White Supremacist Group Backs Private Academies in Mississippi

By Heidi Beirich on October 28, 2010 - 2:22 pm, Posted in White Nationalism

Old times certainly are not forgotten in some parts of the South. Two private Mississippi academies, set up in 1968 for white children facing the unacceptable (to their parents) prospect of sharing their classrooms with African Americans, are still being enthusiastically funded by white supremacists.

Calhoun Academy in Calhoun City, Miss., and Carroll Academy in Carrollton, Miss., have been the beneficiaries of considerable financial support the past two decades from the Council of Conservative Citizens (CCC), a crudely white supremacist group whose website has referred to blacks as “a retrograde species of humanity” and whose newspaper, Citizens Informer, regularly publishes articles condemning “race mixing” and lamenting the purported decline of white, European civilization.

The CCC is the direct descendant of the segregationist White Citizens Councils, using the earlier councils’ mailing lists to build its membership. The Supreme Court’s landmark 1954 decision, Brown v. Board of Education, ordering desegregation of the nation’s public schools, sparked the growth of the White Citizens Councils, whose propaganda read, “We will not be integrated. We are proud of our white blood and our white heritage of sixty centuries.” The councils’ first order of business after the decision was to create private, all-white schools that came to be known as segregation, or seg, academies. By 1975, at least a half million white students had withdrawn from public schools to avoid mandatory desegregation.

Though the academies remain across the South, their days of overtly catering solely to whites have ended. However, a minority presence at some schools can be hard to find: The headmaster of Carroll Academy, Steve Flemming, told Hatewatch the school has one non-white student. Calhoun’s headmaster, Coach Cameron White, told Hatewatch his school had four non-white students, some of whom “may have black blood in their families.”

The Carroll and Calhoun academies, both of which offer classes from kindergarten through high school, are revered by the CCC. The CCC’s longtime national field coordinator, Bill Lord, who was president of Carroll Academy for 14 years in the 1980s and 1990s, called them “the miracle of the century.” In 2004, Lord wrote in the Citizens Informer that the academies create “an atmosphere free of social experiments” for those who want to “associate with persons of like persuasion,” presumably meaning other whites. According to his biographical profile, Lord helped organize Carroll and Calhoun Academy, as well as six others in Arkansas and Tennessee.

The CCC works hard to support the schools, holding barbecue fundraisers that bring in substantial donations. In 1999, the CCC reported that it had raised over $100,000 for Calhoun Academy. The group also prominently features activities taking place at the academies in its publications. The CCC’s April-June 2010 Citizens Informer, for example, includes a photo of the Carroll Academy Lady Rebels basketball team, congratulating them for having won a championship.

In February, Carroll Academy hosted a CCC meeting that featured Jeppi Barbour, brother of Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour, describing a petition drive for a ballot proposal the would require voters to show ID before voting. Photos show Jeppi Barbour in the academy’s library speaking to dozens of CCC members. And the local CCC chapter regularly meets in the school’s facilities. In March 2009, the chapter’s meeting at the academy featured an unnamed guest speaker who is “one of the top judges in Mississippi, who gave a talk on the need for conservative organizations across the state to offset the liberals that are trying to influence the courts.”

Aligning with the CCC’s love of Old South symbols, the Carroll Academy’s sports teams sports teams are called the “Rebels” and the school’s mascot – featured prominently on its website – is Colonel Reb. The colonel is identical to the mascot the University of Mississippi axed seven years ago because of its connection to the confederacy. Several photos of a recent barbecue fundraiser the CCC held for the school are on the academy’s website, including one that depicts a big CCC banner alongside a confederate flag.

CCC Carroll Academy

Calhoun Academy also gets considerable ink in the CCC’s newsletter. A picture in April-June Citizens Informer shows a massive barbecue pit full of chicken that was sold to help the school. “Tasty B-B-Q benefits Calhoun Academy,” reads the caption. On another page the newsletter notes that the barbecue event brought in over $1,600 for Calhoun, described as a “private school organized by the Council.” A 2004 description of a barbecue fundraiser put on by the local CCC chapter said the funds from “the program are used to purchase textbooks and visual aids for the school library.” These events have been held for nearly two decades for both schools.

