RACISM REARS ITS HEAD AT CONSERVATIVE CONFERENCE
I went to my first Conservative Political Action Conference
in 1987 and have at least shown up at the exhibit hall most years
since then. This is the first year of which I'm aware that a group
evidencing sympathy for white racism exhibited at CPAC.
in 1990, the pro-segregation Council of Conservative Citizens
had its origins outside Washington, D.C., a member stated. It
has chapters all over the country and publishes a newspaper called
Citizens Informer, which includes many advertisements of the Confederate
Flag. One advertisement is entitled "WHITE PRIDE...With Hard Work."
column entitled "The Africanization of Sports and Public Schools,"
the columnist stated, "A major factor in the monopoly by black
athletes of our major sports is that many white potential athletes
refuse to enter a sport that is dominated by blacks and to live
in the close personal and intimate contact with blacks that is
required on athletic teams. White athletes take up other sports
such as golf, soccer, swimming or hockey or become spectators
or sports fans."
Council of Conservative Citizens held a "National Conservative
Unity" meeting in Winston-Salem, North Carolina November 12, at
which newspaper columnists Samuel Francis and Joseph Sobran were
the main speakers.
Taylor, author of Paved With Good Intentions: The Failure of Race
Relations in Contemporary America says, "The Council of Conservative
Citizens is the only organization I know of that does effective
political work for the European-American majority. It deserves
the support of every American who is concerned about the future
of his country."
Congressman Webb Franklin says, "Conservatives need to be united
and the Council of Conservative Citizens is the perfect vehicle."
