

And I know some of us in this thread shop have shopped at amazon too. Sigh.



*sighs*  yup.

It is hard to avoid, but we have trillions of dollars in spending power. We can do more than just be aware and keep up the status quo


We can concentrate our spending power of course


But turning this around to look down on "other" blacks for such a systemic issue that you yourself can't avoid, it's not right

Yes, it IS a struggle to try to find places that aren't controlled by racist companies....otherwise how would be eat, sleep, have a roof over our heads? You might as well live on another planet. 

So if it came across that way, I apologize. When you know better, you do better. So this isn't a "Them vs. Us" but more like a "Us" trying to get "Them" to come on board with "Us". Our power is in numbers.



this.  I get that we don't "own a damn thing worth buying" but I feel like some folks don't even want to try to find an alternative.  Folks would rather ride the bus than boycott because who want's to be inconvenienced and walk.  Fucc the long game.

Calling people brothas and ngas that won't do better without including yourself

That's fake elitism .. Now I can go into detail but you already know why you aren't any better than the rest of "them", "us"

No one is stanning for walmart, we're stanning for the people you're calling brothas and ngas

We can't stop at the retailers, we should choke out the actual supplier, the manufacturer of these flags
