Wow...nobody thinks that "redneck" is offensive or the term "white trash"? I do not agree with racism but I do believe that people have the freedom to express their views whether it is deemed appropriate, or right or wrong. What do our troops fight for? Freedom. Even if the freedom is to allow people to be stupid. My husband served overseas so that people have the right to be jerks and act like idiots...or so we sometimes think.

Funny, maybe he should be more concerned about the message the young black community sends. Look at some of the attire they where.

This is the stupidest thing I have ever heard, tell kennedy to raise the rent. nobody can purchase a property and have an illegal covenant in it.

closed for renovations.

new boss, new rules. new rent. he can still keep the shop if he pays the rent.

shoot the azzholee, that will fix the until he dies clause and close the business, a win win.

But of course if the guy sold black power shirts and "kill whitey" bumper stickers it would be perfectly all right.

The only reason David Kennedy wants this shop closed down is so he can turn the property into a church thus avoid paying taxes on the property that is the bottom line here.

Blacks don't want to kill whites...only whites want to kill blacks. Why is that?

I agree raise the rent and if they get behind enforce the eviction process. It can be very difficult to make a person move out if they are paying their rent. However, in Virginia and Maryland you can ask for the property back with no reason when the lease is up.

Extremist are in all races, genders and beliefs. He should walk away and work on his own racist issues.

There are all black African american shops out there as well, but I do not see him trying to shut them down. He just wants the property, and therefore is using the racist card to get it.

He owns the property already,but a stipulation in the sale gives the former owner the use of it until his deathy. He is using it by running the KKK shop,thus pizzing off the Preacherman. Otherwise he is within his legal rights to has his little shop of hate...... Preacherman would do well to tend to his flock and wait for the old coot to croak.

They don't promote hate at all. The reason for NAACP is because of all the hatred and discrimination white folks created back in the day towards blacks. So blame your white folks in the past.
