NEW YORK BANS SALE, DISPLAY OF CONFEDERATE FLAG, OTHER HATE SYMBOLS ON STATE PROPERTY

Written by on December 17, 2020

THE CONFEDERATE FLAG AND OTHER HATE SYMBOLS WILL NOW HAVE A SMALLER FOOTPRINT IN THE EMPIRE STATE.

NEW YORK GOV. ANDREW CUOMO SIGNED A BILL INTO LAW THAT PROHIBITS THE SALE OR DISPLAY OF HATE SYMBOLS ON STATE-OWNED PUBLIC PROPERTY OR EVENTS, SUCH AS STATE FAIRS.

THE LAW, WHICH WENT INTO EFFECT IMMEDIATELY, SPECIFICALLY DEFINES THE TERM “SYMBOL OF HATE” TO BE “SYMBOLS OF WHITE SUPREMACIST AND NEO-NAZI IDEOLOGY OR THE BATTLE FLAG OF THE CONFEDERACY.”
