For the record, I do have an uncle named James Spears. He died a few years ago. So as far as I know I am of no relation to the James Spears, the Great Titan of the Loyal White Knights of the Klu Klux Klan, the group who is sponsoring an upcoming rally in support of the Confederate Flag flying over South Carolina.
Spears is all over the headlines for announcing the plans for the rally to be held next month at the South Carolina Statehouse. According to the Washington Post, the request for the rally was made one day after S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley announced that she would call on state lawmakers to remove the flag following the racists act that led to the slaying of nine people at a historic church in Charleston.
