KKK Public March 2011

That is a shame that in the year 2011, the Klu Klux Klan can hold a public demonstration. It's a scary, but very true possibility the KKK can gain momentum and power in a community. Then before you know it, there will be an attempted bombing, like the one that was found in Spokane, WA during the Martin Luther King Parade this year. It is an act of terrorism, no matter how you look at it. The cities are partially responsible for the KKK becoming more active in communities. If they allow them to hold public demonstrations in the middle of town, they are supporting the activities of the KKK. Yes, there is such a thing as Freedom Of Speech, but the KKK crosses the line. They are preaching white power and hate. What makes them any different from any other terrorist group?

You don't have to be Middle Eastern, Jewish, African American, Hispanic or any other nationality to be a victim of the KKK. All you have to do is to not look European or for your skin to be too tan. You think your and your family are safe from the KKK and hate crimes, because you and your family is white. But, are you white enough according to their standards? Most people aren't white enough according to their standards.

A lot of people would prefer to just sweep the KKK under the rug and pretend they don't exist in their community. But, they are there and they are not going away anytime soon, because people just turn the other cheek when it comes to the KKK. That is pretty scary to me, my children are half Middle Eastern. There is always the possibility they call fall victims to hate or experience prejudice. I remember during 9/11, right around the corner in Dearborn, MI or other communities around the U.S., people from Middle Eastern descent couldn't walk into a grocery store or anywhere else without the fear of attack. I remember the stories of a woman who was attacked in Kroger, a woman who was attacked in a movie store, the family who had rocks thrown at their van while driving down the street. During the time of 9/11, I was married to my ex-husband, who was Middle Eastern, someone called our home and threatened to bomb our home and were doing the same to other Middle Eastern families in the area. Middle Eastern women were afraid to leave their homes for a while. Incidents like these ones happened all around the United States. That is a terrible thought that things can escalate to the point of people being afraid to leave their homes in the United States. The funny thing is, you don't hear about too many of these incidents in the world news. It's like hate crimes are a dirty little secret in the United States, they are trying to hide.


  1. wow, that is crazy. You would think they would all be gone and not around anymore. I have some racists friends and I just don't see how people can still be in that mind set. I feel really sad for people who have to waste that much engery on hating. Seriously, I have enough stress in my life then to worry about running into someone of a different color I don't like. Its stupid and can't wait to see the day that all this hatred is gone form the world

  2. Yeah, I know. It's the year 2011 & we are long removed from the 50's, but they are still around. More than people think.

  3. This makes me so sad that the segregation mind set is still amidst us here in 2011. :(


  4. It makes me sick when there are groups like that this that teach hate are allowed to continue! That is NOT what the constitution was made for! We are supposed to be one nation under GOD! SInce when did God say I only like white people and all else are just discards! Got news for these people God made ALL people and since he is perfect he had not made a mistake ONCE!!!. Just and FYI KKK there was NO WAY Jesus was "white" he lived in the middle east!!
    By the way I added your button to my blog! :)

  5. yes i agree that jesus was not white,but middle eastern and the savior of the world and not the picture of a white face,blond hair,and blue eyes as whosoever painted him to be that way for their satisfaction.but realize this to whosoever read this GOD is a spirit being and created every human on the earth.Because man is a spirit with a soul and lives in a body.And a soul of human beings has no color.Thank you.
