That's the thing about Garvey. He was unapologetically willing to meet anyone, anywhere to further the Pan-Africanist cause. A lot of people didn't like him (and vice-versa), but no one can deny the influence of the UNIA on 20th century African-American nationalism and religion.

Bonkthat_Again: Philip Seymour Hoffman is in the KKK?


And apparently, now also in the NAACP.

He sounds like he just wanted to be in the Klan so he would have somewhere to belong to and meet people. Next thing you know he will be joining PETA, Greenpeace, and FARC.

/probably already in FARK.

Indeed: "I regard the Klan, the Anglo-Saxon clubs and White American societies, as far as the Negro is concerned, as better friends of the race than all other groups of hypocritical whites put together." -Marcus Garvey

"Throughout its varied history, the Klan has coined many words[168] beginning with "Kl" including:
Klabee - treasurers
Klavern - local organization
Imperial Kleagle - recruiter
Klecktoken - initiation fee
Kligrapp - secretary
Klonvocation - gathering
Kloran - ritual book
Kloreroe - delegate
Imperial Kludd - chaplain "

"Hey Kludd!  How about we grab the Klabee and the Kligrap and spend some of the Klavern's Klecktokens on a new Kloran?"

It's Klucking silly.

FTFA: Local leaders of the Ku Klux Klan and the NAACP had a face-to-face meeting in Casper, Wyo. on Saturday, which is believed to be the first time the two groups have ever met peacefully.

Looks like the KKK got home field advantage

Ah, the KKK and the NAACP... One is an antiquated, racist organization run by imbeciles, whose soul purpose is the suppression of African Americans, the other, of course, likes to dress up in white robes...
 
2013-09-04 10:47:07 AM
Its funny how the upstream Klan groups are ok with this, but the state and national NAACP groups are all butthurt. Probably because this local guy didnt give them enough notice to gather up all their talking heads for some sweet sweet camera time to spout more of their own rhetoric and make a big circus out of it.
 
2013-09-04 10:47:44 AM
This is a strange thing, this meeting.  I don't know if I should support it or not, considering that it lends credence and respectability to the KKK.

Nah, I won't support.  This was a stupid idea.

"There is an internal structure for dealing with those who do not adhere to directives and clearly articulated guidelines," Lytle said. "I cannot think of a time when it might be appropriate for an NAACP local unit to meet with leaders of a national hate group. Having been identified by the NAACP, by the FBI and by our partners SPLC (Southern Poverty Law Center) as a hate group."
Simmons said he was within his rights to conduct the meeting.
"I'm a branch president, and, as long as I have forums like that within the boundaries of my city, I don't have to ask for her (Lytle) or the national offices permission," he said.
The two men also discussed segregation and the KKK's desire to secede from the U.S. Abarr told Simmons that he saw an increase in new members in his Klan group when President Barack Obama was elected, and told Simmons why he likes being a member of the Klan.



What the hell is wrong with opening up a dialogue?

Quite eloquently said.

Lets face facts. Both groups are about segregating "black" society from "white" society. That is a pretty large commonality of interest.

This line made me suspect the article was satire. A local KKK leader really said that? It sounds stupid and naive.

But Abarr - who said he believes violence against black men is a hate crime and says his group is a non-violent religious organization that is focused on political issues

This may well be one of the strangest things I have ever read.  That takes into account the evolution deniers out there.

If they really oppose your existence they probably wouldn't be willing to sit down with you. They arranged for security. The worst that could happen is that the uy says, "F U Nigrah", you get up and the meeting is over. But, what if they realize there is common ground? What if they find ONE issue that they can both get behind? Nah, you're right. Better to just stay on your side of the fence and hate them from afar.
