Kansas Is Recalling License Plates With Racial Slurs
There have been recalls all over the news lately for everything from lettuce to medication. But the latest one isn’t health or safety related. It’s over 700 license plates out of Kansas that have racial slurs on them. Japanese-American Barbara Johnson was driving in Kansas when she noticed “JAP” on the license plate in front of her. It’s reported several plates throughout the state have that lettering and after a year of complaints, the state is recalling them. These plates are standard letter combinations that are randomly given out, not personalizes plates. A letter was sent to the owners asking them to trade their plates in at the county clerk for a new plate within 30 days, or they will receive a new one at their renewal date.
