White Mississippi Navy Secretary Puts Civil Rights Leaders In the Back of the Fleet

It seems to me the Navy’s messaging is really off in this. They’ve unveiled a new class of ship for the Navy. They are going to name the class of ship the “John Lewis Class” after Congressman John Lewis. Each ship will be named for a civil rights leader.

The class of ship? Fleet Replenishment Oilers.

So, in other words, the class of ship unveiled by the white former Governor of the only state to bear the confederate flag on its state flag will be named for Civil Rights Leaders and will be at the back of the fleet servicing all the ships ahead of them.

It’s also a bit humorous that the class of ship will be named after a man who is an opponent of oil usage.
