There is no place in society for this. The KKK took the Bible and used it to systematically beat an entire race of people, actually two races, Blacks and Jews. The best way to close this shop down is by simply not buying from it. Let it go out of business and go extinct.

I see that on Road Runners Home Page, that South Carolina once again has brought more attention to itself. Way to go... no wonder. Have a nice day.

while i think this store and it's operator are despicable, i don't think they are breaking any laws, are they? "freedom of speech" means freedom for the bigot to speak, too.
do people really shop at this store? heh heh heh, some of south Carolina's finest, i'm sure.

Don't you know freedom of speech is only useful when it doesn't offend anyone?

Unfortunately I don't think he can just shut it down, unless he had a rental agreement stating what type of business the lease holder can run.

Simply, don't shop there.

LOL... Sure beat the beast by stoopping down to it's level. The property owner has the right idea, do it legally. No sense someone going to jail for arson. His business can't be making that much money and his legal expenses would no doubt aid in shutting him down.

I pray to God, people in the KKK are Not the best of S.C. They bring Shame and Disgrace upon the State of S.C. They're called Redneck Trugs!

if it's OK to burn this store down...is it OK to burn down the Black Expo?...the KKK store makes soceity feel uncomfortable but it is the beauty of America...being able to believe what you want to believe...even if it offends people....sooooo...if there can be a black expo...let these guys have their store....They aren't breaking any laws...just like there are no laws broken with the Black Expo, or BET, or Black Miss America...etc....

I don't like the idea of the store, but here's the questions....Did the pastor not look at the property before he bought it? Did he buy the property so he could have the store shut down?

Underhay,

The market place will shut this store down if no one buys from it. Then we don't have freedom of speech/expression concerns by involving the courts. Seems like a plan to me.
