Barneys department store has been in the news lately for allegedly racially profiling a young black man who purchased a Ferragamo belt. Trayon Christian, 19, was detained by two undercover officers after buying the pricey accessory at the flagship store on Madison Avenue late last month. On Monday, Kanye West did his part to keep the discussion alive by rocking a Yeezus Confederate Flag bomber jacket while grabbing a solo lunch at the department store.

While 'Ye knew exactly what he was doing, many folks aren't feeling his attempt to "take back the meaning" of the flag. One Twitter user who goes by April pointed out the problem when she wrote,"Kanye is reclaiming the confederate flag. I'm old, but someone remind me: when was it ours before that he needs to 'reclaim' it now?"

Check out above how others were feeling about Kanye's move, and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
