Hope they jail the bastard & throw away the key!Virginia man who plowed his truck into Black Lives Matter crowd is the head of the state’s Ku Klux Klan
Over the weekend, a Virginia man was arrested for driving his truck into a crowd of protesters. It has now been revealed that the accused, Harry H. Rogers, is also the head of the Virginia chapter of the Ku Klux Klan.
WTVR News reported Monday that Rogers was charged by police with attempted malicious wounding (a felony), destruction of property (also a felony), and assault and battery (a misdemeanor) after the incident. When he was arrested, Rogers confessed to officers he is the president of the Ku Klux Klan in the state and claimed to be the highest-ranking member of the Klan that is not in prison.
“The accused, by his own admission and by a cursory glance at social media, is an admitted leader of the Ku Klux Klan and a propagandist for Confederate ideology,” said Henrico County Commonwealth’s Attorney Shannon Taylor in a statement. “We are investigating whether hate crimes charges are appropriate.”

CHICAGO — The firm building the Obama Presidential Center suspended operations Thursday after a noose was found at the site, and it offered a $100,000 reward to help find who was responsible.
Lakeside Alliance, a partnership of Black-owned construction firms, said it reported the incident to police and “will provide any assistance required to identify those responsible.”
“We have zero tolerance for any form of bias or hate on our worksite. Anti-bias training is included in our onboarding process and reiterated during site-wide meetings. We are suspending all operations onsite in order to provide another series of these trainings and conversations for all staff and workers,” the firm said.
Former President Barack Obama’s foundation also released a statement.
“This shameless act of cowardice and hate is designed to get attention and divide us. Our priority is protecting the health and safety of our workforce,” the statement said.
The Chicago Police Department is aware of the noose and the matter is under investigation, said Sgt. Rocco Alioto, a department spokesman.
An alliance spokeswoman, Lara Cooper, said she could not comment on whether it suspects a worker at the site and how the pause will affect the work.
City work to prepare for construction began in spring 2021 with the an official groundbreaking the following September.
The foundation has said the center is slated to open in 2025. Organizers expect it to attract about 750,000 visitors a year.
It will sit on 7.7 hectares of the 291-hectare of Jackson Park, named for the nation’s seventh president, Andrew Jackson. Significantly, it will be located near the Obama family home and where the former president started his political career on the city’s South Side.
The city will own the center under the terms of a 2018 ordinance approved by the Chicago City Council.
The initial cost was projected at $500 million, but documents released by the Obama Foundation last summer showed the cost had climbed to roughly $830 million. Funds are being raised through private donations.

A white middle school teacher in Texas was fired after he made racist comments to his students.
Video of the incident, which surfaced on social media, shows the man telling his class — many of whom are Black — that his race is dominant, NBC News reported.
“Deep down in my heart, I’m ethnocentric, which means I think my race is the superior one,” he says to the students.
“So white is better than all?” one student asks.
“Let me finish,” the teacher replies. “I think everybody thinks that. They’re just not honest about it.”
Another student challenges the teacher, “I’m not racist, though. I like all types of kinds.”
The teacher responds, “Did I say I don’t like people?”
A third student asks for clarification. “Wait, so you said you are what? You are a racist?” to which the teacher says, “I think everybody is a racist at that level.”
The same student tells him: “No. But you said you are a racist.”
The teacher replies, “I did. I did, yeah, I’m trying to be honest.”
The unidentified man worked in Pflugerville, a suburb in northern Austin.
“Last Friday, Nov. 11, Pflugerville ISD officials were made aware of an inappropriate conversation a teacher at Bohls Middle School had with students during an advisory class,” Pflugerville Independent School District (PfISD) Superintendent Dr. Douglas Killian wrote in a statement.
“As of Monday morning, Nov. 14, the teacher in question is no longer employed by Pflugerville ISD and we are actively looking for a replacement.”
Killian apologized for any “undue stress or concern” caused by the teacher’s remarks, and to the parents of the children who were captured on camera without their knowledge.
Brian Hennington, whose 11-year-old son goes to the school but is not in the fired teacher’s class, went to the school after his wife Monique saw the video posted on Facebook.
“The reason why we were appalled is because it was offensive and we definitely wanted to make sure that our voice was heard,” he told NBC News. “I think more parents need to stand up, especially the parents who had kids in the classroom.”
As for the teacher, Hennington added, “You’re not hired to bring your opinions into the classroom, especially when you have impressionable minds. Those kinds of exploratory conversations, that’s for the parents to expose their kids to.”
The school superintendent described the discussion as "inappropriate, inaccurate, and unacceptable" and said "this type of interaction will not be tolerated in any" of the district's schools.nbcnews.com

Nope I quoted the article and it didn't read that way to me he could have been any color with what he was trying to say he just happened to be whiteDid you see the video on this? Yeah, it was racist and to the non white kids in his class, they 'lost respect' for him and now suspect his grading and teaching them because of his admission.
Sure, everyone is racist; the thing is trying NOT to be.
