US high court says states can bar contentious license plates

The US Supreme Court, seen on March 12, 2015, in Washington, DC, ruled against a request by a group in Texas to print a Confederate flag emblem on their license platesThe US Supreme Court ruled Thursday that states can refuse to print images on vehicle license plates to prevent symbols, such as the Confederate flag seen by some as racist, from appearing to be government-sponsored. The top court’s nine justices voted five-to-four against a request by a group in Texas to print a Confederate flag emblem on their license plates. The Confederate flag, which was flown over the southern states as they attempted to secede from the country during the Civil War, is considered a symbol of racism and slavery by many Americans.
