The display, which featured a Ku Klux Klan figure alongside an effigy of a black man hanging from a noose, could be seen by drivers on Interstate 55.
Walter said his office had received several complaints about the display, so he contacted the office of prosecuting attorney Paul Boyd to see if it was within the sheriff's department's rights to remove it due to the problems it could cause.
Boyd encouraged Walter to discuss the matter with Hoskins and to ask Hoskins to take it down. Hoskins complied, but indicated he would contact his attorney with the intent of putting the decorations back up.
"There's been a bunch of people that's stopped by since I put them up," said Hoskins. "Said they want to shake my hand. They said they're glad to see a little white pride is still left in this country."

Good try at what? Those are HIS words. not mine
You are being deliberately obtuse. YOU are the one trying to compare those in previous Q's to this racist. Your ORIGINAL question is about people wanting to have white pride and being called racist. JUST like you are doing . Way to prove their point. So I guess what YOU are saying is that ALL people who claim to have black pride and things like BET and Ebony magazine should be compared to The idiots in the black panthers.....
