"Plans for a Mississippi specialty license plate honoring controversial Confederate Lt. Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest are reviving tensions over 'unreconstructed' Southerners and their place in the modern South. The Sons of Confederate Veterans want to honor Forrest on a 2014 specialty license plate. Mississippi has more than 150 specialty plates, the most popular ones being 'Choose Life' and NASCAR-related license plates. But the state NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) and a Facebook group are raising objections."
