Do they user "Ultra White" washing powder on those suits they wear, why don't my shirts look that good :-)

Second of all, you don't know a crap about what it's like to be black in America.

My foster mom did something to her dad's KKK uniform- she HATED the man- She tie dyed it. And he had a meeting that night, full dress.
Imagine how he felt, in fruity groovy colors.....

Equal and fair is fine. Developing a race issue out of thin air makes it millitant.
The KKK threatened physical harm to this black family via a card that said " This was a social visit... The next one will not be social"
If this is not a race issue than My name is not Scott... and my name IS Scott....
If a black person standing up against injustices that were trespassed upon this is "Militant" then you must really hate people such as Martin Luther King JR. You know how militant those peaceful protests were....
They were about as militant as a black woman fighting for her rights as an American citizen..... In other words... Militant is not a word that should be used to describe this woman or the people defending her... Do you know why? Because this is reality... That's why....

Still. I wouldn't expect to see an armed guard in a Walmart.
And I would hope so. Almost all the security guards I see (not armed) are pretty incompetent.
I'm still trying to picture going to OfficeMax and ordering a batch.
I couldn't help but notice that the CNN video said nothing about the KKK card. It seems to me that if that card actually exists they would not only have talked about it, they would have shown it. The whole card thing seems to be in there just to make a race issue out of it. So let's see the video and let's see the card.
I'm still trying to picture going to OfficeMax and ordering a batch. "Let's see, I want an intimidating font. Should I use a logo or a picture of me in my hood? Which card stock should I select? Something waterproof and tear resistant, maybe? Getting 1000 is more cost efficient than 500, but I don't know if I'll be trying to intimidate that many people. Excuse me, ma'am, but you're black; does this card say 'I would burn a cross in your yard but I'm just too busy right now' to you?"

You’re making light of the situation or simply lack the ability to use critical reading and thinking skills. I don’t know which it is, but for now I’m going to give you the benefit of the doubt. However, I have two questions for you. Which is easier to print cards or books? The KKK has a history of creating hate literature and propaganda (books, phamplets, leaflets, flyers, compact discs, etc) where did they make all of these things?
