Update: this is not a double post. I’m posting this because of the addendum at the bottom of this piece.
“Arlene Army” burned her NAACP membership card in protest over the organizations anti-confederate flag stance.
It’s being reported today that an Arlene Barnum was a passenger in a car being chased by anti-confederate flag activists when the driver lost control and rolled into a ditch. The driver died.
We believe Arlene Barnum to be “Arlene Army.”
Why I Wave the Confederate Flag, Written by a Black Man: The End of Niggerism and the Welfare State
I thought it might be possible that this author was simply saying things white people would like to hear, and making a quick buck by exploiting this vulnerability.
But this book was written 8 years ago, before the Obama era, and Hervey’s revelations were formed years prior to that.
I tried to contact Mr. Hervey on social media. I scrubbed the post because I only wanted to post it after getting to speak with him to find out where he was, ideologically, 8 years after writing his book.
Maybe he wasn’t so into flying the confederate flag any longer.
Apparently he was.
