Slight change made to Confederate billboard in Kemp

The owner of a billboard in Kaufman County has changed one part of its controversial image.

The sign in the small town of Kemp now shows the word Dallas in a generic font and color.

Previously, the word resembled the Dallas logo used by the Mavericks on their jerseys.

The rest of the cartoon shows a character urinating on the Dallas skyline, and reads, “I Support Confederate Heritage.”

Many people in Kemp have complained, including the mayor, who calls it indecent and offensive.

City leaders say the billboard is on private property, and they can't remove it.

It is not clear who paid for the billboard.

The modification appeared after the city said it would inform the Mavericks about the logo's use, hoping the team would take their own legal action.
