I'd be a little concerned if I had one and went to a "big city" somewhere, especially up north.
All to easy to get your car "keyed" or something like that.

All of this nonsense over a "specialty" tag? A specialty tag that nobody is forced to buy. Never ending saga gets old doesn't it?

The Journal-Constitution reports that North Carolina, Alabama and Mississippi have specialty license tags that include it. Texas rejected an application to issue one, on the grounds that it would offend many residents. The Texas Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans sued board members of the Texas motor vehicle agency, and the case remains in the courts.
The Georgia Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans requested that the state issue the new plates. Spokesman Ray McBerry said the group meant no offense and views the plates as a way for people to honor their heritage.
"We believe that everyone has the right to preserve their heritage," he said. "Southerners have as much right to be proud of their heritage as anybody else."

Did any of you read why they are doing this?
Spent time all over and yes it is sarcasm. You can say the same about most states.
"It's Georgia what can you say."
Beaumont, that is what I am asking you to explain. Was that sarcasm? Was that experience from living there? I am curious how quick we are always ready to judge another state from within the state we live in. Are you from Georgia?
"Beaumont, what exactly does that mean?" Are you from Georgia?
"Considering the pain and shame caused by slavery"
You mean a way of life centuries ago that doesn't occur today. Interesting how history still haunts us with it in politics. Republicans fought to set them free and the same minority climbed in bed with the ones that fought to keep them in chains.
But then again, that is exactly why racism will always haunt us in every aspect of our society today. The Democrats can afford the truth.
Beaumont, what exactly does that mean?
It's Georgia what can you say.

Try to remember that it was under the American flag that the slaves were set free.
Considering the pain and shame caused by slavery, I am concerned but I don't live in Georgia nor have I ever lived in Georgia and this is a State of Georgia issue.

Interesting way of looking at it. (I never would have considered that.)
If they are offended with this flag because slavery existed under it, then they should be offended by all variations of the American flag the flew up until 1860.