Given how the CCC has helped out Carroll Academy, it was surprising how unaware headmaster Flemming claimed to be about the group. He told Hatewatch that CCC members have children in his academy and that the group is “supportive of the school.” But he insisted that he was “not informed” about the CCC, even though the group regularly meets on his campus. He refused to condemn their racist views saying that he didn’t want “offend anyone” and that “they have their right to feel how they feel.” Flemming also told Hatewatch that the parents of his school’s one non-white student “have never had a concern” about white supremacists meeting at and funding his academy.

White, Calhoun Academy’s headmaster, told Hatewatch that the CCC donates only “about $4 a year” to the school, which contradicts the CCC’s own descriptions of its fundraisers for the school. When asked about the barbecue the group held earlier this year to raise funds for the school, White said his campus receives “no direct donations” and said he didn’t know if the CCC had “assisted in cooking” to benefit the school. When asked about the CCC’s racist views, White said, “I wouldn’t comment on that.”

Both schools are accredited members of the Mississippi Association of Independent Schools (MAIS), which includes dozens of private academies in Mississippi, Louisiana and Arkansas. A search of the association’s accreditation materials could find no reference to best practices or policies dealing with racism or discrimination. E-mails requesting comment from MAIS regarding its policies and the CCC’s support of Calhoun and Carroll academies were not answered (the association posts no telephone number and only accepts inquiries through E-mail).

11.05.10 Update: I received an email comment today from David Derrick, executive director of MAIS. It reads: “Policies of the Mississippi Association of Independent Schools (MAIS) provide that member schools shall not discriminate in enrollment on the basis of race.  Member schools, however, are autonomous in their decisions regarding funding.  There are no policies in place that allow for, or require, review of funding sources of member schools.”

1.10.11 Update: I received another email today from David Derrick. His organization has asked for and now received “letters from the leadership of both schools stating that they will discontinue any support or funding from the CCC.” That means that as of now no MAIS schools have any connections with the CCC.

    I’m a graduate of this ”little academy” , I attended both public and private schools. I now attend college with people from many ethnic backgrounds and get along with all of them. I’m very offended by this article. We are far from racist. Carroll academy was a school I could attend and feel safe, not walk through metal detectors to get inside, and could pray and worship God anytime I wanted too. If you would like to be a proud graduate of Carroll, then by all means enroll. Do not criticize me for choosing to go to a safe God worshiping school that my parents work hard to send me too!

  • Mitch Beales

    I learned about snow in school. That’s white.

  • Ruslan Amirkhanov

    Oh also Jeremy, perhaps you didn’t hear but Jewish schools are religious schools, whereas “white” is not a religion. If someone is a practicing Jew, they might want them to go to a school that teaches oh I don’t know, Hebrew scripture, Jewish religious history, the Hebrew language, you know? Ditto for Muslims, Hindus, or Protestant Christians. White is not a religion. You don’t go to school to learn about “white” things.

  • Ruslan Amirkhanov

    Jeremy, your “Solutrean” hypothesis is BS, period: http://anti-racistcanada.blogs.....trean.html

    There is no credible link between the Europeans who came to the New World and some group of ancient, pre-Indo Europeans who may have made it to the “New World” tens of thousands of years prior. If you are going to make a link between Europeans and Solutreans you really have no reason to draw a line between Europeans and Africans, since all human history traces back there.

  • Mitch Beales

    By the way Jeremy perhaps you and your straw man should take a trip to Oz for a heart, a brain, some courage, and a pair of ruby slippers to take you back to the hole you crawled out of.

  • Mitch Beales

    Jeremy untwist your panties and accept the fact that many people find white only schools repugnant. It is even more repugnant that they seem to have adopted a “don’t ask don’t tell” policy about their racism and that of their supporters. My own hope is that so many racists are heading into the closet that they will suffocate in there.

    Are you really so warped that you believe that raping the women and murdering the men doesn’t constitute genocide? http://www.nytimes.com/2008/12.....65231.html
    I’m sure you wouldn’t accept the NY Times as a reliable source so if you’ll google “rape genocide” you’ll find more documentation.

    “You must be THIS Jewish”

    http://www.npr.org/2010/11/10/.....Originally

    From California, Jonathan Leavitt went to Israel this year to serve in the Israeli Defense Forces. He was surprised to discover that in the eyes of Israeli law, he was not considered a Jew, because his mother had converted to Judaism.

