Freemasonry doesn't attempt to educate the masses, it is a method of controlling them through their own beliefs.
If you have a lodge in racist area, then allowing blacks to join would lead to white people in the lodge getting upset and not wanting to do what you tell them.
Likewise with Christian only lodges for areas where there is religious intollerance.

what is the public explanation for the fact that a black man is not allowed to be admitted into the scottish or irish rites and instead has been given their own sect, Prince Hall rite, in which to be contented with?

Prince Hall masonry is open to non black males, in exactly the same way that all masonry is open to all men whatever their colour or creed.
The rest of your questions are immediately left redundant as the very premise of your post is factually incorrect.
This is my second post here at ATS, and I'm already thinking this may not be the place for me with the likes of MrNecros and his seemingly unending series of lies, deliberate misinterpretation or misrepresentation.
Christ on a bike this annoys me.
Oh, vaunted toupee of the nether region

Not a mason myself...have been going to a lodge for 6 months and have turned in my app...have heard from several brothers here in SF that some lodges in the South will still not sit with or recognize Prince Hall masons...It seems that Theron is from southern CA so does anyone here have direct experience of masonic relations in the Southern Jurisdiction? I went to school in North Carolina and was pleasantly surprised with Chapel Hill area, but out in rural areas many folks still cling to old ideas about race and religion.
