Conversation In The Streets
Dear Ms. Lunelle,
As I stood with the Southern Cross in hand, a young lady from the small crowd that now surrounded me would ask "Mr. HK, I read that you were in disagreement with the outcome of the trial of Maya Little who defaced the Silent Sam monument. Could you expound a little more about your position?"
Judge Cabe and the prosecutor, in my opinion, stepped away from their judicial duties and allowed this farce of a trial to become an event for trying and convicting the South for making an honorable stand against a great evil that descended upon its region illegally.

And for those who use slavery as a weapon of choice against the South and its people, Cabe handed an invitation to break the law, and should step down or be relieved of duty by the State Attorney General/Governor. Along with the prosecutor, Cabe, in effect, nullified the laws of North Carolina established by the people, i.e. monument protection laws, Historic Commissions.
What these White folk guilters like Judge Cabe, and those of like minds, don't understand is that those of us who are descendants of Southern slaves are truly family of the Southern white man. It was his ancestors that gave them his language and his God for their moral compass as they went into the church places with the Honorable Rev. R.L. Dabney of Prince Edward County, Virginia, to pray for the safety of Marse Kirby Smith and his sidekick, Alexander, slave and Aid de Camp of General Smith, boyhood friends who grew up in the same house together - a scene playing out all over the South!
Congratulations and kudos to the student honor court that did what was in their power to condemn this criminal, Ms. Little!
For the bravery and courage of this integrated military against overwhelming odds to protect its homeland and the rule of law of the National Constitution, the women of the South built Cenotaphs to memorialize their lives.
Should I be able to raise the funds, I shall post their colors once again at the base of Silent Sam this very week and hope that if there is a speech at the unveiling of its return, that I am one of the presenters.
Then came: "Mr. Edgerton, what do you think about the young black kids who went to the White House on October 20, 2018, as a part of what was deemed 'The Young Black Leaders Summit?"
"I was very proud of them, and the President for having them," was my reply.
God bless you!
