CHARACTER COUNTS! National Leadership Council
Character Education Teacher, Yavapai County High School
Dear Mrs. Linn,
You vouched for Steve Blair's character when you endorsed his candidacy for Prescott City Council. Such an endorsement coming from you carries a great deal of weight because you're perceived to be an expert on character. Indeed, you've made character your profession. You're a character pro who forges character curricula at both the national and state level.
Now, Steve Blair is in trouble. Tolerance-worshipping egalitarianistas are after his head simply because he demanded that a black kid be removed from an elementary school mural.
They've been somewhat successful so far. The principal of the school publicly humiliated Blair by stopping the work begun to lighten the black kid's skin. And Blair was fired from his radio show for using it as a platform for his whites-only mural campaign.
Thankfully, he still holds that seat on the Prescott City Council he won after you endorsed his character. He says he's not going anywhere and that it's up to the people of Prescott to tell him when to go.
You've been silent on this issue, and that concerns me. As a character professional, I'd think you'd be standing up for Mr. Blair's right to segregate the city's murals. Lord knows, Sarah Palin, who we both fervently support, wouldn't sit idly by while the forces of equality besieged an ally. She'd be all over the media blaming the media for it.
It's time for you to demonstrate your own character by stepping up and voicing your support for Mr. Blair, his mural bleaching campaign, and the rights of proudly white portion of Prescott's citizenry.
Heterosexually yours in a chaste, biblically appropriate, and a characteristically proudly white kind of way,
Gen. JC Christian, patriot
