The Confederate Flag's Place in Real Life and Second Life
In recent days, the Confederate flag from the American Civil War has been in the news. In the wake of people demanding it be taken down from South Carolina's state capitol building, people have been calling for it's removal elsewhere, and it has been removed from sale in some stores. As it turns out, Confederate-themed items are available in Second Life, including for sale in Marketplace. Following a call by someone in SL media for Linden Lab to ban these items, I contacted someone in the Civil War Roleplay sim in Dakota to talk about the matter. She had a few things to say about it.
