WHITE MAN WHO TERRORIZED BLACK FAMILY WITH BURNING CROSS IN FRONT OF THEIR HOME GETS 11 YEARS IN PRISON

By: Leon Kwasi Kuntuo-Asare

On Tuesday, a White supremacist man from Mississippi was sentenced to 11 years in prison, because he and a friend burned a cross in front of the house of a Black family to racially intimidate them.

Months ago Louis Revette, a 38-year-old man and his co-conspirator pleaded guilty to performing the crimes they were charged with, which included the federal felonies of using fire in the commission of a federal felony, interference with housing rights and a federal civil rights violation from the incident that happened in October 2017.

“I want everyone to know I’m not proud of what happened,” he told people in the court. “I hate what I did. I cannot even believe I did that. I’ve never done anything like that before in my life.”

“Those who instill fear and terror into our neighbors and our fellow citizens because of the color of their skin will face the full weight and force of the law from the U.S. attorney’s office,’ Mike Hurst, the U.S. attorney for Southern Mississippi, said in a statement from the Justice Department. “There is absolutely no place in our society or our country for this type of behavior, and we will do all that we can to prevent these racist acts and bring to justice those who are intent on committing these crimes.”

Revette’s co-conspirator, Graham Williams is scheduled to sentenced on November, 5 2019, and he could face up to 30 years in prison.

TENNESSEE GOVERNOR BILL LEE SIGNED A PROCLAMATION GIVING WHITE SUPREMACIST CONFEDERATE, KKK LEADER HIS OWN HOLIDAY

By: Leon Kwasi Kuntuo-Asare

Tennessee governor, Bill Lee signed a proclamation that declared July 13, as Nathan Bedford Forest Day.

Who was Nathan Bedford Forest you ask? Well, he was a treacherous and treasonous American who betrayed his country to fight for the treasonous Confederate army.

He was also a slave trader, the first Grand Wizard of the KKK, and he was responsible for the Fort Pillow Massacre, which occurred after the Battle of Fort Pillow, when General Forest and his troops massacred Black Union soldiers and their White officers, who were attempting to surrender at the time.

According to CBS NEWS:

According to the Tennessee code, the governor must declare January 19 as “Robert E. Lee Day”; February 12 as “Abraham Lincoln Day”; March 15 as “Andrew Jackson Day”; June 3 as “Memorial or Confederate Decoration Day”; July 13 as “Nathan Bedford Forrest Day”; and November 11, as “Veterans’ Day.”

“I signed the bill because the law requires that I do that and I haven’t looked at changing that law,” Lee said Thursday.

That being said there have been governors in the past who refused to sign proclamations, like Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts, who refused to sign a proclamation for the book “This Blessed Earth: A Year in the Life of an American Family Farm,” which is about farming and family because he believed the author and journalist Ted Genoways, was too critical of President Donald Trump.

By: Leon Kwasi Kuntuo-Asare

Some local leaders are on high alert and believe something similar to the horrors that happened in Charlottesville, Virginia, during the Unite the Right Rally in 2017 could occur this coming Memorial Day weekend.

Over this forthcoming holiday weekend, thousands of White supremacist extremists are expected to March in the city of Dayton, Ohio, for a Klu Klux Klan rally, and they are expected to be confronted by anti-racism protesters like Antifa and The New Black Panther Party For Self-Defense.

According to thegrio:

“Courthouse Square will be a powder keg on the 25th,” Rabbi Ari Ballaban, director of Dayton’s Jewish Community Relations Council, warned in a statement. “Not only will the KKK be present, but there will likely be thousands of angry counter-protestors there, many bused in from around the region.”
