Park officials at Stone Mountain, Georgia have plans to erect a monument to the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. on top of the mountain. Predictably, the confederate heritage movement people have problems with it. And their problems are expressed in their own racist way. What do you expect from that crowd anyway? We have word that some Civil Rights activists are opposed to the plan as well, saying a memorial to slave-owning confederate traitors doesn’t deserve to be anywhere near a memorial to Reverend King. Well, I have to admit, they have a point.
So when they claim their aim is heritage, not hate, remember their heritage consists of hate. And when they say racism has nothing to do with it, they’re lying.
I’m sure there must be some neoconfederates somewhere who aren’t racists. I just haven’t found any yet.