    It wasn’t until Leavitt arrived that he was told that according to Jewish law in Israel, he isn’t considered a Jew.”

    Don’t you all just love double standards?

    Where’s the ADL on this? … oh wait, ADL is a Jewish Supremacist Organization, they’re only concerned about what the ever-so-hated White/European does for himself and his future.

    A White only school = “OMFZ, racist, nazi, bigot, redneck, inbred, honkey” you name it, the sad part is that it also comes from other Whites, not just Jews – as you would expect.

    So Jewish-Only Yeshivas are fine, but White-Only schools are not? WTF kind of hypocrisy is this?

  • Jeremy

    “. jeremy my bad!…..the europeans only killed off three quarters of the native population here and did not get the chance to do it completely so it can’t be classified as genocide…”

    Good enough defense for these hypothetical Solutrean genociders, AKA Native Americans, good enough for Americans with my skin color too, right?

    Some interbreeding = not genocide. Works with slavery too.

    “and besides the savages that the europeans encountered here were not worthy of living on this prestine continent right!…god had ordained that europeans inherit this land and to take it by what ever means from these soul less savages……i bet this is what is being taught in these schools.”

    I got a straw man who says they say pretty bad stuff in Yeshivas. Of course Ive never actually been to one and wouldnt know, but Im letting you take the lead here, lets just speculate and dream up the the worst.

  • Jeremy

    Well ruben, we know Europeans mixed with Native Americans to some extent, so using your hypothetical Solutrean argument, what happened to America’s ‘natives’ is not a genocide.

    Funny how you guys change around your definition of genocide so you can use it to demonize the group you hate.

  • Jeremy

    Big deal.

    A school should NOT have to accept all applicants if they do not recieve public funding, and I dont give a damn who they get their private funding from, ‘racists’ or whatever.

    Non-issue. Just something for anti-racism zealots to get their panties in a twist over.

  • ruben

    tonysoprano…. the solutreans?….and you probably believe in santa claus and the easter bunny also.but lets say that the solutreans hypothesis is true and some ancient ice age hunters did make it across the frozen atlantic 20,000 years ago they would be part of the ancestors of the BROWN native north americans that the europeans met and quickly started to commit genocide on when they first came to this continent.and as far as europe being invaded maybe the europeans should see what happened to the native people of this continent after a foreign/hostile horde from europe invaded and try to do something before its to late….and as far as the yeshivas are concerned i doubt that jewish supremacy is on the curriculum there but i bet that white supremacy is on the curriculum of white only schools.

  • Mitch Beales

    I’ve actually never heard of a gentile being denied admission to a Yeshiva. Has anyone else? I submit that Calhoun and Carroll academies are more hypocritical than any Yeshiva because they deny their knowledge of and association with their racist supporters while Yeshivas proudly advertise their association with Judaism. I’ve actually been to shul and I’m not Jewish so I suspect Rose is a little challenged when it comes to understanding Jewish institutions and Yiddish language.

    I don’t know much about “solutreans” but I like the music and the dancing is really fine. Or was that Soul Train?

  • Ruslan Amirkhanov

    Tony, you have nothing to do with the “Solutreans” the idea that there is some kind of connection between you and these ancient people is simply insane. Moreover whatever these people were they clearly mixed in with the latecomers which explains why some native groups share that particular haplogroup marker.

  • Sorin14

    Jews are the biggest hypocrites in the world, it’s not that Whites are “anti-Semitic”, it’s that Jews are VEHEMENTLY ANTI-WHITE!!!

    Do you see any White people giving them crap about their Jew-only Yeshivas? No, yet they constantly whine and sue whenever Whites try doing anything for themselves and their future other than curl up into a ball and die.

    Look at the comments on this site, the only thing that makes these “acceptable” and those of your ever-so-hated “white supremacists”, “unacceptable” is that it’s insulting Whites not Jews, or blacks, etc…

    if these people miss europe and the european culture so much then i suggest they go back….after all that is there indigenous/native homeland….north america is the indigenous home to people of color (brown) the europeans came here pretty much uninvited and just helped themselves to everything….go back to europe if you do not like it here,you have every right to complain over there in your native lands if you do not like what you see, but in the new world you are immigrants( and in most cases unwelcome by the natives) like most every one else….america like it or leave it.and to be honest i think that this country/continent would be better off without people like them…and don’t let the door hit you you know where on the way out……………………Here we have the typical ignorant leftist rant. Europe is be invaded by third worlders and in europe if you say anything about it you are branded a racist. The western hemisphere belongs to the original solutreans who first came to north and south america before they were genocided by the asian invaders.

