What's Happening In Your World
Most politicians make it their business to kiss the @ss of whatever constituency requires an @a*s kissing at any given moment. That’s the norm. What we’re not accustomed to, however, is a politician telling a particular constituency to kiss his or her @a*s. But that’s exactly what former Alabama Attorney General did in a letter to the home grown terror group, the Ku Klux Klan,  back in the day. The 1976 letter, in which Baxley writes only, “My response to your letter dated February 19, 1976, is – kiss my *a*s” [asterisk added]  was recently unearthed by the website  Letters of Note,   and has quickly gone viral. Here’s a bit of context offered by  Letters of Note: In 1970, shortly after being elected Attorney General of Alabama, 29-year-old Bill Baxley reopened the  16th Street Church bombing case  -— a racially motivated act of terrorism that resulted in the deaths of four African-American girls in 1963 and a fruitless investigation, and which marked a turning point in the Civil Rights Movement. Baxley’s unwavering commitment to the case attracted much hostility, particularly from local Klansmen, and in 1976 he received a threatening letter of protest from white supremacist Edward R. Fields -— founder of the “National States’ Rights Party” and “Grand Dragon” of the New Order Knights of the Ku Klux Klan —- in which he was accused of reopening the case for tactical reasons. Well done Mr. Baxley. African Americans owe you a debt of gratitude.
