Race Relation Summit / Comment / An Open Letter
Dear Ms. Lunelle,
While I probably should be reporting on the events of Confederate Memorial Day in Marion, Alabama, and Savannah, Georgia, to include my visit to the Living Science School in Woodstock, Georgia, and the appearance in the former Dixie Stampede Parade in Knoxville, Tennessee, I feel that I must turn my attention to the proposed Race Relations Summit in Washington at the President's beckoning.
This so called summit on race relations is no good if those of us in the Confederate community are not there. And most importantly, if the sacrilege and carnage associated with tearing down the Cenotaphs of our fallen dead is not stopped immediately, and those that have been removed replaced in their place of prominence to include the Southern Cross placed back in honor on the Cenotaph in Columbia, South Carolina.
Any so called Race Relations Summit can only be viewed as a public relations farce meant to sanitize the wrong perpetrated against the South and its people. In a letter to then President George W. Bush in 2007, I would call for a similar action, only to fall on deaf ears.
Many of us in the South voted for and supported President Trump, and reached out to him for help against the sacrilege we now face because of a photoshopped picture from the press and their enabling of the plan of the mentally deranged Dylan Roof to start a race war. His response was to let the people of the states handle it.
How can we when those duly elected to represent the people cower down to the threats and attacks of domestic terrorists like ANTIFA, Black Lives Matter, the Southern Poverty Law Center, the NAACP, and any other antagonists that George Soros can muster together?
All one has to do is to look at Tampa, Lakeland, Hollywood, and especially Bradenton, Florida, where scientific polls from the people were ignored that supported not moving the Cenotaphs, and even commissioners and council members were so intimidated that they refused to vote either their own will, or that of the people because they were afraid of the aforementioned terrorists.
I can only conclude that any meaningful dialogue of race relations in the South must include ambassadors of our choice. Otherwise, any dialogue coming from this entity will fall on deaf ears. In the Southland of America, we have had enough of being the scapegoat of the causative of racism in the whole of American life.
I call on Save Southern Heritage to draft a response of this correspondence to the President. God bless you!
