Don't believe the hype. Morris the sleaze Dees is as
racist and sexist as they come. In fact he makes many
of the people he calls racist,etc look tame when compared
to Dees. He's just very good at lying about it and saying the
exact opposite of what he does ( why am I reminded of the ADL
all of a sudden?). Most Americans have gotten wise to him and
other ultra-bigoted, violent prone "anti-Racists" thugs.
He's "reports" are as flawed and bigoted as Michael Moore's endless
anti-White, Anti-America, anti-dixie,etc slant in his movies.
There's more diversity at the SCV meeting than all the "diversity"
at Dee's country club plantation.
Well, I hope you're doing well.
H.K. Never retreat, never surrender.

Please don't take everything that Morris Dees reports in his trash magazine
to heart. Please write him and tell him that when I enter Montgomery once again
on my Re-Union March Across Dixie that I shall stop once again at his front
door and challenge him on all the complete inaccuracies of his long time rhetoric
and I hope that he does not turn tail and run like he did when I confronted
him at Western Carolina College; and please tell him that I am now sitting at
my computer in the office of the Southern Legal Resource Center, and I opened
the front door with my very own key. I don't think that those individuals who
served on the Board of Advisors of the SLRC would take too kindly to accusations
either. I am now the Chairman of the Board of Advisors Emeritus , and am enjoying
that role quiet nicely. Also please tell him that I am also enjoying my role
as President of Southern Heritage 411, and am very happy to see that he is still
keeping an eye on me, but that I too have an eye on him. I remember the statement
that he made that he never took the Bar exam, and was awarded a law license
because he was a White man. I wonder just what all the people who have gone
up against him and lost think about that , and I will ask the Alabama Bar Association
it as soon as I get down to the light weights which I consider him to be.

Lonely Black Neo-Confederate Furls His Flag
The neo-Confederate movement isn't known for its racial diversity, but there
long has been one dedicated black man willing to fight for the Southern cause:
H.K. Edgerton. A constant fixture at protests in support of Confederate symbols,
Edgerton at one point walked from his home in Asheville, N.C., to Austin, Texas,
dressed all the while in Confederate gray and toting a battle flag.
In March, after being accused by white neo-Confederate colleagues of financial
improprieties, Edgerton quit the fight and furled his flag.
Edgerton served for years as the lone member of the board of advisers of the
Southern Legal Resource Center (SLRC), a position without pay or authority.
In that role, Edgerton provided a thin defense against the charges of white
supremacy that are regularly levied against SLRC Chief Trial Counsel Kirk Lyons,
who was married at the Idaho compound of the neo-Nazi Aryan Nations and has
long had close ties to major racist figures.
Edgerton's apparent selflessness made him popular among neo-Confederates, particularly
members of the Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV), a Southern heritage group
that awarded him an honorary membership even though he did not have the requisite
Now, Edgerton is more infamous than popular. Elijah Coleman, a prominent activist
in the Georgia SCV, wrote a widely distributed E-mail in early March accusing
Edgerton of selling hundreds of SCV-provided battle flags at a NASCAR event
and pocketing the funds. Coleman also claimed that Edgerton was demanding huge
sums for a new car, even after he was offered one costing $3,000.
"I began to see a new H. K. obsessed with money as he spoke of everyone
ripping him off on past visits by him to Florida and other states. Money was
the main thing on his mind," wrote Coleman. "I realized he was now
in the heritage fight only for the money."
In response, Edgerton sent out an open letter announcing that he was leaving
the movement after more than a decade and complaining of his treatment. Edgerton
insisted that he received few funds from his compatriots, having selflessly
given away his time and impoverished himself only to be called "a money
grubber." Edgerton said he would shut down his neo-Confederate group, Southern
Heritage 411, on April 14.
Lyons offered a halfhearted defense of Edgerton on the SCV's Southern Herald
mailing list, calling him "a close friend." But Lyons also wrote that
"the SLRC is not and has not been involved in any of H.K.'s travel or appearances
for some time." Lyons added that Edgerton is no longer with the SLRC.
Though avowedly saddened to give up the cause, Edgerton did point proudly to
the "historic H.K. Edgerton Shirt" produced by Dixie Outfitters as
a high point of his neo-Confederate career, noting that he was "the first
living person" represented in the firm's "Modern Confederate Hero
