For Your Opinion

I saw this posting on a local Topix page and thought you ought to put your two cents in it because it is mentioning your name...this thread evidently started back when we were fighting for our flag at Allen Central High School in Eastern, Kentucky. The newest posts are the latter ones. Pay close attention to the person called "Off the trail". He is the one posting derogatory things about you. I will include his posting and the link to the site for you to see. He obviously copied and pasted the first part and added his "opinion" to the end.
Born-again Confederate" H.K. Edgerton (Valerie Downes)
He'll be noticed, partly because the man in gray is black. Edgerton's ancestors were slaves. He stepped down just four years ago from chairing his local NAACP chapter. Now he's on the board of Black Mountain's Southern Legal Resource Center, run by white supremacist attorney Kirk Lyons, who inspired Edgerton to become what Lyons calls a "born-again Confederate."
Since then, Edgerton has become a darling of the white-supremacist wing of the "heritage" movement. His flag-waving protests have drawn renewed attention to a highly unorthodox version of history in which Africans were brought to America (in Edgerton's own words) as a gift from "God in his infinite wisdom," and "the only one who cared about the African was the white man in the South."
His favorite white man in the South stands to benefit handsomely from the march. The bulk of the $2 million Edgerton hopes to raise will go to Lyons' "heritage" law firm; the rest goes to the Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV), the traditionally moderate "heritage" group that recently took a turn toward blatant racism (see A War Within).
Ok,"check this out", as you can see I did check this man out. Read this cut and paste article above and take note of who this man's best buddies are now. Also note this is an intellience report gathered by our own government. I find it interesting that before HK Edgerton became a revived confederate, he "stepped" down from the NAACP chairman position of his local chapter. I'm going to see if this retirement was a factor in his new birth. I'll get back to you on that, but,.. this is rather questionable behavior from a black so I'm using the salt shaker here.
This black man sees slavery import as a rescue mission carried out with best interests of blacks being the motivator in white hearts. WHOA!!! Some one needs to check his medicine cabinet. He's being used big time by the supremacists, quote, "White supremacist attorney Kirk Lyons "inspired" Edgerton to become a born again confederate."
It's plain this man is a pawn.
