Activists condemn day care in Sarasota home of supremacist

Florida Times-Union (Jacksonville)/March 11, 2005

Sarasota, Fla. -- Activists on Friday condemned a home day care center operated by the wife of white supremacist. A week ago Michael Herbert Blevins was listed in county inspection records as the substitute caregiver for the day care in his home, run by his wife of nine months, Bernadette.

Blevins is a leader in the white supremacist movement and host of a nationally known Web site and Internet radio show.

He has since been removed from the list and replaced with another substitute, county regulators said.

Sarasota County officials, who regulate child-care homes, said they have no reason to close the day care, not having found any violations of health and safety regulations.

But two of four children attending the day care were removed by their parents.

On Monday, several Sarasota area minority groups, including African-Americans, Hispanics and Jews, will to meet to agree on a statement condemning Blevins' white supremacist stands.
