Here we go again......

The grand dragon (whatever that title means) lives outside of Harrison. Harrison is not the headquarters or anything like that. To the best of my knowledge, the kkk has no "headquarters" or "main office".

EDIT: Just to add, I lived near Harrison for the better part of my life and never, not once, saw anyone in a white sheet or burning crosses or anything like that. It isn't like Harrison is wildly diverse but there were enough families of color that if the kkk idiots thought they were big and bad enough to make a scene, they would have.

The head office for the KKK is in Harrison! They have a web site that shows the Harrison address have a look at the link What is White Christian Revival (http://www.kkk.bz/ - broken link) or search the KKK for all the information you need.

We are Jewish, and i worked in Harrison for a short time and had no issues. The City of Harrison amended their Charter to state they are against Racism , and are not associated with Hate Groups. I was impressed they came out on major TV stations reporting this . Fedex located a large Hub in Harrison and are big on Diversity.
I am not in denial there are a few outspoken antiquidated ,ignorant , unamerican , bumpkins, that wanna keep stoking those old fires ,but from what we have seen, people wanna leave it as a mistake of the past . I think the ones you find left are malcontents , that would rather waste time hating than building a stronger, friendly , Great America , that my Grandparents came here to help build 100 yrs ago . Best Wishes .

I want to get something straight here, I am not saying I support the KKK and I am not saying I don't. Kee Ra ask a question and wants to hear an honest answer. and a honest answer he now has For those that don't want to believe their head offices are in Harrison look at the Klan's web site

Default kkk

There is indeed a lot of kkk activity in harrison. If you go west of harrison appx 10 miles there is a large fenced in area with confederate battle flags posted every thrity feet. This is a large White sup. camp. the grand wizard lives in harriaon. There is still the unwriten rule of N!gger get out by sun down, in harrison. I am not taking a for or against side. but I have seen this in person.
I know some here try to play it down but it is real and there is a feeling of you do not belong here if you are not from here attitude in Harrison.
Just a bit north to branson and it is completey different feeling.
I did not see any baldknobers though.
