i noticed that this standard white tag:


is quite uncommon (like under 10%) while the green standard one is very common:


i find it very unusual for this bible belt.

my explanation is people prefer green color. my wife thinks people are afraid to show if they are religious.

who is right?

Even a lot of people who are religious don't consider it so important that they want a license plate advertising it. Doesn't mean they're "afraid to show they are religious" - it's just not worth the extra 15 or 20 bucks to have on their license plate.

no extra $15-20. this is a standard plate. you have a choice of white or green.

Oh, that's not considered a vanity plate or special interest plate? My mistake. Some states it is; I thought I'd been told that Alabama was one.

I love our green hills tag. Almost as good as the beach one, which might've been our best ever.

I got the green one because I thought it was more attractive.

but no way the white one is under 10%. i see a ton of them. probably not 50%, but i'd guess at least 25%.

you have to look closely. my neighbors have all white ones but on close inspection, they are help the schools vanity ones.

Edit:
full disclosure, i have both white and green ones on different cars/boat trailers. the white one fits my white car much better color wise.

The standard tag is this one


The reason you see that one more is because that is the standard one not the white one. The white is not a standard tag.

This one here below:


This one is a specialty tag. You have to pay extra for this one. Not a standard tag

The fact that you even see this tag shows people commitment to their religion. If this were standard, you'd see it just as much as the green one.

well, this is news to me. when i was issued new plates, in 2013 and 2014 (as recently as end of December 2014 for my son's car), both white and green were regular plates with no extra fee. i will double check the registration receipts.
