"A rally by 40 members of a group calling itself the National Socialist Movement drew hundreds of counter-protesters from throughout the region. In the hours leading up to the rally, where members called for the removal of all nonwhites from America's southwest, counter-protesters scuffled with people perceived to be sympathizing with the white supremacists' message."
That just happened here in California last week.
And I'll back that nice little piece with something that happened about 2 weeks ago:
"RICHMOND -- Gov. Robert F. McDonnell, reviving a controversy that had been dormant for eight years, has declared that April will be Confederate History Month in Virginia, a move that angered civil rights leaders Tuesday but that political observers said would strengthen his position with his conservative base." McDonnell said he did not include a reference to slavery because "there were any number of aspects to that conflict between the states. Obviously, it involved slavery. It involved other issues. But I focused on the ones I thought were most significant for Virginia."
This is most definately real, and this is the type of shit that frustrates me about this country. Notice how many headlines these two events made. Idl don't know how many, but it was not enough. Tiger Woods was on the News everyday for weeks! Over a personal family matter! I hate to admit this but, as I heard in the barbershop, being against the Negro seems to be what he media is all about.
The protesters at that rally said they want NONWHITES out of the Southwest. So that means, to me, they want to distribute the hate equally to blacks, Hispanics, and anyone else who is not white.
I want to make another point. Only about 5 people were arrested at that rally, and those were the ones growing rocks at the members of the National Socialist Movement. Now, had it been a big group of African-Americans protesting to get all whites out of California- ohhh the cops would have a FIELD DAY!! They wouldn't be described as a "group of peaceful protestors". They would be considered as an "angry mob" and all that.
It saddens me that it is 2010, and there is still this type of hate and prejudice in the country that I want raise my children in.
I want to know how you feel about this. No matter how old you are, it concerns you. Open your eyes and ears just a little more. Time most definately repeats itself. Do you think you would do what it takes to fight for respect in this country?
