Old Stars and Bars may be headed to museums only.
It’s been the subject of so much debate ever since the American Civil War ended in 1865, and now the Confederate flag may soon be gone for good. After the horrific shootings in Charleston, South Carolina, last week in which nine African Americans were killed at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, there’ve been calls to banish this flag, which is a symbol of hatred and racism for many. Several politicians want it gone and even Walmart has pulled the flag from all merchandise. Will it soon be banned from being plastered on pickup trucks as well?
