US hotel cancels racist booking

Issue No. 2188

The BNP leader Nick Griffin is planning to appear at a conference organised by “American Renaissance”, a US white supremacist group.

Trade unionists and anti-fascists from across the world were outraged by the plans. They have convinced the hotel where the event was to be held to cancel the booking.

American Renaissance promotes pseudo-scientific “research” arguing that non-whites are genetically and morally inferior to whites.

Dan Roodt, a South African apartheid supporter who says black people are genetically programmed to commit violent crime, is also set to come to the conference.

Other attendees include Jared Taylor, who argued after Hurricane Katrina that “when blacks are left entirely to their own devices, Western civilisation… disappears”.
