Races must unite for success of Delta
Butch Scipper says racial reconciliation is one of his top priorities.
As chancery clerk for almost 20 years, Scipper has worked to mend the damage from segregation by helping blacks and whites reach a common goal of improving the Delta. But for it to be successful, he says, they have to continue to do it together.
“We have great race relations here in Quitman County and have for years,” Scipper said. “I think it’s because people as a whole here have always, to some degree, accepted that everybody lives here together.”
