Confederate flag fight leads to racist fliers targeting Mississippi NAACP official

Published

on

The president of a Mississippi chapter of the NAACP has been targeted by name in racist fliers circulated in the town of Ocean Springs, local TV station WLOX reports.

Curley Clark was named in the neon green fliers addressed to “all white people of Ocean Springs,” which were stuck to homes, mailboxes and vehicles. It laid out a wild conspiracy for “ending the white race.” The flier said that “interbreeding” and removal of Confederate monuments would be the way to do this.

The fliers directed people to a YouTube video made by Lana Lokteff, a white supremacist Russian-American based in Oregon.

The fliers also targeted “communists,” “homosexuals” and “liberals.”

The racist flier left in Ocean Springs, Mississippi.

Clark said that a fight over removing the state of Mississippi’s flag, the last in the U.S. to include the Confederate battle flag’s saltire, from the city was the source of the strife.

A group called Ocean Springs United is seeking to have the flg taken down in the city, which is more liberal than most of the state.

“Our state flag is emblematic of the hate and vitriol in those flyers. We, as a community, cannot stand in agreement with racists. Criticizing the message and sharing its symbol is hypocritical. Take the flag down,” the group said.

The city’s mayor called the flier-makers “racist cowards” and asked anyone with surveillance cameras in the area to check them for images that show who delivered the fliers.

Published

On MSNBC Saturday, former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci warned that President Donald Trump's toxicity on race relations will only worsen in the run-up to the election in November.

"You were in charge, for a brief time, but for communications from this White House, and it does seem that Trump is going there because that's where he thinks he has to go," said host Joy Reid. "92 percent of African-Americans, not surprisingly, disapprove of Donald Trump's handling of race. But even 57 percent of white Americans disapprove of his handling of race relations. There's a lot of white marchers out there, marching for Black Lives Matter. Has he miscalculated and misread white people, at least the majority of them, in this moment?"

In an ad released by Republicans Voter Against Trump, the president was accused of turning the U.S. into a "banana republic" after he commuted the sentence of Roger Stone who was convicted of multiple felonies.

The ad also notes that a "criminal who lies to protect Trump goes free."

Published

On Saturday's edition of MSNBC's "AM Joy," Pulitzer Prize-winning Trump biographer David Cay Johnston predicted that the Supreme Court's decision on President Donald Trump's tax returns will lead to an indictment from New York prosecutors.

"What do you think might be out there?" asked host Joy Reid.

"Well, Donald Trump has already had two income tax fraud trials by the state of New York and the city of New York," said Johnston. "They were civil fraud, not criminal fraud. The New York Times in October of 2018, in this brilliant project on Trump's taxes based on records we know came from his niece — without question, he and his siblings are major-league tax cheats."