    Why so sensitive? If they are great schools the kids will get a great education and parents will continue to send them there. In that case I applaud duping the racist “Conservative” Citizens Council into supporting education. If, on the other hand, kids in these schools are indoctrinated into the “southern way of life” perhaps parents who read Hatewatch will decide to make a better choice for their children.

    I lived in Mississippi when the White Citizens Council was formed. I am well aware that a primary goal of this organization was to thwart school desegregation. I am also aware that, when well to do segregationists began sending their kids to these institutions, funding for public schools and the quality of public education in Mississippi (which had been excellent at least in white schools in Hinds County) began to decline.

    In 2008 both Calhoun Academy and Carroll Academy were 100% white according to education.com.
    http://www.education.com/schoo.....d-teachers
    http://www.education.com/schoo.....d-teachers
    Perhaps Carroll academy has admitted a non-white student (1 out of 450) since then or perhaps the definition of “white” changes depending on whether you are trying to recruit the children of racists or impress Hatewatch readers with your inclusiveness. I wonder if these schools still pass on their used and outdated textbooks to the “colored” schools as they did when the “southern way of life” was intact.

    I encourage anyone who is gay or lesbian to come out of the closet. It’s going to get crowded with all these racists hiding in there.

  • Bourne

    And how do you know what “non-education” they are getting at the school? Do you have any information on the curriculum being taught? Do you know anything about the school other than what your biased little bloggers say?

    Seems peculiar that people with no actual knowledge or experience with the school would have more to say than the parents of the nonwhite children who send their kids to it.

  • Mitch Beales

    Diversity exists everywhere. According to my mother there was gossip in her home town if a Missouri Synod Lutheran married an ALC Lutheran and absolute scandal if someone should marry a Catholic. The point is that if you don’t associate with the people who are most different from you you will simply find someone more like yourself to hate.

    The racists posting here seem to object to SPLC pointing out that some schools in Mississippi accept funds from hate groups and don’t seem to adhere to widely accepted standards of fair treatment regardless of race, creed, or color. Some of you think that shouldn’t be a problem since no one is forced to send their kids there. They do have a right to know what kind of reactionary non-education their kids are getting so it only seems appropriate for SPLC to point it out. Racists are not required to read Hatewatch so perhaps they should just STFU.

  • skinnyminny

    Geo said, “coming soon to a voters booth near you.” Hahaha! Surprise, surprise, surprise sir, all I can say to you is, “surprise, surprise, coming to a neighborhood near you – no more upscale/suburban neighborhoods.” We will start taking our neighborhoods/cities back, block by block, by moving into each and every area. Oh, I think you guys got the surprise to see Whitman and Fiorina couldn’t buy the elections in Califas – they would have succeeded had they tried to buy Darrell Issa (R) seat in San Diego, or John Campbell’s (R) seat in Costa Mesa.

  • skinnyminny

    Dan,
    as a multi-racial minority – (white, Native American and Black), which would, of course, due to American standards of labeling ethnicity, I’m Black – thanks to the one-drop rule, take offense to your comments that Blacks use more drugs than whites. Are you serious? Didn’t you mean to say that whites are rarely charged for drug offenses that blacks are usually charged for – i.e. Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton…because of their status.

    Oh! And you say that blacks have lower IQ’s! Then, please do, explain to me why people pay so much money to listen to Sarah Palin? Personally, I think Meg Whitman has a higher IQ, and to me, I can relate to Meg more and, for sure, have a better conversation with than Sarah. BTW, I know people that are white that are not very bright – yes, these were the ones who dropped out of school to take care of the family, or dropped out of school to work on the family farm/or business. In addition, it is not the blacks that are always duped out of their life savings looking for a quick/get rich scheme. So, I think you need to change your point of views, and stop spreading this type of rhetoric.

  • Bourne

    I’m confused here…Some of you say we should go back to Europe because it’s our native land, some of you say we are white and NOT European, and some say there’s no such thing as “white”. So which is it?

