To the Editor:

The hypocrisy of the Southern Poverty Law Center is only more obnoxious than the fact they only go after hate crimes that are profitable.

The SPLC cares nothing for minorities and victims of hate crimes, and they care only about profit.

I contacted the SPLC the first time to report that after I had posed for a photograph of me kissing my black lady-friend, I went outside the next morning where I discovered the phrase "Nigger Lover" spray-painted on my front door.

The SPLC did not respond to my e-mail.

I wrote them a letter the next day, and even now, I have received no response.

I called them after two weeks, and they refused to report what happened to me as a hate crime.

Could it possibly be because I am a Member of the Council of Conservative Citizens, the League of the South, and the Sons of Confederate Veterans?

Does that mean it is impossible to commit a hate crime against me and my lady-friend who is black?

Just because I am a huge Confederate means that I am a free target for racism, bigotry, prejudice, and hatred?

The SPLC is a fraud run by millionaire con men who only "fight" hate when they can make money off of it. They do not care about the minorities.

When it comes to color, green is every thing and the only thing to them.

For GOD and Alabama:
