Black residents in an overwhelmingly white county in Virginia worry they’d be treated differently should they receive care from emergency medical technician Alex McNabb, a white supremacist whose neo-Nazi podcast recently got him suspended from his job.

Residents packed out a meeting of the Patrick County board of supervisors Monday, at which local officials, lawyers and McNabb himself squabbled over the EMT’s fate as a health worker. Last week, McNabb was placed on unpaid leave for comments he made on “The Daily Shoah,” a neo-Nazi podcast he frequents as a co-host. He was suspended without pay shortly after a HuffPost report revealed the comments, but he wasn’t fired.

Black residents of Patrick County ― which is 92 percent white ― said they were worried about being treated differently by a white supremacist EMT, according to CNN, which covered the meeting.
