“Leonard Zeskind here. The question was asked about why I used the name Citizens Councils, instead of White Citizens Councils. The formal organization in Yazoo City and Greenwood and most of Mississippi at that time was "Citizens' Councils of America." There was also other groups at that time that explicitly used the name White Citizens Councils. In the anti-racist vernacular, they became the white citizens councils, the uptown Klan, etc. Because I was writing a fact-based refutation of Barbour, as one comment noted, I stayed on the straight and narrow fact-wise. For more on the contemporary version of the councils, please take a look at my book, "Blood and Politics: The History of the White Nationalist Movement from the Margins to the Mainstream."”

“Friend, you have many here that wouldn't accept your info even were it carved into stone tablets. And that is why this country is in such sad shape.”
“Leonard Zeskind here. Thank you for the spelling correction. This is my first comment or reply to my original post, and I always post under my real name -- if that is an issue. Thank you for the spelling correction. I will address this question of a conspiracy in another post in the next day or so. If you have a question about the militia, I did not see it. And just a note, here, I respond first to queries in which the person asking me a direct question uses their actual name.”

“Leonard, the email I sent to you was sent from the IREHR website on "contact us." On that website, I comment using my real name.
I only used an alias here because I was shy at the start. But, my real name is James Scaminaci III.”
