Editorial: "Not in our Town"

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Earlier this week some 200 plus Tallassee residents awoke to find fliers folded inside Ziploc plastic bags, weighted down with rocks tossed onto their property. When they opened these baggies they found a one-page recruitment flier from the Traditional American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.

On the flier, the KKK was very specific about who they are looking to recruit -- "white people to stand up for our race" and those that have become aware that "our American way of life is under attack from the onslaught of multiculturalism."

Oddly the KKK felt it necessary to state boldly they are NOT a "hate group" or "domestic terrorists."

OK, white hoods and burning crosses are full of love and openness, wouldn't you say? Absolutely not!

How does spewing hatred towards anyone other than those that are white put you in any other category other than a hate group? It doesn't -- hate and discrimination no matter the spin is evil and must be stamped out at every turn.

I was proud and not surprised to see the residents of Tallassee react negatively to this intrusion from a most unwelcomed guest. I hope the KKK got their message and gets my message loud and clear – we don't want you around here.

    The subject of legalizing marijuana is more openly discussed these days, but I sense I will be long gone before our state ever passes such legislation.

    I can’t begin to thank all the people in Montgomery who went out of their way to make an outsider feel at home. In only a year and a half we have made lifelong friends, friends who we would count on with our lives and our children’s lives. But it is the South, and that is what you do.
