"Texas May Approve A Confederate Flag License Plate"

Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX) may soon get the chance to advertise his love of secession on his car. The Lonestar State is considering a specialty license plate that would feature the Confederate flag. The Texas Sons of Confederate Veterans (whose own logo incorporates the flag) designed the plate to “remember Texans who died fighting in the Civil War.” The president of the state’s NAACP chapter, however, said that the flag on license plates “would be humiliating and demeaning.” A state board has yet to approve the plate and will reconsider approval in a few months.
