Southcarolinification In Action

North Carolina’s quest to become more like its neighbor to the south continues unabated:

Gov. Pat McCrory says he signed off on the controversial “pink licenses” that will be issued to some young illegal immigrants who were granted protection from deportation for two years.

The new North Carolina governor said he thought it was important that the driver’s licenses for immigrants clearly distinguish “between legal presence versus legal status.”

Critics have decried them as a modern-day scarlet letter. The new driver’s licenses will have a bright pink stripe and bold words “NO LAWFUL STATUS,” written in red capital letters across the front, according to mock-ups.

Stripe?  What, didn’t have the stones to use a pink triangle?

  1. Do you think they even have an idea how terrible this idea is, or to what historical events it links back to?

    Nah, me neither.
