    Aren't these people extinct yet?

    Focus. Control. Conviction. Resolve. A true ace lacks none of these attributes. Nothing can deter you from the task at hand except your own fears. This is your sky.

    They're around but they are more strategic when it comes to their attacking of people they don't like. There's too many guns out here for them to act a fool as they did back in the day.

    As the Black wolf stated, memphis are full of gangs. This could go down real ugly.

    All the $#@! is a shame if you ask me.

    ...not many people were strong enough to turn the other cheek ala MLK or straight up fight oppression like Malcolm. 2 transformative figures
    Just gonna add to an already good post, Malcolm X also repented in his later life and started embracing all people.

    Malcom may have done more good than the Klan but that doesn't disprove my point that he was initially a racist. Good that he changed from that.

    Right. Later in life he started embracing ALL people. So he was racist initially. And like I said before God bless him for changing from that.

    Again - lol wut?

    Everyone likes to conveniently confuse being proud of being ________ (white/black/brown,yellow/green etc) as racist. The difference is; ta lot of pro-white groups are racist.

    Most "pro-____" ethnic groups tends to be within a context of where they are a minority - which is totally different simply because they are not the 'voice' or the 'norm' of that certain society. Usually these are groups which act as a 'beacon' to signal community and closeness to those of the same culture etc.

    You could argue that the KKK is exactly that - but with a glaring hole that they are "hate-based".

    I would say 99% of these ethnic groups (who have 'pro groups') in countries like the USA, Uk, Aus, NZ, Canada etc) are not hate-based.

    I've never seen a group of Indian men/women celebrating Diwali (a festival of lights) and being PROUD of that heritage to be an issue. And I don't see a problem with that either,

    Conversely, if there was a group of pro-German or whatever in these nations (a country where Germans aren't the majority); there is no issue with that as generally these are just people that would like to get together and eat sausages, drink beer, and watch some soccer (nothing wrong with that! ).

    Plus, I would argue that there aren't any non-white ethnicities (apart from maybe African-Americans) that are "pro-[COLOUR]" unlike the KKK obviously is proclaiming specifically and not only "pro-white" but also their superiority).

    Again, I see the majority of these non-white groups to not be proclaiming they are superior to anyone.

    Bottom line, if people are butthurt over "pro-white groups being lambasted is simply this; historically speaking (and for the most part) that these are hate groups with a superiority complex and often act and commit terroristic act; rather than just being formal gathering, celebratory/heritage-type groups.

    Sorry, but if you can't delineate and differentiate between the two; it's either a) you're just racist and want to try and justify your own groups and/or limit other ethnic groups, b) cannot comprehend the differences between the two due to not wanting to/or cannot mentally do so; or c) simply just misinformed.


    I sincerely hope everyone is C (or at worst, B)....

    This is a harsh and unnoticed truth right now in western society, but this doesn't apply here at all. Blacks and gays have sought equal rights and freedoms, while the KKK is just a group of bigots who's only agenda is to hate.

    Yeah, guys, KKK is definitely still around. So is racism in its extreme forms.

    I think we should be careful to not be too naive about how far American history has come regarding race relations. It has gotten much better to be sure, but not to a comparable degree everywhere. Things are moving the right way, but the nation still has a long way to go.

    I don't understand the passion behind the reverse-discrimination thing. The article is about something going on in America, where white people have, by far, the worst reputation/history in race relations compared to their minority counterparts lol. It should be no surprise that a group defending the title of a park that is named after a guy who appears to have been made famous for helping lead a hate-based group (during a time when white oppression was still in full force) would put up red flags. Not only that, but the park is in a predominantly African-American area. I think the situation breaches deeper into questions of common sense rather than those confined to race.

    It's kind of like when Lance Armstrong was stripped of all his Tour de France wins because he was charged and found guilty for using drugs. He is still a prominent figure in cycling history, but does the chief organization really want to associate their legacy with that kind of person knowing his agenda has been directly against their own core values all this time? If we are to deem this decision as justified, then why shouldn't the KKK feel the same way about a guy who was, most likely, also undignified in his values (considering how KKK was back then)?

    In my opinion, the idea of the strong arm of KKK defending the park's name suggests they haven't changed enough ideologically.

    Anyway, I'm not sure what the call should be on this Confederate park. Politically, there may be an argument here, but the moralist (or common sense, perhaps?) in me would rather it be renamed.

    I love to see latge KKK rallies it gives us a chance to see if any of our white friends are actually rascist if they participate in the rally.

    But you don't see their faces due to the masks. Unless they're riding around.

    Though I hear KK mask outfits have come a long way since the wild west.

    I think there's a bigger issue here and it's the stripping away of the southern heritage one small piece at a time. People need to accept their heritage, no matter the skin tone, warts and all. I see this as nothing short of political correctness indoctrination. The KKK has a point here but they won't be able to get it across simply because they've announced their intentions as official Klan business.

    For any would-be assholes, I do not endorse the KKK, its affiliations or its activities so you may as well get that out of your heads now before you embarrass yourselves.

    Here in Texas the KKK is strong southeast part of the state near Houston. In small cities like Beaumont and Vidor Texas. Vidor is known as KKK city where majority of business folks in that region came from.

    Sounds like you hate racism...

    People need to accept their heritage, no matter the skin tone, warts and all. I see this as nothing short of political correctness indoctrination.
    Yep.

    It's like blacks with slavery and African heritage...
    "I hate that my ancestors were cotton picking slaves to some white people."
    "I'm proud of my African heritage."
    "What do you mean other African tribes enslaved my ancestors and sold them to white people?!"

    Just heard on the radio that the Washington Redskins might be changing their name because some Indians are butt hurt. Oh, PC people... I hate you.
