Ask Amazon to please stop selling Confederate flag posters, T-Shirts, bumper stickers, and Confederate flags

Dear MoveOn member,

I'm Mark Whisler, a MoveOn member in Sacramento, CA, and I started a petition to Amazon President, Chief Executive Officer, and Chairman of the Board Jeffrey P. Bezos and Amazon Senior Vice President of Consumer Business Jeffrey A. Wilke, which says:

Symbols of hate and division have no place in American commerce. Respectfully, Amazon: It's time to stand up for what's right and stop selling Confederate flag posters, T-Shirts, bumper stickers, and flags, etc!

The Confederate flag is not a symbol of southern pride but rather a symbol of rebellion and racism. On the heels of the brutal killing of nine Black people in a South Carolina church by a racist terrorist, it's time to put that symbol of rebellion and racism behind us and move toward healing and a better United States of America!

Click here to add your name to this petition, and then pass it along to your friends.
