Florida’s Confederate Plates Bill Dead in the Water
[Hat-Tip to John Maas]
It looks like Representative Don Brown’s bill to offer Confederate plates to Florida’s residents is going nowhere. Here is what Brown had to say:
It is not about racism, it’s not about slavery, it is about an acknowledgement that many of these people’s families have documented that they had friends and family or family who lost their lives fighting for a cause they believed in.
Fair enough, but why not honor your Confederate heritage in a way that does not involve defacing a sacred symbol?
