Rick Perry attacks Confederate Flag.

From Rick Perry…

Texas Gov. Rick Perry said Wednesday he was opposed to the state issuing a license plate featuring a Confederate battle flag, publicly declaring his position on the proposal for the first time.

The Sons of Confederate Veterans applied for the Texas plate but opponents have called it highly offensive to African-Americans. The group is a national organization open to the male descendants of any man who served honorably in the Confederate forces during the Civil War.
