Richard Preston, the imperial wizard of Rosedale’s chapter of the Ku Klu Klan, will remain jailed without bond in Albemarle County, Va.
A Baltimore resident who leads Rosedale’s Ku Klux Klan chapter was arrested Saturday after the release of a video that appears to show him shooting at a black counter-protester at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va.
Ever wanted to own a craft brewery with some brand name appeal and a relatively broad distribution reach? You’re in luck.
Now, it’s probably not fair to expect a Ku Klux Klan group to present a coherent message, but color me confused by the Confederate White Knights’ whole angle here. The Md. KKK group held a public meeting in Cecil County on Friday in which members of the group — all done up in robes and hoods — claimed that they are not a hate group, and in fact have no problem with people of color.
So why did the two-year-old group decide to adopt all the trappings — including cross burning — of the Klan? To make their message of “saving America” by impeaching Pres. Barack Obama — for totally non-racist reasons — and toughening our immigration laws that much less appealing?
Just a month after plans for a low-income housing project in White Marsh were scrapped in the face of local opposition, a similar project slated for Rosedale is about to get blocked by Baltimore County Council today, which is likely to pass an unprecedented resolution to refuse state funding.
The proposed development would include 50 homes, and residents would have the opportunity to eventually own through lease-to-purchase agreements. At least five of the homes would be earmarked for Section 8 renters.
Councilwoman Cathy Bevins introduced the resolution, saying that while she is “not anti-poor people,” she disagrees with the location, which she says is “already a very poor community,” one without a grocery store or public transportation.
