Online petiton calls for banning Confederate flag sales at Lorain County Fair
Some Lorain County residents want to see the sale of the Confederate flag banned at the area's upcoming county fair.
The Elyria YWCA posted the "Ban Sales of the Confederate Flag at the Lorain County Fair" petition on Change.org earlier this week.
The group pointed out that the sales have been banned in several other states and major online retailers.
Here's an expert of their message:
We insist that the Lorain County Fair respect the dignity of Lorain County residents of all backgrounds and prohibit the sale of this shameful symbol of our nation's past. Until sales of the flag are banned, we will urge churches, schools, organizations, businesses, and individuals to unite against this symbol that divides us a county and a nation.
As of Thursday morning, more than 100 people have signed the petition.
