Print | Front Page | Email this story

NASHVILLE (AP) — A Nashville hotel has canceled reservations for a white supremacist organization this weekend.

Guesthouse Inn director of sales Michelle Jameson told The Tennessean (http://tnne.ws/1K9g2Qh) the hotel made the decision three days ago after learning about the Council of Conservative Citizens.

Council board member Brad Griffin said the organization told its members not to go to Nashville this weekend. He said about 100 people had been expected for the event.

A manifesto purportedly written by Charleston, South Carolina, church shooting suspect Dylann Roof said he learned about black-on-white crime from the Council on Conservative Citizens' website.

Griffin said no one he knows has heard of Roof, who Griffin said is responsible for his own actions.

Jameson said she made the decision with the hotel owner to cancel the reservations and had received many calls complaining about the event.
