I'm white, and I'm proud of it. However, I don't need a hood or a group to hide behind. I also only base my associations on how I'm treated and mutual respect ....regardless of ethnicity or gender. This crap is no better than the black panthers or al-qieda.

You have no idea what the Klan is about. The only thing you know is what you have seen on tv and what the media wants you to see. The Klan is trying to help the community regardless of race, but the media doesn't want to show the positive images of the Klan they only want to show the negative. I would just about guarantee that everybody know at least one Klansman, and don't even realize it because the Klan is everywhere.

Why should you be proud of something you had no control over?

Take pride in your achievements. Take pride in your work. Take pride in raising your children properly. Take pride in being a good person. Take pride in something that you actually DID.

Taking pride in what color you just happened to be born is rubbish.

That's not pride. That's misguided arrogance and racism.

If you have to specify what people can have pride in then you must not have much of it yourself.I more whites were as proud of their color as blacks and hipanics we would have fewer problems.

I have no interest in the KKK or the Black Panther Party but, I support the right of both to state their position. Having said that, I can't support any act either group may commit that tramples on the Constitution. That includes infringing on another citizens rights as laid out in that document.

The Klan is trying to preserve the Constitution regardless of what the media says.

No.

That's what they want you to think, but it is far from the truth. Every Klan "rally" has a handful of obese rednecks showing up in hoods and spouting the same crap.

Most hide their faces, some "pride" huh?

Maybe not, but I have a damn good idea about what Nathan Bedford Forrest had in mind in Pulaski Tennessee over 200 years ago....

That shows how much you know since NBF wasn't even born yet 200 years ago. The Klan has only been around for 148 years

Exactly. No one would even know who he was if not for "Forrest Gump".

Another forgotten name in history. Yet some fat rednecks revere the man? Ha!

I have a question for those who are involved in such organization, be it any organization that promotes Unity be in religious, demographics. heritage or race.
It seems that a group would stand for the ideas and promotion of Men being all they can be, not just by their daily activity but by their actions. Why doesn't these groups enforce the FAMILY VALUE and STABILITY of being the Head of Household.
Do you understand what I am referencing? Look at this county and the children without FATHERHOOD. It seems that this should be the PRIORITY in these Groups. It is okay to organize and stand up for what you believe, but when does those beliefs surround being A FAMILY MAN?

I look at the present generation and the young men that are so wrapped up in drugs and living daily at low income housing, on the streets or hanging out day and night or prison cells, living with an addiction. When is the men organizations no matter what they are, going to start going door to door, street by street and truely put MEN in the role of Responsibility to the MALE ROLE as MAN and FATHER?
Sometimes I think if all these groups just took time to enforce FATHERHOOD, as much as Brotherhood, there would be a leadership in this country as the founding fathers before us. This country is failing the children. It isn't about race, demographics, rich or poor....it is about CHILDREN's Role Models in the future.
I just wish MEN would stand up to the Males that don't represent THE RESPECTABLE MAN.

I took liberty in my math....sue me. I did a 50 page research paper on the Klan in college. I know more than you think. Kuklos for example, what does it mean, and what language does it come from?

History buffs like me know him well. His raids were legendary. He was a VERY fierce guerrilla style general in the Confederate Army. It was his night raids as a soldier that inspired his early Klan tactics. Actually, the group took on its sinister side after Forrest. His midnight runs were more about intimidation than murder.
