No, I haven't heard anything about that, and hope I don't know anyone that knows anything about that.

give me a break. With all respect, are asking that for real or just trying to start controversy. I know it was active in the early to mid 70's, but haven't heard of anything more recent than that.

I didn't hear that, but I don't doubt it. But it could also be a rumor. Even if it is true, that is over 15 years ago. There is a fairly stable, but admittedly small, black population in Plainfield now. Certainly more than in the 90's. I'd think if the Klan was active, we'd be hearing a lot about it.

But I think, and certainly hope, those days are gone.

Klan. That line of thinking is insane. That's like apples destroying pears because they are different. It's as dumb as it sounds.
OMG is that big

Here's a scenario.........you wake up at say around 2:13am in the middle of the night. You're awakened by the sound of a raging fire outside your bedroom door. It's not important how it started it doesn't matter. Your kids are down the hall in two other bedrooms and the entire house will soon be ablaze. You grab the bedside phone...dial 911 and the Plainfield Fire Dept answers....."Plainfield Fire" you scream at the top of your lungs because now the fire is raging even more "hello fire dept? send help! my house is on fire". Ten bucks say's "you don't scream into the phone hello fire dept send me help but I only want white firemen to save me!" The point is when your really need help and are in a desprate situation whether it's a fire,a heart attack, you and your big suv just got creamed on 59 outside of Nabby's by some drunk, or your car is stuck in the Meijer parking lot with a dead battery. It really doesn't matter the color of the people that rescue you.

The black race......the white race....the yellow race....any race........here's a thought

We are all the same race the HUMAN race.

kkk is alive and well. Perhaps the #'s are down in Plfd, but I assure you that they still exist. For anyone to think otherwise is hiding their head in the sand. We've made progress, but we still have a long way to go.

There is no KKK meetings in Downtown Plainfield. There is however, a bakery, a "make your own pottery" studio, clothing stores, bars, antique stores, a Cajun & Caribbean restaurant, and a golf shop... sorry no Klan Headquarters.

But, the KKK IS part of our Historic community. It should be honored as such and includede in the Cemetery Walk.

If anything in Plainfield is more than 50 years old (new hpc rule), we can flag it historic.

I guess the fur coming out of Humper-dinker's nose is historic and we cannot allow him to cut it!

click on mike 13221's profile and check out his recent posts... is this guy serious? maybe some kid huddled in front of his pc with nothing better to do that peruse message boards and cause trouble? maybe a confused, lonely adult? please don't tell me there are still people out there that think this way. It's 2009, not 1909 for pete's sake! We are so much better than this!

Truly sad...

"with some ethnicitys being better then others"

I'd love to hear mike 13221 explain this while sounding intelligent..

I would also challenge ANYONE to specify when and where these so called meetings still take place. Anything more than a couple of sad excuses for human beings sitting around drinking Milwaukee's Best and I would be VERY surprised. What a waste of time...
