Just ignore them!

Police in Orlando are asking people to stay home during a neo-Nazi march planned for the downtown area on Saturday.

Community leaders also urged people to stay away. “If a fire has no oxygen, it goes out. Don’t fuel the fire,” said the Rev. Charles Jackson, pastor of Hurst Chapel African Methodist Episcopal Church.

The National Socialist Movement says they’re rallying in Orlando to protest crimes against white citizens. The march will go through Parramore
(a neighborhood with a significant and deeply rooted African-American culture) and end with a rally outside the federal courthouse.

Read the Orlando Sentinel story here.

Update: A state senator says he plans to combat the march. Gary Siplin announced Thursday that he's hosting a love, praise and prayer rally
at 1 p.m. Saturday in front of the police station. He said his message would be one of unity, not racial hate.

"To praise the Lord to bring down blessings, to go out and share love with the community. And then be cool, for the citizens, it's under control. Don't do anything, we're going to show them love. We plan to have signs that say, 'love conquers hate,' 'God loves neo-Nazis,' 'all Americans are immigrants,' things like that, positive things," Siplin said.

I think "African American" and "culture" are a bit conradictory.

It is, however, an area filled with collapsing, boarded up buildings, people dealing drugs on the corners, and prostitutes openly working the streets. And while all of that is certainly characteristically "African American", it can hardly be considered "cultured". LOL

Have you heard of the book "Nickled and Dimed"? I'm reading it at the moment and you might find it interesting. Check it out if you get a chance.

Actually..Bill buys the niggerhouses, fixs them up and rents them out. He does not rent to drug dealers,hookers and other vermin. I guess that's being racist huh?

I think the best TV news story I ever wrote was following a KKK rally in Wilson, North Carolina. The anchor read "The Ku Klux Klan marched in downtown Wilson this afternoon. Nothing worth reporting happened."

end of story.
