I'm from South Louisiana and my dad was a member of the Clan for a while in the late sixties early 70's. He used to have the flags sitting on display
in our living room. My dad was/is a mean hateful human being but I can say that I was told by my sister a couple of years ago that he told her he left
the Clan because they told him that in order to advance in the 'cult' he had to kill a black person, so at least he wasn't a murderer.
Im not a racist at all. When you're told you can't like or hang out with people of color and then go to school and have black teachers and classmates
i realized from a young age that you can't judge people by the color of their skin. I had some great teachers and one of my best friends was black all
the way up to high school.( I know that sounds clich'e but it's true I swear.)
However one of my sisters is a bigot and lives in David Duke country. There is actually a sign on the highway saying 'you are now entering David Duke
There was a shooting at my high school. A white kid from my neighborhood who rode the bus with us that morning had a gun with him and a few minutes
after school started he shot and killed a black kid. It was awful. Rumors started that there would be black and white violence the next day at school.
When we returned to school most of us were wearing t shirts that had a black and white fist entwined and said Unity. Everyone came together and
mourned together and proceeds from the shirts were given to the students family.
The KKK are a dying breed I hope.
