JASPER, IN (WFIE) -
A candidate for president of Jasper Indiana's School Board is getting a lot of attention for a video explaining his social and political beliefs.
The video has many in Jasper discussing King's words and beliefs.
John King's video is a production of SaveWhitePeople.com. In the video, King discusses the possible extinction of the white race over the next century.
In an interview on Wednesday, King says part of his campaign platform is to reduce lesson plans influenced by groups like the NAACP. King's words have got the Jasper community talking and some say they're troubled by his remarks.
"The white race, as a whole is dying," the video says.
The Youtube video named 'White Genocide: Fact or Fiction?' has received just under 300 views so far. The man featured throughout the 13 minute clip is Jasper resident John King, who's running for president of the town's school board.
"I'm a big fan of the schools, and I want to do what I can to make sure they continue in that mission and to excel," King said in an interview.
King's campaign platform includes striving to save taxpayer money and limiting book rental fees. It also includes the exclusion of lesson plans influenced by the ADL and the NAACP. Groups that King calls 'extremist.'
"I mean, the NAACP has been called an extremist group by many people. This is a group that favors preferences in jobs, training, and education based on somebody's race. That's wrong," King said.
King also said, if elected, he would bill the federal government for repayment of costs incurred by the school district for educating illegal immigrants. This mirrors state senate Bill 590 signed by Governor Daniels last year.
"In our schools, obviously, the illegal aliens are taking up resources. They have special programs for them, like English as a second language. We're having, we the taxpayers are having to foot the bill for this broken border of 1,500 miles away. I figure, well if they can do this in Indianapolis, why can't we do it here?" King said.
"I've been troubled by what I've read and I was troubled by what I saw," said current school board president Nancy Habig.
Habig is the incumbent in the race against King. She says after seeing King's video online, and hearing about his platform, the people of Jasper feel embarrassed.
"I really, really like this town. I'm very proud of our schools. I'm very proud of our community and I really don't think this is what the people of Jasper want for an elected official," Habig said.
King also says if elected, he would not seek compensation for his services, saying he simply feels compelled to serve his community.
