Personalized license plate owner: It's an ode to Harleys, not racism ("DYNGR")

MUSKEGON COUNTY -- Richard Macaulay is a Harley-Davidson lover through and through.

The Muskegon man said he takes pride in his Harley-Davidson Dyna Wide Glide motorcycle, which he keeps in immaculate condition.

Macaulay said he was shocked to receive a letter from the Michigan Secretary of State's office recently stating that his personalized license plate of seven years had been revoked.

The Secretary of State's office informed the retired factory worker that a complaint from a Muskegon Heights woman had surfaced, claiming the personalized tag was racially insensitive.

The plate reads: DYNGR.

Tiffany Gilmore filed the complaint last month. Gilmore, who is black, believed the plate encouraged racism toward blacks.

Macaulay says the plate, which was renewed every year without objection is an ode to his love of the Harley Davidson brand of motorcycles.

He says it's an abbreviation that blends his two favorite Harleys: The Dyna Wide Glide and the Soft Tail Springer. Over the seven years he had the plate, Macaulay said he never received objections from anyone.

His brother-in-law thought it was an abbreviation for "danger." But, he said, no one ever thought it was racially motivated.

Until last month.

After he received the complaint letter, Macaulay said it took him several minutes to figure out what the fuss was about.

"I don't think that way," he said. "It took me a while to figure it out."

"This lady assumed immediately that I was a racist skinhead," Macaulay said. "There are so many other things going on, like the war. People have nothing better to do than spend their lives being pissed off."

Took me a while to figure out how it could be viewed as racist, even looking for it. I guess some people just go out of their way to be offended.

Thanks fro the brain cramp guys. I wasted 5 minutes of my life because some idiot badly wants to find something to be outraged about. Grow up morons. You cannot legislate EVERTHING and maintain freedom.

No. I feed, water, and provide protected nesting sites for birds in my backyard - including tasty doves.

No. I'm going to use predator scents first. If that doesn't do it then I'll have to trap them. I've been to this rodeo before and it's sad. Feral cats are unadaptable so the shelter just kills them. And I don't even care for cats all that much. :(

Salmon don't thrive in cans. All of them I've seen in cans were dead.

It's irradiated Moo. No chance of a crop. Now, if only that was true of the corn and the amaranthus!

I buy chicken scratch and sunflower seeds for the birds. It is a lot cheaper and they like it just fine. Don't take the sack outside so they can read the label though!

I would have thought it was a euphemism for danger, too.


I can see where a black person might read something else into DYNGR, though.
