Video Kanye West Co-Opts Confederate Flag: Publicity Stunt Or Way to Prompt Debate? http://www.theskanner.com/entertainment/music/20429-kanye-west-coopts-confederate-flag-publicity-stunt-or-way-to-prompt-debate-2013-11-05 http://www.theskanner.com/entertainment/music/20429-kanye-west-coopts-confederate-flag-publicity-stunt-or-way-to-prompt-debate-2013-11-05
Experts say it's at least part publicity stunt, but there is potential for meaningful dialogue

The rapper thrust himself into the spotlight, yet again, with news that several pieces of merchandise from his Yeezus tour are emblazoned with the controversial Southern Cross. At his tour store in Los Angeles, a replica of the flag is affixed to the wall with red tape and adorned with the words, "I ain't coming down."
