Since when is it a councilman’s/ mayor’s job to prevent the peaceful assembly of citizens? American Renaissance welcomes people of any race or ethnicity to participate. The same cannot be said of the Congressional Black Caucus – which you support. Amren is clearly the more tolerant, and peaceful, of the two and yet you take it upon yourself to use your political clout to oppress Amren and not the CBC.
Mr. Cannon, if you believe the SPLC and their take on Amren, then I’ve got a bridge to sell you in Brooklyn. Amren is not a “hate group”, does not condone violence and is not “white supremacist”. It is certainly not anti-Semitic. As a leader, it is time you look past skin color and allow people of all races to congregate peacefully.
In the meantime, with or without your blessings, we shall meet in Charlotte. Your actions, and the actions of the real hate groups, in trying to stifle freedom of speech and assembly, show who the actual oppressors are and who the actual persecuted minorities are. Hint: you are not a “persecuted minority”.
See you in Charlotte,
