It seems like you can buy anything on Amazon. But there are actually a large number of products that the company doesn't allow in its online store.
On Tuesday, Amazon followed other major retailers, including Wal-Mart (WMT) and Sears (SHLD), in banning sales of the Confederate flag. The Confederate flag has once again become toxic in the aftermath of a shooting last week at a historic black church in Charleston, South Carolina.

We can no longer handle the Confederate flag, but Obama can still say “nigger.”
But not a peep about him burning the American flag.
I didn’t think Amazon ever banned anything.
The Confed flag offends them but not the Democrap party: The party of the KKK, the party that voted against Civil rights act, the party where a KKK member filibustered the Civil rights act, the party that allow the KKK member to sit in Congress as late as 2010.
I need to open an online store that sells the CSA Battle Flag and CSA Naval Jack flag, I will be the only game in town with no competition!
If the rainbow flag was burned, my guess is that would be a hate crime. If the US flag is burned, that would be called an option.
Can they also ban that rainbow flag? It is very anti-christian.
And yet Nazi flags and costumes are easily available:
...and many more enlighten titles.
Much as I would like to think Zero was wrong for the n-word, I think he was essentially neither wrong nor right. It wasn’t like he used it in the positive. He was using it in a sentence merely to convey a point. His point was wrong and I loathe having to defend him. So I am not meaning this as a defense. But the truth is the truth. His use was more akin to seeing the word in a dictionary or a history book or even a dramatization. It was nothing more and making a big deal of it is silly and counter-productive, imo.
I didn’t find the n-word so troublesome but I did think I heard a chuckle as he said it. I am offended by the chuckle. The chuckle conveyed an attitude. The word was merely descriptive.
Just don’t sell SS Uniforms. Amazon has that covered:
Sounds like a business opportunity. Plenty of supply from Chinese suppliers = http://www.alibaba.com/trade/search?fsb=y&IndexArea=product_en&CatId=&SearchText=confederate+flag
Somebody is already on it - http://www.rebelstore.com/confederateflags.html
The question isn’t whether its polite to say “nigger” in public, its if you can still buy a Confederate battle flag on e-bay or Amazon.
