Here's something you don't see everyday:

A black pro-Confederate demonstrator was met by angry Ku Klux Klan members at a Florida park in a Dave Chappelle sketch come to life.

H.K. Edgerton, the former president of the NAACP chapter in Asheville, North Carolina, travels the South wearing a Confederate army uniform to promote his belief that the seditious government was not racist.

The 68-year-old Edgerton baffled his former colleagues by campaigning in favor of pro-Confederate groups and promoting their symbols — which many Americans perceive as antagonistic emblems of the slavery and racism.

Edgerton, wearing a gray historical uniform, was paying his respects Monday morning at the Hemming Park Confederate Monument in Jacksonville when several members of an area KKK chapter confronted him, reported WTLV-TV.

The racist group argued with Edgerton until witnesses came to his defense and defused the situation.

The Southern Legal Resource Center, where Edgerton is a board member, said they weren’t sure why KKK members protested the black pro-Confederate activist’s demonstration.

My brain hurts and I have a really weird look on my face right now.

I can only assume that the Klowns got Konfused when they saw him. Frustrated with their confusion, they got angry and lashed out at him?

Never go full retard. But they aren't on the same side, and that's evident by their reaction.

rare instances where we see the Stockholm syndrome backfires.

a chicken and a fox become trapped from flooding, theres a boat near by, but the chicken cannot row alone and make it to safety, the chicken tells the fox if they row together theyll make it to safety. the fox agrees. but half way to safety, the fox begins to devour the chicken. before the chicken dies, it tells the fox, you cant make it across alone, now were both going to die. and the fox said, youre a chicken and im a fox, what did you expect.

whos the idiot here?
i wished hed gotten what he truly deserved.

oh what a black man has an honest assessment on a symbol that the progressive left is trying to erase from history, and so he just needs to be beat down?? The only idiots here are the KKK, but they always have been.

He was better dressed, much like Imperial officers compared to raggedy Sith

I have heard of this guy before, and while it's a free country and can express himself in any fashion, I feel free to criticize him on being on the wrong side of history, yes he had an ancestor that fought to keep others in bondage, but so did some Africans and Arabs fought in Nazi units, they probably have descendants, if those descendants showed up waving a Nazi flag and dressed in their fathers or grand father's WWII German uniforms talking about honoring their memories, they deserve a vocal beat down, we cannot chose the family we were born into or the action an ancestor took , but at least we can learn what not to celebrate about them when they chose to be on the side of the bad and the ugly.


It would be enough to say I had an ancestor that was an oppressor and move on from there, but in the case of Mr Edgerton he have to had realize what that symbolizes for most of his Black neighbors , that members of the Klan wanted to whoop his azz over their symbols should finally Klue him in that the people who uses those symbols ain't his friends.

I was not aware he was soliciting for a live action movie. What a shame it hasn't been funded yet.
