Proud Member of the KKK




And I thought Dave Chapelle's sketch on the blind Klansman was funny because it was so far-fetched. Looks like I was wrong.

If you're in the KKK, this kind of story must be really embarrassing. I wonder how the Klan's publicist is going to try and spin this...

I forgot how the military frowns upon their own being in organizations like KKK i.e. you can't according to the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

When I was 10, a local farmer near where I lived rented his land to the Klan - it was the first time in 70 years since they'd organized publicly and it was a direct result of a black family moving into a house on his road. One night eating dinner at my friends house, a cross burst into flame in the field next door. It was the farmers property and we were blown away to see a circle of "people" in the white outfit surrounding it. It was visceral and friggen scary as hell and I was a little white kid. The farmer died a few years later, and never another word was spoken about it. At least nothing I would go on to hear. We used to pick raspberries in that farmers field but none of us dared set foot on his property ever again. Twenty five odd years later they have never publicly demonstrated in the state I live in nor have they made any kind of headlines that I can remember. PS I am in New England. This which I have written is neither insightfull nor funny. My appologies.

I'm only going to say this once and if anyone brings it up I will deny it.

White people are the ones whose behavior racist terrorists like the Klan are trying to change. That's always true. It was true from the time of the Slave Codes to Jim Crow.

So in a way I feel sorry for people like you Tim because you have to witness their hate-filled foolishness. I will probably never have to deal with those knuckleheads.
There is absolutely no way they will come around where I live. I won't go looking for them, so for me they are just clowns on TV making asses of themselves. So this ends up being a case where racism hurts whites more than non-whites.

My official position is that white people are never hurt more by racism. Again, any suggestion otherwise will be denied.

Those crazy white people... when will they learn.

Clinton,

You are absolutely right.

"Where da white women at?"

I don't feel embarrassed by the KKK any more than the Nazis or Scientologists. All a bunch of douche bags. I, however, am not a douche bag.

every now and then some hate group tries to march in a black neighborhood here. Most of the time it's Skinheads. But..hah they don't do that much anymore. Every now and then I bump into one, and they are oddly polite. Are they trying to clean up their image?
