    Good. They should remove it all. I am pretty sure this will hurt their sales though. The entire store is usually filled with welfare ridden, toothless rednecks buying store brand soda and junk food with their government issued food stamps.

      It boggles the mind how ignorant you are. I am proudly descended from Southern ancestors that have lived in, fought and died for, this country since BEFORE it was a country. I’m glad to shop at WalMart for the simple fact that YOU obviously don’t. I’m also not on welfare. I also display the 2nd Confederate Naval Jack under the US Flag. Always have, always will. You really should have studied more when [if] you went to school. This flag in question has NOTHING to do with racism or hatred, but heritage.
