BLP: North Carolina Chocolate Shop Incites Confederate Flag Burning

From Big League Politics:

A North Carolina chocolate shop is encouraging members of the public to burn the Confederate flag in response to a feud with a Sons of the Confederacy group.

Matthew Shepard, the owner of Matthew’s Chocolates in Hillsborough, North Carolina, claims to have been engaged in an ongoing dispute with a Sons of Confederate Veterans group. Shepard is unhappy that the group has been holding Confederate heritage events on the street outside of his shop, claiming that they’re there almost every Saturday.

In an attempt to rid the area of Confederate heritage groups, Shepard has offered free chocolate to anyone who burns a Confederate flag outside of his shop. Many liberals and individuals opposed to any and all Confederate memorabilia have expressed their support of his proposition.

The Sons of Confederate Veterans group have said that they reject “acts or ideologies of racial or religious bigotry,” and merely seek to honor the American South’s Confederate heritage. A community member affiliated with the group posted on Facebook about the feud, posing with Confederate flags right next to Shepard’s sign.
