GA plate embroilment: Confederate Flag License Plate

GA plate embroilment: Confederate Flag License Plate, ?For those of you in the market for one of Georgia’s fashionable Confederate flag license plates but are worried about that whole “movement to rid America of a dark mark,” don’t worry. They’re not gone forever–just getting a redesign. After halting sales in June, after a swell of pushback provoked by the massacre of nine black churchgoers in Charleston, Georgia’s plates are back with a flashy new look designed by the Sons of Confederate Veterans. They’re all the rage with millennial bigots.

Georgia law requires Sons of Confederate Veterans to have state-sponsored vanity plates. Instead of calling for an end of the plates entirely, Gov. Nathan Deal ordered a redesign to remove the “larger image of the Rebel flag that forms the background of the plate while retaining a small, ‘blood red’ version of the emblem in the foreground,” the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Baby steps.

Though 4,200 people signed a petition for Georgia to stop selling the plates, Sons of Confederate Veterans, which is funded by the tag’s sales, threatened legal action. Since the law was put in place a decade ago, 3,500 people have signed up to get the plate.
