This just shows that humanity in general has a long way to go. And sadly, I honestly believe we'll never get there. There are racist groups all over the country, the KKK isn't the only one. They just seem to be the biggest hicks of them all.

Stories like this make me hope 2012 really does bring about a change in the world as we know it, either a reawakening of mankind, or the extinction of mankind altogether by celestial means.

S**t!
I hope this is just a few "crazies". Hate to think our country still has more than a few of these.
People are people, I don't care if they're green, blue, purple or orange but these people need to be locked up and the key melted down.

I look at this as actually being kinda good in a way. Have ya'll seen the pictures of these chuckle heads? Not one of them looks to be a credible member of society. I understand that back in the day there were actually credible members of society in the KKK; it looks like there has been a change for the better.

Have you noticed that they are not killing blacks, Catholics, jews, etc., instead they are killing off each other. What a bunch of morons, they are idiots who can't even hold a meeting without a fight amongst themselves. There will always be morons who hate someone or some group, but to my way of thinking this incident is proof that the Klan has gone to the dogs and as far as I'm concerned the dogs don't even want them.

Just shows that we have way too many morons in our society. And it helps to remind everyone on the outside how backwards we can really be.
I like the thought SBC. I kinda wish something big would happen just to change people's perception of life as a whole. But I doubt that ever happens. Humans are flawed by design and we all have faults, me included.

According to statistics and the history channel on KKKs, there are 5,000-6,000 members still in the US. That number is small compare to over 40 years ago. The good news is they're getting smaller.

how come nobody ever mentions black racist groups? is it politically incorrect? As a white should i feel personally guilty because others are racist? What about race baiters, like jesse and big al, who turned our state into a laughingstock, and subverted our whole judicial system? Where were all the militant whites during the Jena six? Media hype!

There are black "racist" groups that are equivalent to the KKK? How?

Did they tie whites' necks to nooses to trees, killing them?
Did they burn crosses on the front lawns of the homes of white people?
Did they believe that all whites are inferior?
Did they advocate to businesses to deny employment to whites simply because they were white and other forms institutionalized discrimination?
Did they form an organization that terrorize and oppress a group of people based soley on a physical human trait out of fear of an precieved uprising as a result of the emancipation of said group of people from forced, free labor??

If there are black racist groups equivalent to this in America, past or present, please point them out to me because I don't see them.

What jesse and big al and those other "race baiters" did to subvert "our whole judicial system"? I don't know, but I'm really curious.

But it's all just media hype, right? Right?


Yeah, I thought so.
