Title

Board Meeting, [31] July 5, 1977, Citizens' Comments: Ben Green

Abstract

Skokie resident Ben Green states that doesn't agree with the ACLU's position in defending the neo-Nazis and goes on to commend the Village for passing the ordinances preventing the neo-Nazis from coming to Skokie. He suggests that an exploratory committee is appointed to determine how to best combat Nazism, not just in Skokie, but regionally, as well. He concludes, "Our kids should understand that there is a great difference between the march of Martin Luther King who marched for democracy and against racism and in favor of our Constitution and the march of the Nazis who want to spread racism and hatred and against our Constitution."
