Brickbat: CYA


Jonathan Kotler is suing the California Department of Motor Vehicles for denying his request for a personalized license plate that would read "COY-W." Kotler is a fan of the British Fulham soccer club. The club wears white jerseys, and fans chant "Come on you whites," which is often abbreviated COYW. The DMV says the slogan could be perceived as racist. But Kotler notes that the team's owner Shahid Khan uses the phrase and that at least half the team is non-white.
