    No, and no. European Americans also known as "white" people in most circles seem have been give a godly status from some groups which make it seem like we are all racist and bringing down other groups. Even as we are trying ever harder to appeal to these circles of minorities. Maybe as minorities become the majority within the next 10-15 years, we will begin to see some type of balance between these racial groups which seem to be dominated by not "white people" but in actuality, "black people."

    I'm also not so certain as to the timing of this story. Why talk about it now? 12 years later??
    There's no greater irony than a Trump supporter pointing out hypocrisy; Unless it's Trump himself.

    Nope, this is just the failed argument that Blacks can not be racist because it has to do with wielding power...Well, that's just bunk.

In hindsight, you can see something there since you know that it's a WP group, but without that context, that name simply sounds like any one of a number of pro-Euro/American unity groups.
    A name like David Duke is self-explanatory for anyone who had paid attention to politics in the last two decades and especially LA politics. If he didn't know the group was founded and ran by David Duke he should have known.

    Re: Scalise Allegedly Spoke with White Supremacy Group [W:22]

    A good clue indicating He was well aware of the group that He was speaking too is His voting record. He voted against making MLK day a national holiday. When the Louisiana House voted in 2004, 90 members were in favor and Scalise was one of the six against. He knew it was going to be voted in yet He made a point to give em the middle finger. Pretty clear how He views non whites.

    This story prompted me to research what it takes to get labeled as a hate group by the splc. Apparently all it takes is to be a white group that advocate the same things black groups do.
