I thought being a racist a-hole with a bad attitude was required when getting the job.

I agree! I was especially puzzled by the statement from Police Chief Isom that "I can guarantee you that none of my police officers who work here are members of the KKK." How can he be so sure when Elkins slipped under the radar. What a joke!

I know of a black Deputy Sheriff that hates white people, he will cut fellow blacks a break and turn around and arrest a white guy for the same minor thing.

I bet all it would take are phone records and credit card bills to nab the rest of them.

Just a few years ago a friend became a police officer. Within 6 months he would have nothing to do with any of his old friends, became a total ahole, and would only socialize with other cops.

Whites and blacks are very different, and apparently always will be, largely along the lines of social, and/or personal, mores. Martin Luther King said it best, "Do not judge us by the color of our skin, but the conduct/content of our character.” That is exactly how most blacks are judged. I am tired of so many comparisons between circumstances of whites and blacks suggesting some measure of unfairness. The most important or greatest civil right is to be free from violent crime!
Blacks in U. S. clearly have it much better than in Africa, or anywhere else in the world. How about what the Jews suffered during WW 2 ? There is no place in the entire world where blacks, or anyone else, have so many opportunities. Slavery over 200 years ago was the best thing to ever happen to present day blacks!! It got them to the best country in the entire world!! Blacks the world over would love to live here!! No present day black has "suffered" from slavery over 200 years ago, and it is doubtful that the slaves suffered. Now that they are free we never hear of any of them returning to Africa, or anywhere else their ancestors were from. Further their black ancestors had a lot to do with the slave trading as they rounded up slaves to sell abroad as slaves. Who knows, many may have volunteered.
The blacks have had hundreds of years to get civilized and conform to law abiding conduct, and many have!
I admire responsible and successful blacks, many of whom are known by their first name, such as Oprah, Tiger, Charles, Michael, Mohamed (Ali), etc. I admire all of the black sports announcers. Political correctness prevents us from calling a spade a spade.
There is an epidemic of black crime in the world. Everyone has a civil right to be free and safe from crime by blacks, especially violent crime. The civil rights movement had the wrong focus, as it should have condemned the blacks who are responsible for an epidemic of crime. The do gooder black “leaders” are not demonstrating against such conduct, as they should be!! They harm race relations considerably.(Specifically referring to “brothers” Al and Jessie)
Slavery was the best thing that ever happened to present day blacks. You don’t see them trying to go back to Africa.
Yet those from Viet Nam have been a tremendous credit to our great country, and show their appreciation by working hard, and acting civilized. I have a friend who is from Viet Nam who came over to our great country and couldn't speak a word of English. He started out working in kitchens of Chinese and Viet Nam restaurants, and ended up owning three. There is no place in the world with more opportunities and where life is better.
To whatever benefit it was to blacks to integrate, it was to the detriment of whites. When growing up I never remember fights on school grounds.
For your information the slaves did suffer. Long and hard. THey worked their asses off on a daily basis doing what the white slave master was too lazy to do his damn self. Of course, there are many benefits to living in America, but there are habits that started 200 years ago that have an affect on black society today. Black slave men were sold off from their families. Now black men have come accustomed to not sticking around. The slaves were fed the scraps from the master's dinner table. Now we have good, yet fattening soul food. The masters raped black women to create a separate race and turn us against each other. Now Arican-Americans compare themselves to a brown paper bag. So slavery has had bad impacts on African-Americans.
P.S. Just me, at least the Jews got an apology for the Holocaust. African-Americans haven't yet gotten an apology.

I didn't realize that the Post Office was allowed to release the contents of this man's P.O. Box.

If he had been receiving illegal mail such as child porn, that would be a different matter but KKK mailings, while most find them distasteful, aren't illegal.

Today's black men might also be getting the message of not sticking around from rap/hip hop music which promotes the concept of being a baby daddy.

This guy is going to be crucified every day for the rest of his life for going to a meeting and discussing his views with other people who share those views.
The meetings were on private property and consisted of people TALKING.
He never had any complaints at all while he was an Officer regarding what he does on his own time.
I hope that he gets himself a good shyster and sues the a-- off of everyone and anyone who is attemting to hang him from a cross for doing what any American should be able to do.HE DID NOT HURT ANYONE.
HE DID NOT PUBLICLY ADVOCATE HATE OR EXPRESS HAPPINESS BECAUSE PEOPLE OF A DIFFERENT RACE WERE MURDERED.
He got fu--ed for doing nothing except excersing his right to be with whomever he wanted to be with.
Hussein got the white house after spending twenty years with the leader of the black klan, getting maarried by the same fool and telling everyone that the racist ba--ard was his lifelong mentor.
This guy gets to be hung out to dry for doing what he wants on his own time.
Being a member of the KKK means that he adheres to their doctrine; the ideology of racism and whites being superior to others. Do you think he only believes this way at klan meetings while wearing the robe of a grand dragon? Huh, do you?

This guy should have never quit. If they had fired him they could have quite possibly lost in court. As long as he competently and professionally performs his job it should not matter, legally that is. If he was black and belonged to the Black Panthers would he have been treated the same???

For your information I am not a race baiter or whatever else you want to call me and I am definitely not a whiner. I find faults in people of all races not just my own. I know what is happening now. NOW we have just elected the first black president of the United States. NOW there are no more excuses for anybody in this country meaning anybody can be what they want to be if they set there minds to it. So no I will not stop my so called "whining". I feel for my distant relatives back in Africa because I have contributed to foundations in Africa. SO don't try to give me a history lesson.
