Gov. Rick Perry must be serious about running for president and he intends to win the KKK wing of his party.
The Texas DMV is considering a new license plate that would feature the Confederate flag. The idea, ostensibly, is to honor Texans who fought in the Civil War. However, some people say they are offended by the idea.
“It brings back the anger from which it stands for — the Civil War — and I don’t think it should be allowed,” said Donald Dunaway.
The Confederate flag is about the size of a baseball on the Texas license plate and would be clearly visible. The Texas Sons of Confederate Veterans designed the plate and argue the goal is to remember Texans who died fighting in the Civil War.
All the plates you see on Texas cars must first be approved by the state.
Houston Pastor James Nash says he hopes it isn’t approved.
“It shouldn’t be because it’s still offensive to a lot of people,” he said.
The president of the state’s NAACP chapter said the flag on Texas license plates would be humiliating and demeaning.
What’s next from Texas? A “Proud to Secede” license plate?
