I take issue with The Commercial Dispatch’s Wednesday editorial castigating Leroy Brooks for not getting along with Harry Sanders during County Supervisors meetings. This is not a “good people on both sides” issue. As you noted, Sanders in July 2020 proudly and defiantly announced his beliefs. They are racist. Am I wrong in remembering that Sanders proudly owned the term at the time? Perhaps though, with more thought, he now prefers to call himself a white nationalist, or a white supremacist, or a white warrior — it is hard to keep up with how his type self-identifies. Whatever banner he chooses to march under these days, the response to racist beliefs is not convivial acquiescence. If Mr. Brooks is fed up and gets angry sometimes, isn’t that the sane response to intransigent racism? Sanders refuses to step down. Censure need not be directed at Mr. Brooks for getting frustrated at Sanders, but should be targeted at Sanders and his enablers. Racists should have no role in our local government.
