Alberto, take whatever someone has told you with a grain of salt - unless this person is someone you can really trust and who knows this area very well. I think someone may have just been trying to scare you myself.

The Klu Klux Klan is not totally dead in this country (unfortunately), but they are a very tiny group these days. These are very uneducated, bigoted, racist people who think white folks are somehow better than everyone else on this earth. In particular they hate black people, Jewish people and Catholics - probably Mexicans now too. And strangely, they do all this while often proclaiming to be christians! Would love to see the looks on their faces in the afterlife when God sets them straight!!!

Listen, don't let this worry you - REALLY.

I have never heard this! I really don't think it is anything to worry about. I have never heard anyone of any race mention this to me so I really don't think it is true.

Default kkk

i would make a trip to the union county sheriffs office and speak to someone in authority there. the kkk have their reputation but so do the crips, bloods and ms13. dont know how many crimes are reported where the bad guy was id'd as a kkk member but the others mentioned above are ALWAYS making the news.

I honestly haven't heard of any KKK activity since maybe the 60's - during the period of racial integration. I tend to think of the KKK in the same light as gangs (or the dreaded "snakes" thread we've got going...LOL!) I avoid their habitats, so I rarely run into any of them (snakes, gangs or KKK). That's not to say that you wouldn't run up on something somewhere, but I'd think the chances are very slim.

The FBI has recorded only 2 race-related hate crimes for Charlotte-Mecklenburg for the entire year of 2005. Considering the area's population size, it sounds like pretty much of a non-issue to me.

I think the person who told you this may have read a story on wsoctv a while back. There was something, I don't remember the details, talking about it but that was the only time I have heard anything about the kkk in this area... and if I remember right it was outside of charlotte. I would imagine if there was more to it we would all have heard about it.

But as mentioned above, there definitely is gang activity. There has been a number of "tagging" incidents on buildings and some neighborhoods in sw charlotte. That said, gangs are a growing problem nationwide so take it for what its worth.

In traveling in the southern states to Charlotte,I have seen what appears to be large crosses in the ground.Is that KKK related? Also ,I have seen confederate flags in north and south carolina.There are still small minded and uneducated people in these areas. I don't understand this because there are many black people in the area.
