NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The number of Tennesseans with Confederate battle flag license plates has reached its highest point in a decade.

Data from the Tennessee Department of Revenue shows that 3,273 of the license plates benefiting the Sons of Confederate Veterans were active at the end of the 2018 fiscal year, The Tennessean reported. That number represents a 72 percent increase from the end of the 2015 fiscal year.

I used to work in a place where one of the night shift janitors was a young black guy who drove a Miata with a “Confederate” flag for the front license plate. (Massachusetts was a rear license plate only state at that time.) “Confederate” in quotes, because it was the Battle Flag of the Army of Northern Virginia, not the Confederate national flag.

I can’t!!

You see, I worked out of suburbia Boston for 16+ years.
I was awful.
PTSD is real.

Yep. I used to have a rebel flag license plate and a horn that played Dixie on my 79 Jeep Wrangler. 😀

Thanks for the terminology. “Rebel” flag, not “Confederate”.

We use a lot of terminology in the South but it's always with our middle finger pointed North. 😀

Hmmm. You should be more discriminating. The Clinton’s came from Little Rock. Trump is from Queens.

Hillary is from the Chicago area. Over 6,000 Confederate prisoners died at Camp Douglas in Chicago.
