    Klansman Running for Idaho Sheriff

    Klansman Running for Idaho Sheriff - Views on race won't be an issue, white supremacist claims

    Is it ok to call this guy a racist? Or would that be overplaying the race card?

    I do not see him getting elected.People will only focus on the fact he is a racist,but not just any kind of racist but a member of a anti-American former terrorist organization. How can anyone in their right mind think this man can actually carry out his duties as sheriff without any bias or prejudice?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Because, good James, he is "a concerned citizen." That implies that everything will be alright!

    Was someone like Robert Carlyle Byrd (Congressman) a racist?
    It is overplaying the race card.

    Depends. Are we going by time period? How minorities viewed his life and death? What entirety of values he held throughout his life? Or the ones he had at death?
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Can we simply accept at face value that this guy is a member of the KKK?

    So was Byrd, but he admitted he was wrong.

    Byrd also said, in 2005, "I know now I was wrong. Intolerance had no place in America. I apologized a thousand times ... and I don't mind apologizing over and over again. I can't erase what happened.
    Robert Byrd - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I'll accept this guy when he admits he was wrong. He hasn't yet.

    How many non-racists you know that join racists organizations?