    By the way, it’s a bit ironic that someone would say we should go back to Europe if we don’t like the way it is here, all while complaining about a private school funded by private citizens. Don’t like it? Don’t send your kids there.

  • Enquiring Minds

    For all you puffed up posters who want to forcibly integrate Whites, what is the racial composition of YOUR neighborhood and that of the schools YOUR children attend? Enquiring minds want to know. I strongly suspect they are not as diverse as you would like us to believe. Not “for one cotton-picking moment.” No, sirree.

    In the meantime, what is it to you if ignorant rednecks who do not want to integrate pay for private, segregated schooling out of their own pockets to avoid it? It’s not like your pocketbooks are being dinged. Why do you have your collective underwear in such a twist? Why would you want these Neanderthals ruining race relations anyway? They won’t ever want to have “honest conversations about race” that Negros so love. Not like you. Maybe what is needed is for a better class of White people, like you, who can appreciate all that delicious diversity (that makes us all so strong) to assimilate.

    So … before you try “to do something” about Whites who do not want their children to associate with Negros or go to school with them, why don’t you “do something” new and unheard of? Lead by example by practicing what you preach to those ignorant White racists.

    After all, there are no laws against miscegenation anymore. Step up to to the plate; man up (or woman up) as the case may be, marry a Negro and breed little mulatto children. Let YOUR children integrate Negro schools. Encourage YOUR children to date and marry Negros. Move into neighborhoods with all that delicious diversity and expose YOUR families to it. Show us the way, oh great ones!

    Otherwise, feel free to STFU.

    DAN offered this gem:

    “Studies show that blacks have a lower IQ than whites, and thats blacks who are taught by whites.”

    You may have not heard of a group called MENSA, Dan but that group has continually PROVEN that the whole concept of the “IQ” is a fallacy.It’s frankly a fun little “in-joke”. Professionals in intelligence testing used differing techniques in modern times.There are very specific reasons to do so. Perhaps you should find out exactly what the superior white man can do?

    Join up and see: MENSA, Dept AW 2626 E. 14th St Brooklyn, NY 11235. You’ll need to take the standard 1960′s test & a new one.
    Now if a “mixed breed”, non-white could get in…….don’t you think you could too? Try it out.

    “History has shown us that different cultures/races DO NOT get along. Even people of the same race and different religions/beliefs do not get along. We are creating a powder keg in North America that is gonna blow.”

    No, not really. History is just as full of examples of people cooperating across racial lines as it is competing.

    “With that said, is it really such a big deal that these people want their children around there own race ? Studies show that blacks have a lower IQ than whites, and thats blacks who are taught by whites.”

    People with Asperger’s Syndrome often show very high IQs- what is your point? The fact is that test scores(on tests which are now more or less worthless) more or less equalize once one controls for income among white and other students.

    Crime rates among blacks and whites also equalize when one controls for income level and population density. Detroit is a densely populated city that has been continually devastated by economic problems.

    Oh but if that’s not good enough you might want to then explain why lily white European Russia went from a state of almost zero crime in the Soviet era to a criminal wasteland currently. At least in Detroit the cops don’t beat people to death or rape women.

  • Dan

    What is the big problem with forcing diversity on anyone anyways?

    History has shown us that different cultures/races DO NOT get along. Even people of the same race and different religions/beliefs do not get along. We are creating a powder keg in North America that is gonna blow.

    With that said, is it really such a big deal that these people want their children around there own race ? Studies show that blacks have a lower IQ than whites, and thats blacks who are taught by whites. Blacks are also more violent and prone to drug use than whites (according to government statistics). Take a look at Detroit (or any city/country with 75% black population) and look at the crime rate and quality of life.

    I don’t blame them though. I know it isn’t there fault, it is the White mans fault for interfering. We never should have taken these people from Africa and tried to domesticate them. Integration has failed.

    “Tantamount to wanting to destroy their precious white race.”

    Perhaps…..but I don’t think they (WN) even have a decent working definition.
    Let’s takes this “Geo” for instance: is he truly pure?
    How could he prove it? (To himself of course: I could care less if he’s impure….)
    What method of defining “white” would be used so that it has validity as a racial elements with defining ethnocentric characteristics?
    What if he were of Mediterranean extraction (Southern European, Italian, etc) & made the laughable blunder of thinking himself aligned with WN?
    I fairly confident that there is no such thing as “white”. Certainly it cannot be quantified. How many generations back should be assessed to determine a distinct nationality? Once that were met, what would be the defining elements?
    I think there may be a insurmountable problem brewing here…..

