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.

Apparently, you can’t camp while Black in Mississippi, well, I guess you can, but you take the chance of getting shot by an elderly hillbilly-looking version of Barbara Bush or the Queen of England.
That almost happened to a Black couple who decided to go camping in rural Mississippi, in a town called, Starkville, which is around Oktibbeha County Lake. The area they heard is a good destination for people who like to go fishing or swimming.
A few minutes after the couple(Jessica and Franklin Richardson) arrived, they claim they were confronted by an elderly White woman, who started pointing a very large revolver at them.
According to The Root Dot Com:
“Not five mins later a truck pulls up and a white lady screams at us, she then jumps out of her truck with a Gun. And proceeded to point it at the 3 of us, simply because we didn’t make reservations,” Jessica wrote on the Facebook video’s caption.
The camp grounds were reportedly privately owned by a company called Kampgrounds of America, and they allegedly needed a reservation before entering the area, that lack of information nearly cost them their lives.

The 2008 election of Barack Obama, America’s first African-American President, and the current economic instabilities America now faces, has given new life to white supremacist terrorist groups. As of 2014 , according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, there were almost a thousand active hate groups in the United States. And with white supremacist propaganda on the Internet, indoctrinating a new generation of angry white youth, white supremacist terrorism has spread beyond organized white hate groups, like the lone wolf suicide bomber, in some desert in the Middle East, America has recently seen her own form of lone wolf terrorism, perfect example is Dylann Roof, who on june 17, 2015, assassinated nine innocent African-American people, including South Carolina state Senator Clementa C. Pinckney, at the Emanuel African Methodist Episopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina, and unfortunately in the near future the Southern Poverty Law Center believes that lone wolf and white terrorism as collective is on the rise in America.
So be vigilant and prepare yourself, tactically and strategically to be ready if the shit goes down.
