Protest against 'racist articles' in local Georgia newspaper

By  | 

COLQUITT, Ga. (WTVY) — A group gathered in downtown Colquitt, Georgia Friday for what they called and anti-hate rally.

Colquitt is in Miller County, about 45 miles east of Dothan and about 30-minutes southeast of Blakely.

The organizer posted to Facebook using the hashtag "miller county takes stand."
The posts reference articles from the Miller County Liberal, a local newspaper, saying "Let's end these racist posts."
The articles are written by the editor of the paper, Terry Toole.

In one article titled "Democracy Versus Racism", the paper printed a story that reads:
A black kid asks his mother, "Mama, what's a democracy?"
Well, son, that's when white folks work every day, so we can get all our benefits.
But mama, don't the white people get upset about that?
Sure they do, that's called racism.

WTVY called the Miller County Liberal for a response, and were told Toole is not giving any comment to any media.
