Baria condemns Klan for threatening video

(BAY ST. LOUIS, MS) - In response to a YouTube video released by members of the United Dixie White Knights, Rep. David Baria (D-Bay St. Louis), has released the following statement:

"The threatening video issued by the Ku Klux Klan earlier this week is a stark reminder that we still have a long way to go in the effort to create a united Mississippi. Hateful threats should have no place in our discourse and I think part of the responsibility is on us as public officials to call this behavior out when it happens.

This week demonstrates that we need all good Mississippians to keep doing good work and remain vocal."