    “days of overtly catering solely to whites have ended. However, a minority presence at some schools can be hard to find: The headmaster of Carroll Academy, Steve Flemming, told Hatewatch the school has one non-white student.”

    Funny how the lack of school diversity is a problem only when the white students predominate. Whenever I see all-black schools in NYC, Detroit or Chicago, or the all-mestizo schools in LA, Albuquerque or Dallas, I don’t notice anyone demanding some diversity to be forced upon those schools. And I’m not even talking about the schools that have been HISTORICALLY non-white, like the Tuskegee college. I specifically mean those institutions that have become non-white due to white flight, and busing The Left always makes it crystal clear; there’s nothing wrong with racial homogeneity, as long as it doesn’t involve white folks.

    Oh and yeah, fried chicken was actually invented by Gaels in medieval Scotland, Isle of Man and Ireland, and introduced to the Thirteen Colonies by their descendants, the Scotch-Irish settlers, while still during the British colonial period. Way even before the American revolution. Over the time, due to its cheapness and ready availability, it became a popular food among both poor Southern whites and the African-Americans.

    As a white man I wish that dingbats like Geo would stop talking like he represented all of us.After all only a few of us like Geo had cousins as parents who had a bad habit of dropping their babies on the head.

  • Ruslan Amirkhanov

    Geo, stop crying for a second. In case you hadn’t heard, blacks have had more financial problems historically, and education has at least in many cases provided more opportunities to black youth. White people as a whole(you’re not European, sorry) do not need these special organizations. Besides, white students could apply for scholarships just like anyone else.

    Of course if you REALLY wanted to help everyone, you would support subsidized if not free higher education, like in most industrialized countries. Oh but dat’s SOSHALISM!!!

    Kudos to Matthew Bright’s thus observing:


    I’d like to know what part of European culture and civilization these people are maintaining, or even if they’re aware of any aspect of said “white civilization,” in the fields of literature, arts, sciences, etc., not to mention any of the other civilizations they so readily disparage.

    To which I’d like to add if they’re also expecting their charges to study and emulate apartheid South Africa from the white, Afrikaner-centrist viewpoint as America’s Last Hope for Saving Her From Herself (and remember that the apartheid regime was calling themselves “G-d’s Own Country,” and excused apartheid as one with Divine Right and Will).

    Geo,

    1) I have good reason to believe that there ARE some people in the broad anti-racist movement who are anti-European. But they are a tiny minority. A lot of radical people of color encourage European-Americans to celebrate that part of their identity instead of the White part of their identity (which is steeped in white supremacy). These people would include such national figures as Angela Davis, Ward Churchill, and Bill Fletcher.

    Considering what you believe, I’m tempted to say F#ck White interests. But another way to put it is that people who are white are not helped by the bigotry you promote. I’m not sure where you are on the class and economic questions, but racism divides the working class, to one degree or another, which weakens it. It also results in people becoming Nazis when, without the bigotry, they would probably be socialists and making the world and our country a better place.

    2) I’m pretty sure that you are referring to HISTORICALLY (not exclusively) black schools. They had to develop such schools because they couldn’t get into the other schools. The UNCF was created for basically the same reason.

    3) There are tons of people, almost exclusively people who oppose your bigotry, who believe in doing things to address the financial obstacles to college for EVERYONE. Once again, this is something where your bigotry HURTS not just people of color, but also a lot of white people too.

    Your concern for poor whites is a joke when you also indicate support for the Tea Party- they’ll do NOTHING to help white people get into college. You express concern for poor whites just because it makes you seem populist and because you like to portray them as victims; but you’ll do nothing to help them if it means eroding capitalism.

    I agree that they should try living in Europe for awhile. They might find that the liberal democracies in France and Germany, not to mention Scandinavia, are to their liking. My experience is that people who travel are much more open minded toward different cultures.

    if these people miss europe and the european culture so much then i suggest they go back….after all that is there indigenous/native homeland….north america is the indigenous home to people of color (brown) the europeans came here pretty much uninvited and just helped themselves to everything….go back to europe if you do not like it here,you have every right to complain over there in your native lands if you do not like what you see, but in the new world you are immigrants( and in most cases unwelcome by the natives) like most every one else….america like it or leave it.and to be honest i think that this country/continent would be better off without people like them…and don’t let the door hit you you know where on the way out.

