As a blogger and videographer, in Kentucky, I've done my best to document the political events, in Kentucky, with photos and video, and in doing so I've had the opportunity to shoot video of overt white racist like "Imperial Wizard" Ron Edwards, Jarred Hensley Vice President of the Supreme White Alliance and, what I consider, the the more discreet racist, at Tea Party events in Kentucky.
My journey documenting racism started, in Kentucky November 2008, with the lawsuit filed by the Southern Poverty Law Center, on behalf of Jordan Gruver, against "Imperial Wizard" Ron Edwards, and Jarred Hensley Vice President of Supreme White Alliance. I was blogging on my old site at the time and have since moved to our new site, partnering with Richard Dillon. While covering the trial I managed to get a video interview of "Imperial Wizard" Ron Edwards, and Jarred Hensley Vice President of Supreme White Alliance. I also got video interviews with Jordan Gruver, after he was awarded 2.5 million dollars, Richard Cohen, President of the Southern Poverty Center, and a short response from Jarred Hensley Vice President of the Supreme White Alliance.
Shortly after the 2008 November elections I began to notice a huge Right Wing resentment towards Barack Obama, a resentment that I didn't understand. After all Barack Obama didn't create the mess we were in and was then that I decided to document the Right Wing anger with photos and video to the best of my ability and with what little strength I still had in my then 69 year old body and try find out why these folks were really so angry.
I realize that most of you won't have the time to watch all the videos or the hundreds of photos, but I suggest if you do you will find that racism in America is alive and well and it's found a home in Right wing America. Thanks for taking the time to read this post.
