Rev. Al Sharpton Leads Boycott Against Kanye’s Confederacy

Kanye West’s new confederate flag merchandise has been bad for business. The latest naysayer of the gear is Al Sharpton’s National Action Network. The Los Angeles chapter of the organization is calling for a national boycott of the line. “Kanye West selling jackets with the Confederate flag on them is a disgrace and embarrassment,” said Rev. K.W. Tulloss, the NAN Los Angeles president.
