This affects anyone who wishes to see the US march forward towards King's dream, which includes me, and hopefully you too.

There is nothing of the sort. This whole issue isn't about racism. No one is accusing anyone of being a racist. None.

This is the DMV being overly cautious and attempting to guess what the population would interpret an equivocal message. The DMV does not think it is racist. They just fear someone out there would.

If I tell you not to wear a Payton Manning jersey because someone out there might mistaken you for a gangbanger. That does NOT mean I am falsely accusing you of gang banging. Do you understand?

If you had said: society is getting so frickle that the word White can't be on a license plate and that just doesn't sit well with me. That'd have been fine. This is a people being too sensitive issue, not a racism issue.

In the end, this is just people being people. No need to make it out to be more than it is.

I'm not saying this is snowflake of the snowflake territory, but if someone is to make a post about one freaking license plate. It should come with an explanation of why this is worth its own thread.

Itís worth its own thread because it illustrates how bat**** crazy American liberals have become. It also reminds rational and sane Americans why they should never vote for any Democrat.

Imagine if I make an entire thread about this man and then saying this man alone is the reason not to vote for Republicans. But liberals are not snowflakes like some people.

It seems some people are obsesses with being OFFENDED. I guess it gives them a sense of power and entitlement, although I can't understand why. Maybe it is that with accusations they can control other's behavior, or at least attempt to. Sad.

You know this how? Link or quote from CA DMV?

If this is really the criteria, virtually all vanity plates would have to be banned since there is always the possibility that 'someone out there would' be offended. Remember when Ross Perot used the term 'you people' and some thought it was racist? Or when John McCain referred to Obama as 'that one' and was accused of racism?

Bah, you are just making stuff up to extricate yourself from a dumb position that I knocked down. By banning the COYW plate, the DMV clearly meant to imply that it was a racist slogan. And it appears that they are going to get knocked down in court as well.

BTW I did not know what 'frickle' meant, so I looked it up:

Fricīkle

A bushel basket.

WTH are you talking about???

...
And from post #1:

Quote:
California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) denied Jonís request due to its subjective fear that the slogan is hostile, insulting, or racially degrading.
So no, you are flat wrong. The DMV did not deny the request due to the fear that someone might be offended. They denied due their fear that the slogan was racially degrading.

Cali has plenty of nut-jobs on either end of the spectrum. That is potential equality right there.

Kotler is suing with the help of the 1st Amendment org 'Pacific Legal Foundation.' One of his lawyers said in an interview yesterday that they had a recent court appearance, which went well for them, and not for CA DMV.
It comes across as if Whites aren't doing enough and need to do better. Which is silly. (Unless an Asian or East Indian is saying it.)

In a world where Barbecue Becky goes viral and makes national news, why shouldn't this be significant?

We didn't build this.
