UPDATE: Interrupting the weekend blogging break…
I should have known that if somebody had this in his memory bank, it would be James Fulford at Vdare:
One of the local blacks who rescued Denny was not only ostracized by other blacks, his life was threatened, and he had to leave town. Here’s an LA Times piece, ten years after the riots…
I’m not posting more because I want you to go over and read the whole thing.
Partly because you’ll probably get a pop-up explaining that a surge in traffic has left Vdare servers strained, so they’re doing a fundraiser.
I link to them all the time. They’ve been talking immigration way before Trump ever thought of it.
James Fulford writes:
The Knoxville News Sentinel quotes Law School Dean Melanie D. WIlson as calling Reynolds’ post an “irresponsible use of his platform” and saying, “My colleagues and I in the university’s leadership support peaceful disobedience and all forms of free speech, but we do not support violence or language that encourages violence.”
Apparently not even in self-defense.
(PS: The black man who helped Denny was ostracized by other blacks. I’ll try to track down that interview. If you find it first, please let me know.)
