The Context of White Supremacy welcomes Alabama State Representative Alvin A. Holmes. Rep. Holmes was elected in 1974 in the 78th District of Alabama. He’s a member of the NAACP, the Montgomery Improvement Association and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. Rep. Holmes has been at the center of a recent controversy concerning abortion. White Alabama State Representatives were considering measures to restrict abortions in the state. Rep. Holmes asserted that 99% of the Whites present were being hypocritical because many of these same White abortion opponents would hastily terminate their White daughter’s pregnancy if the father was a black male. Rep. Holmes has been excoriated as a Racist and an out of touch old fogy. Approximately 100 Whites rallied in Alabama to oppose his remarks and for a small number of them to showcase the non-white children in their family. Rep. Holmes has consistently asserted that he supports “interracial” relationships, but feels many of the Whites advocating for abortion restrictions are perpetrating a “con game.”
