As long as there are groups like this, the KKK has nothing to worry about. They often preach it from the pulpit of the black congregations. You know, like the church B. Hussein went to with Jeremiah Wright. The one that the media did everything to squelch. You know, the one where B. Hussein donated $50K dollars to?

What bad memories did this invoke? This was a good thing. They did not kill somebody because of their race. How is that not good? Shows they are disorganized and do not attract intelligent people like they did for decades. Only the die hard ignorant fools still subscribe to their hatred.

Black gang member kill more blacks per year than the KKK has killed in its history more than likely.

The right-wing racists are coming out in droves, projecting their own vile hate they find shameful onto "black congregations" (as if all "black congregations" monolithicially expouse the same ideology -- this ain't talk radio; Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Bill Cunningham, and Michael Savage need not apply), Jeremiah Wright, and "B. Hussein" (it's Barack Hussein Obama, Jr., btw, if you going to say his whole name for effect, do it right. Also, it's Swahili, not Arabic in case you didn't know).


Ravaging beyond all of your right-wing rhetoric, riddle me this Robin and see if your brain is capable of though beyond regurgitating talking points from Ann Coulter and company:

Proudce, scour, google any concrete evidence in which Barack Hussein Obama, Junior; Jeremiah Wright; and the "black congregations" you find so worthy of your disdain and spite spoked, acted, advocated -- implicitly or explicitly -- anything equivalent* (this is important) to the horrors and evils acted upon by 150-plus-year existance of the Klan and I'll ban myself from this message board, meet you personally and shake your hand. Real talk.






*And by equivalent, I don't mean lofty evocations of America to the KKK, nor the damming of our Nation by God. That won't fly with me. I know the difference.

The invocation of the memories are bad because they reinforce stigmas of Louisiana and the "Deep South" back to the post-Reconstruction/Civil Rights eras. The nooses, the burning crosses, the police brutality (the hosing, the gassing, nightstick beatings) are conjured up in the consciousness of Americans all over with every report and follow-up by CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, PBS -- you know, the "liberal" media (whatever that means ). This, in effect, portrays Louisiana in state of transgression, intolerance, disunity -- characteristics that shaped the stigmas of days past.

Already struggling with recovery from Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, Gustav, and Ike, such invocation is counterinituitive in eyes of the good people of Louisiana who desire change and progress, real or precieved -- it doesn't matter. Any effort, intentional or not, that comprises said desire is met with hostility, denial, projection, disdain, diversion, etc. -- like the posts of some of the members here.

Instead of acknowledging the reality that such groups still exist (no matter how small of a number) and using this opportunity to engage in a healthy discourse of our problems, differences, disagreements, values, ideas, etc. in an effort to come together, some (emphasis on some) would rather finger-point, removing any culpability of the undenialble evil of the act and its perpetautors. What they fail to understand is that, in itself, is counterinituitive.

Only because they got caught, not because of the idoicy in their approach. I hope you understand the difference.
