Chris Simpson, right, and his wife Misty pray with their children, who they wished to remain nameless, before putting them to bed Monday night, April 30, 2012, at their home in Jackson. The Simpson's were members of a White Pride group known as Battalion 14, before leaving the movement earlier this year. While the movement usually focused on nonviolent action, Battalion 14 leaders were pushing for more activism, and the group was placed on the Southern Poverty Law Center's Hate Map in 2010. The push for activism played a part in the Simpson's decision to leave, with the final push coming from Ronnie Noocha, an Arab-American clerk at a local liquor store. "That person that you may have offended of a different race, it may have bothered them at that point in time, but at the end of the day they've shrugged it off, but you're still carrying it. All this hatred is going to kill you faster than it is them," he said. Now, Chris and his wife have turned their lives around. "For 12 years we were helping people, we were just helping the white people. I'm hoping for the next 12 years we'll be able to help everybody" Chris said.
