Pat McCrory on Civil Rights

 

  
 


Terminate license plates noting Sons of Confederate Veterans

Southern governors, including North Carolina's Pat McCrory, are pushing to erase state support of the Confederate battle flag. McCrory signaled his intent to ask the General Assembly to end availability of license plates that pay tribute to the Sons of Confederate Veterans.

"Governor McCrory will be requesting that the General Assembly change the North Carolina statute in order to discontinue the issuance of the Confederate battle flag emblem on state-issued license plates," his Communications Director said. "The time is right to change this policy due to the recent Supreme Court ruling and the tragedy in Charleston."

Dylann Roof was charged in the shooting deaths of nine African Americans at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, S.C., last week. Roof is an alleged white supremacist whose social media postings prominently displayed the Confederate battle flag. S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley asked lawmakers to remove the flag from the statehouse grounds in response to the Charleston shooting.
