Al Mackey made a reasonable post at https://studycivilwar.wordpress.com/2015/03/24/the-texas-plates-case-drives-to-the-court/ Concerning the issue of Texas getting a Sons Of Confederate Veterans tags with the SCV logo displayed. I think most reasonable people can agree with the right of freedom of speech. Honestly I have no problem with Mackey’s blog post. I do however have a problem with the dimwitted comment made by one Jimmy Dick —-

I wonder whether they can insert words that racist symbols cannot be used on the plates because the use of the symbol out of its natural historical context is meant to be racist and to inspire hate crimes as a result.
I’m sure the current make up of the SCOTUS would ignore any studies showing the racism involved with non-historical use of the CBF leads to hate crimes. You know very well that the heritage groups ignore that point.
Well Jimmy because of your comment, this one’s for you —-
