‘Racist’ church’s meeting adds foes

Richmond Times-Dispatch, Sep. 18, 2002

The Rev. Harold Braxton isn’t surprised that a national white supremacist group picked Chesterfield County as a place to meet.

What troubles him is why.

“Racists think ours is an ideal county,” he said. “That saddens me. It bothers me that they think our residents would welcome this kind of thing.”

Braxton is the president of a Matoaca-based civic organization that grants scholarships to Virginia State University students.

He is also one of many people who oppose Chesterfield’s decision to allow the jQuery(document).ready(function( $) { $.post( 'https://www.religionnewsblog.com/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php', {action: 'mts_view_count', id: '886'}); });
