This is a great story and thanks to Ted Bird for raising our awareness. Hate, conflict, fear and prejudice know no boundaries. We're seeing it happen all over again today; much of it promoted on cable TV.

The best thing we can all do is to pay attention and speak out against it. If not, organizations such as this will surely take hold one day.

There is as lot of hate going around today-more than I have seen in the past 60 years. This hate is the hate of one ideology toward another.

These KKK crackpots also hate southern Italians. To that I say come on over to Sicily and try to burn a cross. When we are done with you you will be smoking like a cheap cigar.

Back around 1980 I learned that the Klan was active in Brattleboro in the 1950's. I was rather shocked.

The KKK and the neo-nazis have been discredited. But the black and hispanics and every other ethic group has lawyers and politicians in their back pocket.

Where are the defenders of traditional white culture??? That is what I want to know.

The multi-cultural miscegenators have their cult-hero in Obamarx who is not qualified to be president. Thank God for the pro-civilization leaders who are fighting back against the rock-drug-sex counter-culture of the left lunatics.

Hey Vermonters, what's the secret to discouraging minorities from living in Vermont? Perhaps Howard Dean could host a how to town meeting on the subject.

It's a little disturbing that the Blank Panthers are getting a pass. We have essentially ended the KKK. Why not them. Same boat, different color.

Blacks make up for roughly 1% of the total population of Vermont
which is less than the Hispanic and Asian population in the state... Now what is 1% of 300,000 Billy Bob Redneck?????? "Times Up Brain Boy"!!!!! That would be 3000....

WOW, 3000 Black people spread out over 9000 square miles!!!!!
My theory is that they are there for the entertainment factor because they have never witnessed so many WHITE Folk acting like Ghetto Folk.... It's also part of a federally sponsored program where blacks are sent into rural areas like Vermont, to teach you white folk how to raise a family of 8 on $100 a week sense you like breeding your sister so much.....

Now don't tell anybody, but I hear tell these folks have a liking
for chicken so ya better hide your sexual playmate!!!!!

What Billy Bob and his family use for sexual pleasure, aka
critters, is also used by people in the hood as a source
of culinary delight if mixed with the appropriate amount of
heat and lard/fat back.....
