NAACP + KKK = Nothing Accomplished

I'm not even going to bother posting links here; just Google the two acronyms together and you'll get page after page of articles and blog posts talking about the meeting between the NAACP and the KKK in Somewhere, Wyoming (or was it Colorado?  Anyways....).

What drew me to the story was the leader of the KKK in that area, James Abarr.  When asked the recent attacks on black men in that area, coupled with KKK "literature" being circulated, Abarr started talking some mess about agreeing that it sounded like hate crimes, and how it was wrong, and how his group was nonviolent and just wanted more white babies, and sure...he'd join the NAACP.  He'd pay the $30 fee and even make a $20 donation.  And he made a point to mention he wasn't aware of the true extent of the KKK's history, and he didn't actually know what all went down back in the day.

*blink*  Negro, please.

I'm not going to bother delving into Klan history.  This post isn't about the past; it's about the present and the future.  "I don't know/I wasn't aware" is not a believable answer from white folks.  I'm not buying it.  It's a lie like any other, like countless others, and I'm not paying for this one today or any day from hereon out.

You mean to tell that me that when a white man's uncles and daddies and granddaddies are regaling him with great tales of the Good Ole Days, they're leaving out the parts about getting away with rape, murder, and terror?  Aren't those supposed to be the really, really cool parts?  Aren't they whole reason for telling the goddamn stories in the first place?

Y'all, James Abarr is sipping a Natty Light on a friend's porch right now, laughing his ass off about how he played the Clueless White Boy and the supposed-to-be Wizened Negro fell for it.  They know good and well who's attacking black men in that town and they've encouraged it.  They've made it clear they don't believe in races mixing and the one thing all the black men had in common - aside for the obvious - was that they'd been seen with white women.

Mm-hm.

  1. I just thought that this was a publicity stunt. If they were about progress, they would admit to the question.Please!

    1. Commenters pointed this out. The only these two could be relative in the media, is to appear together.

  2. Welp, this is one of those moments you shake your head and weep in the bushes. Nothing surprises me anymore and quiet frankly the KKK can all f-off they know whats up. We'll see what happens when their own turn up dead, maybe another conference can be held. (rolls eyes)

    That right there had me laughing inside. They know good and well that their group is a violent extremist gang, and I think I keeled over when I read the part about wanting more white babies. Yeah, sure.

    1. He also added how he thought it was cool to be an "outlaw", wear robes, burn crosses, and use a secret handshake.
