Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.
The Southern Poverty Law Center is understandably outraged by the employment of a woman with ties to the KKK:
An executive with an organization that tracks hate groups calls the employment of the woman, Chloe Black, an "untenable position" and "unbelievable."
Black, the ex-wife of former KKK leader David Duke, is now married to Don Black, the creator of the white-power hate site Stormfront. Chloe Black is currently employed as an executive assistant at Florida Crystals, a sugar conglomerate whose owners, the Fanjul brothers, have donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to help build a new campus for Glades Academy.
Glades is a charter school for the children of African-American and migrant workers in Pahokee, a rural town in Palm Beach County. Billionaire Jose "Pepe" Fanjul's wife, Emilia, is chairman of the board of Glades Academy, and she hired Black to help promote the school.
Reports suggest that Black's salary from the school may be going to support her husband's activities on the hate site, as Don Black has had no clear source of income for some time.
But, just imagine for one second the woman in this story was a Muslim with ties to Jihadists, and she was employed at a non-Muslim, maybe even Hebrew, school. Exact same story, just a different background and different type of school.
Do you think this would be in the news?
Now, I'm not suggesting this isn't newsworthy. I am
suggesting there is a double standard when it comes to white-supremacist racial intolerance and religious intolerance. Some may argue that racial prejudice is more offensive since one cannot choose race. Religious intolerance, however, is aimed at embraced ideologies.
My question is, why do some who claim to oppose hate groups - especially on the left - conveniently omit hate groups that use religion as a bases for their hatred?