    These people generally know nothing about Europe. They wouldn’t fit in there at all. Of course they’ll just blame “libruhls” or whatever.

    Yet again the haters of everything European American will have their fun by denigrating everything and anything that promotes White interests. Even the negroes have their “united NEGRO college fund” and exclusively Negroid institutions of education. Who else is going to help fund the education of impoverished white students?! The splc?! The naacp?! Enough of your obvious anti-white blathering…you “liberal left progressives” are showing your true colors with every “comment” to every white bashing article you publish..surprise ,surprise! You do realize that the time of reckoning is almost upon you…coming soon to a voters booth near you!

    Not to mention that the word “barbecue” is of recent Spanish origin (it was originally Barbacoa) and was even further back a Taino (Native American) word.

    To any COfCC members out there: you guys don’t even realize that if it weren’t for those groups of people you believe you are superior to, there would be no barbecue chicken for you to use to raise funds for your segregated academies? Also, do you like to play the banjo? Congratulations, your favorite instrument and its name both are of African origin. Eat okra much? That plant, and its name too, are of African origin. You would never have heard of it were it not for the African slaves who helped popularize it over here in the Americas.If you would take the time to read a few real (non-propagandistic) history books, you all would come to realize how wrong you were about both other cultures, and your own.

    It’s also ironic that these white segregationists are constantly ridiculing blacks for allegedly being fond of eating chicken, and yet how do they themselves (the segregationists) raise money for their little academy? That’s right; they hold a barbecue with a pit full of, you guessed it, CHICKEN! How hypocritical of them. What an “epic fail” moment.

    Wonder where the WCC got their “white heritage of sixty centuries” claim? Why did they say sixty centuries?

    Oh yeah, that’s right–sixty centuries is 6,000 years, which is the exact length of time the “Young Earthers” believe the earth has been around.

    Which means that the WCC believed that their ancestors were somehow created white, rather than all humans being descended from a common ancestor (which both the Bible and biologists agree upon).

    No wonder the WCC were so hateful toward African Americans and other minorities–they didn’t even view themselves as being part of the same species!

    No matter what the WCC says, when it comes down to matters of both science and faith, there is only one race: the human race. That’s something we can and should ALL agree upon, regardless of where we stand on the “creation vs. evolution debate”.

    I am very interested in being polite to WN who would want to debate on this forum so long as they are polite to those of opposing perspectives. I believe that all efforts should be made in that direction so as to have the “best of the best” WN drop in & debate their “logical premises” with those would like to participate.

    The way it appears, we don’t get a great many good debates going here becasue all those with a differing point of view believe they would not be permitted to present their perspective or be censored.
    That’s a shame because a great many people with opposing points of view who CAN compose an English sentence or formulate proper grammar don’t appear to be posting.
    Or perhaps…….there are not that many……(?)
    From what I have read the general level of education is not too high in a population of skinheads and the elite raw; dyed-in-the-wool bigot often has a “David Duke Doctorate”. So that when confronted by a young person who can debate, they utilize rejoinders such as “that’s a Jewish way of thinking” (even when said by a Muslim).

    Come on WN debaters…..let’s get to a raw intellectual level and see who can prove their case!

    I’d like to know what part of European culture and civilization these people are maintaining, or even if they’re aware of any aspect of said “white civilization,” in the fields of literature, arts, sciences, etc., not to mention any of the other civilizations they so readily disparage.

    These people have no culture whatsoever, unless you consider television viewing preferences and a mutual love of corn syrup as somehow being under the banner of civilization. And for them to somehow take credit for any aspect of any civilization of which I am aware of would be absolutely laughable, if their entire beings weren’t so utterly ugly.

    What a lovely picture in the article. I think I recognize some of the faces. From left to right it’s Uncle Goober, Jo Bob I, his son Jo Bob Jr., Billy Bob, Bobby Joe, and his father Gomer. I think the photo was taken shortly before they got into their, uh, satin pillowcases for a little evening recreation.
