Tony Stewart: Aryans Cause Failed Here

For white supremacists who have made North Idaho home over the years hoping the region would one day become a white homeland, Tony Stewart (pictured) has this message: Sorry, but just the opposite is happening. When Idaho’s most recent U.S. Census numbers came out, Stewart, a retired North Idaho College political science instructor, crunched the numbers dating back to 1990. He came up with results that bolster his greatest passion – human rights. The co-founder of the 30-year-old Kootenai County Task Force on Human Relations says his results show the increasing diversification of one of the country’s whitest regions. … (Stewart told the Kootenai County Democratic Club Friday): “I stand here 38 years after Richard Butler and the Aryan Nations arrived in northern Idaho to present to you the overwhelming evidence that diversity and a multiculture society is prevailing over the advocates of a whites-only land”/Alison Boggs, SR.

Question: Are you glad to see the growing diversity in Kootenai County and North Idaho?
