The Sons of Confederate Veterans, says the license plate is intended to commemorate those who lost their lives in the war and the number of black soldiers that served under the general during his command.
If the plate does make it into production, then this will be a victory for the KKK. I can only imagine what it would be like for those African Americans who live in Mississippi and those who come to visit the state to be driving around and have to look at plates supporting the KKK. It would be rather intimidating. A step like this will only strengthen the KKK in Mississippi.
